Some more astounding photos of Argentée in the woods in Ottawa:

NCC and Argentee

The first 2 photos in the first series of 3 are of the National Capital Commission Parkway, which is forest land running straight through the heart of Ottawa for 40 kilometres (25 miles for Americans). In the third photo we see Argentée sitting in the grass on top of the cliff you see in the first photo.

In the second series of 4 photos, you see Argentée in the grass again, and in the last photo you can see her merrily dragging me back home along the forest path. That is why she is in fact a forest cat. It is her breed. And she knows exactly where she is going.

photos of my little house, front yard etc. in Ottawa, Ontario, the capital city of Canada, May 9 2018:

I have been moderating this blog for years now, but I have never yet shown where I live and what it is like. My neighbourhood is quiet, but then so are almost all of them anywhere in Canada. I live in a little row house with 2 bedrooms, a living/dining-room, a laundry room and a garage. This is the house where Argentée spends all her time outside spring, summer and autumn, except of course when it rains, because she is after all a cat!

In the next 3 posts, I shall tell you some very interesting things about Canada, which is so very much unlike the United States in so many key respects.

Hope you like the photos!

Richard

 


POST 1,800 Once again, Argentée is outdoors, happy and snoozing in 27 celsius degree weather!
