Eleven: Sunday Spring Morning

Leo in springtime. He is out on a Sunday morning. Shall we see where he went?

The first thing Leo does is wander to his field probably for his morning wee. It was a cold Spring morn and Leo seemed in a bit of a rush. He only went 3km and spend his time doing his patrol near the walls in the field, and then down to his play area in the woods.

Following that he wandered down towards the quarry but doubled back on himself half way there and came back to the streets of Crescent Walk where he played in the back gardens of the houses around the corner before returning home.

As standard and steady morning wander for an excellent kitten.

Sixth: Early morning wanderings in the snow

Leo did not go to sleep until two the night before this early morning walk at nine and as such he was not gagging for a wee as he normally is at this time. It was Sunday morning, it was still snowy. Let us see where he has gone.

Probably the first thing to notice is how Leo sticks to human areas on this wander. He spends a little time in the woods but mostly he is around the houses of Crescent Walk after starting his walk by going to the woods.

Kären and I had a sneaky wander around the top of the woods where Leo goes this afternoon. It has steep banks down to the beck but Leo stays away from the beck and sticks to a cat-path. He has a small run in the field but the snow was probably too deep for him and he trotted back.

Its interesting that he has a number of paths through gardens towards (or away from, in this case) the field. He has more than one route to and from the field though the houses.

In the middle of the walk he came home and sat around for a while. The tracker is not brilliant at tracking Leo sitting around and it seems that he is darting about small areas. He is not, he is very much sleeping.

He went out for another wander after his sleep which was when we were having out sneaky wander into his field. He did not go into the field but it is possible he saw us in it (or smelled, Leo’s sense of smell is good and he can sniff people before he sees them)

He went into the woods but rather than scrabbling through the mud he ran through someone’s garden and then wandered home.

Third try – Sunday morning wanderings

Leo has been out for a morning wander. Ignore the long straight lines on the left – those are the tracker trying to get a position – but look rather at the clump on the right. Of course the tracker clicks every 3 seconds and a 19 month year old cat can cover a long distance in that time meaning it is possible he has run those distances. More data will tell us if that is a route he takes often or a blip.

We can start to see Leo’s path through the gardens. He goes to the corner of Crescent Walk but not to the road which is interesting and it is also interesting that he ignores the neighbours garden considering that the neighbour spends a lot of energy complaining that Leo has been in his garden.

I suspect the large spider mess of the map in the bottom right is where we would find Leo’s seven lost collars.
