Rocky says 'Hello'...

So Scar and I were sitting on the front porch last night communing with Rocky. Rocky is pretty used to us...the porch is about 20 feet from the Squirrel Tree, where Rocky was happily munching leftovers the birds and squirrels had left behind. I did have to yell at Scar once though, he went dancing over and gave Rocky a slap...merely playing...which is fine, because it doesn't bother Rocky much (he simply turned his back and kept eating) but some of the local 'coons don't appreciate Scar much, and I'm afraid one of these days he'll mess with the wrong one. I can't seem to get Scar to understand that they are wild animals...and not always friendly.

Scar wants to be friends with everybody. I never see squirrels.

Scar never uses claws or anything, he just wants to play and Rocky seems to realize there is no threat intended.

WOW, giving a slap to a raccoon could be dangerous, better than scar keeps in mind that they are stronger than he is.

Somehow I think Scar is smart enough to know which ones he can play with, cats aren't stupid.
