Bengal Cat and Occasional Critters. Pennsylvania USA [email protected]
Bengal cats are known to like water. So I get asked if Pouncey likes water often. Well he sort of likes it. When he was a kitten I tried putting him in the bathtub and he was traumatized by the experience so now won't even go in the bathroom. He doesn't mind getting his feet wet crossing a stream and sometimes loves running around in the rain. But he doesn't like swimming or playing in water. Does your cat like water?
For Throwback Thursday we have a groundhog Pouncey and I came across. Rather than run this guy decided to stand his ground and make an angry grinding sound with his teeth. I was even able to pat him on the head. He did want to bite me but luckily he couldn't jump. Even as we walked away he just stood there. Some say he's still standing there to this very day.
Took Pouncey for an ATV ride yesterday out to one of our favorite spots. Unfortunately it's now marked No Trespassing and they cut down trees to block access. I found the owner and got permission to go back there but without ATV access I can't get to the pretty spots. So we went and found a new place to explore. I'll go back later without Pouncey and try and find new access, I don't like taking Pouncey off road unless I'm familiar with the trails.
Trying something different. This photo was taken under #365nm ultraviolet light. Unlike normal UV and backlights this is outside of the visible spectrum and produces no visible light. The orange stuff I assume is spider excrement. Sorry but I couldn't identify this spider. Edit thinking it's a Enoplognatha ovata an introduced species native to Europe. @mnochisaki14 @insecthaus_adi @isabetabug Any guesses? 1/4" long, green abdomen, yellow cephalothorax, no orb web.
I've been seeing this cat hanging around at a neighbors house. I never took the owner as much of a cat guy so I stopped to inquire about it and take some pictures. He told me the cat started coming around in October and it was getting cold so he started letting it inside. He hasn't named it and like many cats around here was probably a stray or dumped off. Good to know there are nice people still out there.
