Paladin Among the Flax

Paladin is in full bloom among the flax in Effieland, the garden our cat Effie and Paladin share. The garden is fenced all around with gates and locks. The top is also fenced to repel raptors.

Two cats and a tiny snake

A very small baby Gopher snake (center, looks like a brown cord between Effie’s and Paladin’s paws) fended its way through Effieland yesterday. Effie, a veteran of carrying a full grown Garter snake around in her mouth, and Paladin, treating the Gopher snake as a living toy, took turns carrying the snake in their mouths and playing harmlessly with it on the ground.  Eventually they freed the tiny reptile, which slithered its way to the fence. Paladin laid on top of the snake. Somehow the snake made it out of Effieland.

Paladin on perch

We bought and installed this window perch for Effie before Paladin came into our lives and home. Whether Effie is kind enough to permit Paladin perch time, or whether he simply appropriated the perch, we can’t know. All I know is that he looks as adorable and as comfortable on the perch as Effie does. They typically share things quite well.

You may view Effie on the perch here.
