Leap of Faith

Well furiends I’m officially a yard cat! After a rolly trip around the coast and up the canal yesterday Noccy was safely lifted out of the water and is currently drying out.

Within seconds of me being back on board I was running around the deck checking everything out!

Up in the clouds

I ran to the bow of the boat crouched down and wiggled ready to jump off….

Can you see me

The humans were shouting, “Bailey NOOOOO!” but I didn’t listen. It would’ve been so much fun to take a leap of faith and run around the yard.

Leap of faith!

Unfortunately for me the ‘kill joy’ humans caught me and took me straight inside. Now if I want to spend time outside I have to be on my lead and supervised.


It’s very humiliating. I think it’s about time that I remind the humans who’s the boss around here!

Bisous, Bailey

  3. OMG, your safety is soooooo important! You are the boss! But I am glad you are on your lead! I am an indoor boy and my mom worries when I go on our deck to take in sun and air! She is always watching. Take care my friend. Montyx

  4. Oh goodness, Bailey, it is good that you are so brave but really the humans have your best interests at heart and want to keep you safe. I worry that my girls will make a dash for freedom since they have been enjoying the nice weather on the catio and I always watch closely so they don’t get out especially when there has been a bold chipmunk or a especially obnoxious bird out there taunting them.

    BAILEY YOU SILLY BOY, you’re going to give the humans a heart attack!!
    You’re right they should know who is boss, but as your devoted servants part of their duty is to keep you safe, so sometimes it is for the best when they put the lead on you.
    You are so brave, sweet boy!

  9. Glad you didn’t leap! How long will you all be out of water? I know you’ll have lots to watch around the boatyard though……….

  16. Bailey, dear fellow, please remember that your humans only have your safety and best interests at heart! Imagine if you HAD TAKEN that leap! You might have injured yourself, hit a hard surface, or otherwise had an unpleasant landing. YOU are in great hands, buddy, and ALWAYS in charge! Just let the humans know how much you appreciate their concern, and then maybe they’ll relent a teeny bit!! BUT, ONLY MAYBE! XO Pat

  17. Bailey, Tell your humans, that you are cleverer that they think you are. When my dad brought me to a new home I ran out too. I disappear for two days and despite the new territory I found my way back. It was pawsome experience all good fun even sometime it was a bit scary to be on my own. Now I can tell you secretly, after that event my humans loved me even more. Stay cool, your good furiend Duszek.

    Dearest brofur, we really did think you were in charge. We hate to see that you are tethered. But it is better than be locked up. Be a good boy. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  1. […] I DID IT! Last night I managed to pull a mosquito net out of one of the smallest portholes, that the humans didn’t know I could squeeze through, get out onto the deck and JUMP down to the ground! It took a lot of planning and sneaking slowly because the humans can usually hear my bell when I try and get up to mischief and they stop me! I already told you about them stopping me the first time I tried to jump off a couple of days ago here. […]


I'd love to hear what you think....
