Cat Circles

We noticed recently that Cat Circle Traps were all over Twitter and the internet, so we decided to set a trap in our house to test.

Internet Cat
According to the legend, cats are irresistibly drawn to circles and will want to sit in one. So we taped a circle to our kitchen floor and left it there for 36 hours to see if we would observe Diogenes or Freyja inside the circle.

36 hours later, we did not see either of them sitting inside the circle while we were watching. Maybe our circle was too pentagon-y to be irresistible to cats?

On Saturday, we drove to Destin to take in the Kite Festival on peninsula at Destin Harbor. The festival was hosted by the Kitty Hawk Kites store. The weather couldn't be better, 80 and a breeze. To visit the kites, we took a water shuttle from the harborwalk to the peninsula. Besides the giant decorative kites, there was stunt kite and kite surfing demos. A lovely day indeed.
