Shortly after Felix moved in, he was introduced to the three horses in the field across the track. I don't THINK he had seen horse before but, in typical Felix style, he was quite relaxed, touching noses with them as I held him.

Felix and his equine friend

Well, what did we start? Felix has an obsession for horses. Twice recently, we've found him way up the field, but yesterday he outdid himself. The photo really doesn't do him justice. He was rubbing round their legs, especially the horse in the photo, but the other two weren't excluded. At one point, he had his paws up the horse's front leg and looked like he was licking it, in the same way as he stretches up us and licks our ears or noses. The horse seemed quite relaxed about it all.

I hope he doesn't get hurt - the horses certainly aren't threatened by him in any way - but we can't watch him all the time. I wonder if he's going to take up riding...

There are cats at the stables where I keep Smokey. They don't worry about the horses but I've never seen any of them interact with them like Felix does.

That Felix is quite a cat! Hope to come back and see what more he finds to be up to! (Found your blog by way of Claire's, BTW! Funny that she chose the same post as me to comment on...)
