Trouble on a Tuesday - Field Explorer - by Lee

 First we start by acknowledging this: 

Now on to the tale.

It started as a nice walk around the field. I was being the best listener. Then Lady called me back because Phod was being pokey.

I caught the scent of something and next thing I knew I was in the field behind the field I am allowed in. This is a farmers field and let me tell you, it has some good deer poop. The Man slide through the fence and got me.

The walk continued well until we got to the barn. I have known something was living there and imagine my surprise when I saw 2 kittens. Man was tying his shoe. Lady, uncharacteristically froze (she says thank you PTSD - you are really inconvenient). Anyway, there was running and yelling and a very angry mother cat, and a kitten in my mouth, who I did not shake or appear to hurt, I just held it. 

Me waiting with Lady

The Man was angry and gave me to Lady while he went to see if he could see the kitten. He couldn't find it. Lady was upset and she thanked me for the opportunity to live with PTSD again. Phod had no idea what was going on and me, I was living my best life.

The field owners, who also own the barn, and Callie's people been told. They are all on alert for kittens. If some of Callie's people have their way, Callie will have a kitty sibling soon. I may not have the same off leash privileges in the field.


  1. Oh, Lee, this post goes from romantic, to fun, to terror, to my laugh at your final comment about your experience. It seems, though, that your "best life" is about to be curtailed.

  2. i enjoyed the tale from start to ending, and so happy there was a happy ending. we can't let dogs off leash here except in a fenced dog park with dozens of off leash dogs. that means none of our dogs have ever been off leash any where but the fenced back yard. off property they are on leash. we don't have beautiful feilds like you do, just house after house after house and half of those have dogs.. city living.. glad you did not roll in the poop

  3. Happy Happy 25th to your Lady and Man! Well done and I loved the photos!!

    Lee darling, that nose of yours is your best friend and worst enemy all in one.
    Glad all ended well
    Hugs Cecilia

  4. Happy anniversary!

    You sure had a great adventure, Lee! Do you think you'll be getting a kitty cat sibling?

  5. SILVER! A silver medal for a "golden" couple ... happy happy!
    Now, stay out of barns with baby kittens ...

    Now Lee... sigh... I am so glad you had fun. However, when the rest of the pack is distressed, that fun looses kudos-values. I do hope the kitties move along (or find homes) and thus save you from having to have Lady revisit PTSD. It's not a good thing, y'unnerstand? Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  7. Happy Anniversary to your people! That sounds like quite an adventure you went on Hailey! We're glad the kitten is okay.

  8. I have never met a kitty. You are so lucky, Hailey! Happy Anniversary to your peeps!

  9. OMD Hailey, what a great day!!! We are sure the kitty is fine. Hopefully all will be forgotten, the kitties will be relocated, and the peeps will let you off leash again soon.

  10. Happy anniversary to Lady and Man. Huge congratulations!
    And Hailey, how exciting that you caught a kitty.
    I'll be honest, I would have shaken it. But then I'm a terrier.
    Toodle pip!

  11. We truly enjoyed your adventure today. Truth be told, we might not have been quite so gentle, but Mom says we will never get the chance to show anyone if she has anything to say about it. We hope the little kitty is just fine.

    Happy Anniversary to the peeps!!!

  12. Wowzer. What a story. I'm glad that it all turned out okay. I have PTSD too, and it stinks when it reappears. Hugs to your mom.

    Happy Anniversary to your mom and dad!


    You sound likes you had a very fun day my furiend!!!! This is why Ma NEVER lets me off leash. It's like she knows me or somethings.....🤣

  14. Happy anniversary to your 'pawrents!'
    We hope the kitten is ok and doesn't hold any grudges. We're told mama cats do hold grudges so probably good if you don't get to run free in the field any time soon.
    Your fur-iends,
    Norman & Elsa 🐾
