Back Yard Adventures with the KCC Adventure Team

We are having serious adventure withdrawals over here! The KCC Adventure Team hasn’t been outdoors in weeks because it’s been way too hot. Not only is it just plain miserable, it’s also not safe for the kitties to be out in the heat. We’ve been hoping and praying for it to cool down some, but unfortunately 90 degree weather will be our norm for a while longer. While that means we can’t get outdoors for a big adventure anytime soon, I decided to take my own advice and have a little back yard adventure this past weekend.

Back yard adventures are nice and easy because I don’t have to load the cats up in the car and pack a bunch of gear. Plus, we can easily just go back inside once we get too hot. There’s also plenty to keep everyone entertained in the back yard.

Before bringing the cats out, I laid down a picnic blanket beside Milton’s tree, along with some bubbles and my phone for pictures. Then one at a time I brought the KCC Adventure Team Members out for a short back yard adventure. (Because Bobby was busy, I could only take one cat out at a time. I don’t like handling multiple adventure cats at once – I’m too paranoid for that!)

First up was Caster! Caster is our adventure-cat-in-training. Because he is just starting out, the back yard was a perfect adventure destination for him. My idea was that we would enjoy some relaxation time on the blanket and take in the surroundings, but Caster didn’t want anything to do with that. He wanted to be up and about, exploring the yard. I walked him around for a little bit, which he loved. He is a natural!

Sophie was up next. She was much more into my blanket-time idea than Caster was. Though, of course, she decided to lay in the grass just beside the blanket rather than on it. I blew some bubbles for her too, which she enjoyed watching.

Kylo Ren, on the other hand, was not into the bubbles. He did enjoy laying around on the blanket though!

Get. That. Bubble. Off. My. Paw.

Though the back yard adventure was fun, I must admit that it didn’t last long. It was too hot and humid, and I kept getting bitten by mosquitos. Oh the joys of Georgia summers. Fall, are you at least on your way yet?!
