Back in the day, both Inkblot and Domino used to stroll around on top of the fence between our house and our neighbors. The only way they could get up, though, was to jump onto the air conditioning unit first and then jump from there to the fence. That all ended a couple of years ago when we got a new air conditioner, which was too high and too rounded for them to get to. The days of fence walking were over.
Until now! But I’m stumped about what’s going on. For about the last week or two they’ve been roaming along the fence again. Our first thought was that they were going into our neighbor’s yard and jumping up from there, but Domino never goes over there. The air conditioning unit hasn’t changed, and I’m pretty sure it’s just too high for them to jump on. They always appear from the southeast corner, but there’s nothing there that would help them make the jump. So what’s going on?
One of these days I’ll be outside and catch them in the act, and when I do I’ll report back. In the meantime, here they are patrolling the fence. Don’t you feel safer already?
