Meezer Movie Monday

Merlin: Guess what? I got to go outside for the first time yesterday!!! It was very exciting! It was nice and sunny and warm here (+18°C) so my mom decided to take me out in our Garten (yard)! It was very exciting! There were lots of interesting smells in the air! The grass also felt very strange on my feet - I've never felt grass before!

I had a lot of fun exploring outside, and I can't wait to go out again! My mom says that once I stop growing, she'll buy me a nice soft Puppia harness like Dragonheart has!

For those of you who can't view video, I'm included some photos of my outdoor adventure below. You can also access a different copy of the video here.

Way to go, Merlin, you look like you were having such fun exploring! Enjoyed the little movie of you and love that song by The Beatles, one of my favorites!

Oh Merlin!! Your first time outside! You looked a bit unsure of the grass :) I bet it was a new feeling on your toes. I think you will want to go out again sometime.

TT said...

Merlin you looked a bit scared of the grass. Did it hurts your feets any? I hasn't been outside since my Mommy Beans found me so I can't remember whats grass feels like.

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Oh, Merlin! How exciting for you! We remember our first time outside. We were much older than you! Grayson was 3 years old and Gandalf was 2 before we ever went outside. It was wonderful, wasn't it?! So many things to sniff and chew on!

Princess said...

Oh this is really cute and very cool!
Merlin is a good boy!

Happy Monday Merlin and DH

It's great to be outside in spring. I hope for you the weather will not change again so quick.

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

How exciting that you got to go outside Merlin! I love going outside! But I also like coming into the house though, so I can have good foods and comfortable places to rest, as well as all my toys and treats.

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Outside in the warm sun is great, isn't it Merlin! That grass does take some getting used to, but is lovely to lie down in the shade on the grass on hot sunny days!

The Whiskers & Purrs Gang said...

Wow!!! Looks like you had a very big adventure!

Very truly yours,
The Whiskers & Purrs Gang

Junior said...

It looks like you had a fun time Merlin! Grass feels funny on the feet doesn't it...

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Oh Merlin, how exciting that you got to go outside! Doesn't the grass feel nice on your toesies?!

Tybalt said...

How exciting, Merlin! Did your big brother DH get to go outside, too?

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Grass feels kinda weerd at first, doesn't it Merlin! Yoo must be a furry brave mancat, Speedy freaks out when mom just tries to put his harness on.

The Furry Kids said...

Merlin, I can tell that you've been practicing with your harness. It didn't make you go boneless or anything! You are very, very brave.

Sunny's Mommy said...

That looks like lots of fun :-D

Monty Q. Kat said...

I want to go outside now!!!

Artsy Catsy said...

Me too, Monty - outside NOW! ... well, when it stops storming. Merlin, even though the grass tickles your toes, you'll grow to love it!!

Team Tabby said...

We liked your movie, Merlin, of you outside in your yard. After you get over the newness of grass 'n smells, you will want to go out again and again. We are a bit envious of your 18C. temps. You didn't even need a coat.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

How neat. Jenny used to tell us about Jan taking her and her sister outside in a harness but we live too close to a road here. That looks like such fun.

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

Out side is fun! We may have to watch our step now when we play in the backyard. :p ~Queen Snickers

The Devil Dog said...

Wow, that must have been a lot of fun. That must have been different, stone tile, grass. Glad you had fun. But trust me, when it is 10 degrees F out and you need to pee and it is pouring rain, it is NO fun.

Roxy

The Devil Dog said...

I meant snow, not rain, but I think you get the idea.

Roxy

Samantha & Tigger said...

Oh wow, outside! Lucky kitty! I want to try to take our kitties outside, but I don't think they would like the leash thing.

Cecil the Cougar: said...

Merlin that looks like a lot of fun! Your grasses are very green! I am not good at walking on my harness...I just sort of sit.

Skeeter, LC, and Ayla said...

Cool, Merlin, ya walkd on GRASS! I found that soo 'citin just last month!

Ayla

Forty Paws said...

It appears that you don't like the feel of grass on your toesies. That's ok. It takes some getting used to. We only tolerate it because it means we are outside in our enclosure.

Jimmy Joe said...

Great job exploring there, li'l buddy! You have a great soundtrack, too.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Camie's Kitties said...

erp said...

The cat looks so scared in the photographs. Looked like a little baby learning to walk.

Wrigley & Cobalt said...

Hehe, you look very confused in the grass! But it looks like lots of fun. We can't wait until we can do that.

The Crew said...

Oh cool, Merlin! You've done something I've never done -- touch grass. How did it feel? Did it smell like bugs?

The Furry Bambinos said...

Yay for you, Merlin! You look like you were having a good time sniffing in your garden!
