Frankie the Sniffer

I love ginger tabby cats, having had one myself (the late Louie the ginger cat), so this post was a real treat for me today! Frankie is one beautiful cat!

Charles asks the question about whether your cat(s) is/are “sniffers” on their walks. What do you say?

Also, I recommend anyone following my blog check Charles’ blog out. It’s on my “favorites” list.

Bad Cat Chris

Lately, “taking Frankie for a walk” has become “taking Frankie for a smell.” It seems he has to stop at every bush, shrub or flower and give it a good long sniff before we can move on.

That means I have to stand and wait for him to do his business, even though Frankie’s “business” is to smell every plant in the neighborhood.  cat Frankie smelling plantcat Frankie smelling plant

I can’t imagine what he is smelling that would be alluring to a cat.cat Frankie smelling plantcat Frankie smelling plant

Maybe he was a gardener in a past life.cat Frankie smelling plantcat Frankie smelling plant

Or maybe he thinks he’s a dog and just has to smell everything.cat Frankie smelling plantcat Frankie smelling plant

When Chris goes outside he will eat some grass but he does not go out of his way to sniff plants. What do you think? Is your cat a plant sniffer?

  1. Sometimes Purrseidon is a sniffer, but mainly she and Mr. M are observers.

    That said, we were walking the ‘jungle trail’ when she caught a whiff of the Atlantic…. and she HAD to see it. Up and over the dune we went, as close to being dragged by a 10# cat as I wish to admit…. I still don’t understand why she seems to be obsessed with water, but I try to accept it.

    • I’m sure there is some of that, too. I know when I walked Louie the ginger cat, there were certain places where he’d chase (and beat up…) any cat he saw, then we’d come to other places where he’d see the same cat at a different time in a different place and all they’d do is exchange noses kisses. I always felt it was territorial behavior.
