Great activity in our shamba
I wonder what these strange poles and wires are
Before long, we went outdoors with our yoomens. I stayed in the flowerbed near the kitchen door, while Shadow prowled the shamba. All cats are curious, many cats are nervous, but there is only one cat who is suspicious about every strange thing in his territory. That cat is Shadow!

Oi Shadow, what do you see?
Does it smell, Shadow? Perhaps it' s the dog?
Mmm, Shadow is calmly surveying the scene now...
OK, so now he's rolling around near the wire
Uh-oh. There's Ambrose and he is SO inexperienced!
Yeow! That monster bit Ambrose!
As the monster "zapped" Ambrose, our yoomens cheered, saying "the thing is working". Even though Ambrose' head is cut in the picture below, you can see the shock by the way his tail has bushed...
Ambrose' bushy tail after the monster bit him!
In our household of cats, when something happens to one of us, the others react in sympathy. Shadow also bushed his tail and froze in his paw prints!
Shadow frozen in his paw prints and he has a bushy tail!
Ambrose retreated to a safe distance while watching the monster that bit him!
Later I heard the yoomens saying that at least we cats wouldn't be tempted to jump over the reed fence now as happened again this week, when Shadow went over and the yoomens had to dash outside and shoo him back! Now we'd not get into danger landing int he big garden where two big dogs live.
I realize now that they brought in the monster for our own good. But I still cannot work out why they chuckle merrily when they look at Ambrose and call him Sparky. Yoomens! I wonder if we intelligent felines will ever understand them.
