Shadow and Stellar so enjoy their time out in the yard and playing on the deck. Even in the bitter cold of winter, they found time at least once a day to venture out to play. Now that spring has sprung and the days are warmer, the boys are out and about many times during the day. They love to romp in the yard as well as chasing each other in the yard.
I have a few toys I bring outside each day that they also enjoy. At times they are like two toddlers fighting over the toys.
The patio in the back of the yard is now finally free of snow. Shadow loves to go there and roll all over taking a cat dirt bath!
Soon they will be happy when I set out more patio furniture.
Watching the two of them is always a delight. They enjoy each other so much.
Even when they are apart for just a few hours, they greet each other with head bumps and sometimes even vocal sounds. Shadow will then usually immediately groom Stellar. Stellar gets in a few licks on Shadow, but Shadow doesn’t like that too much. Yet he loves to groom Stellar for sometimes 20 minutes at a time.
It won’t be long before the heated house and winter shelter are put away for the season. The deck canopy will be rolled out this weekend giving some protection from the rain. I am also considering putting the heated house away. The tent shelter will remain up into May, but Shadow and Stellar are rarely using the heated house. I have turned it off and it is still too warm inside. It will be nice to have some deck space back to make room for some potted plants. Thank goodness winter is over!!
