a day (or two) in the life of Big Mama
Well, after Big Mama took her nose dive into the landscape brick around the bottom of her pond, I decided to widen the ramp so I added two boards and then after further consideration, put some foam underneath, you know, just in case she attempted another nose dive.
She approached it a couple of times and then retreated into the pond. Looked different, I guess, so she had to ponder it a while.
I decided to remove the extra boards and I guess that looked familiar.
For some reason, the camera started focusing in on the screen.
Apparently, the nose dive into the brick made an impression after all.
Every foot or so, she'd test the edge.
After her initial obsession with the fence, she started to explore the yard.
Emma, the cat, wonders what this thing in the yard is.
She did eventually pounce but it was just a moving rock, after all.
Later Big Mama started digging the first of several holes but I don't think she has laid any eggs yet.
She's acting very weird this morning, coming to the end of the bridge/top of the ramp doing her digging thing on the wood. When I went out there she just gave me the eye but when I reached for her she ran across the bridge and into the pond. She's been out of the water several times since then just hanging out there at the top of the ramp for a while and then diving back in the water.
Oh, just now, she finally walked down the ramp so she's on the move, digging again in the same spot as before.
Now if she would just figure out that the ramp will get her back in the pond.
