Bought some new retractable leashes so the girls could have a little more leeway when we go outside. (If the leashes look taut in the pics, that's why. We're not actually tugging them.)
And then, of course, we had to test them out, so we went to Woodland Meadow Park.
Mochi always spends the beginning of any outing in crouch mode.
Mika found herself a bird to stare at.
She's always alert and excited for new adventures.
Woodland Meadow Park is lovely, but there is one thing we didn't know about it (having never gone there before).
It's an off-leash dog park.
So whenever a dog came by, we scooped them up until the owners let us know the kitties were safe.
There was much crouching and widening of eyes whenever a dog passed by.
All were very well behaved, though. No one chased our kitties. There was one very large dog who was actually scared of them (and all cats), which we found amusing.
The kitties were torn between intrigue and apprehension at every passing dog.
They did pretty well though.
Eventually Mochi lead us down out of the park and wanted to walk around the neighborhood, so we did. Got a lot more actual walking done. They were pretty good about staying on the sidewalk and keeping up the pace.
I'm proud of our girls.
