I am very impressed with Elmo's very fat ringed tail-very handsome indeed!!!

Looks like you're having a good time with the new camera. It was pretty steady filming, I thought! Nice to go on a little walk with you and the critters. Maybe sometime you'll shoot a film with the bowl(s)? That would be a treat....

Oh Jackie, i just look at your video, is this Maurice ? I can imagine yes, as i recognize his incredible eyes.
I hesitate between tears and smile as this film is so beautiful.
Mister Mo (i can hear you said that) is like a fox, on the look out for every noise or anything moving in the land, climbing in trees, wild...
You can't imagine how happy i am to see him and some of the Ginger family's fellows, in real life. It is a great gift you gave us. Thank you so so much.
I believe i am going to look at it more and more.

(Jackie) Mo has been sleeping on my bed most nights and almost always walking the bounds of the village with me in starlight. I love the way his tail always seems to be asking questions. Trying to get the film quality better. The camera is hd but I seem to be loosing detail in compression to youtube and will look to see if there are things I can d in filming and in upload to get sharper images.
There will be more as Elmo is fond of the camera.
And good that Pixie came too, although she is not well and hasn't been for about 8 months now.

I'm coming to your blog from Karen's Sew and Sow Life.
What a beautiful cat and a lovely walk. Now I see all the sights and sounds my "indoor" cats are missing!

The constant feline search for a High Place; the better to both see and be seen.

Awsome! Walking with Gingers a lovely experience!
I miss Harry cat and Bobby dog, they both came out walking with me, still do I think!
In my photos taken last night, there is an 'orb', I swear it's Harry sitting on the birdbath! (it leaks so is planted instead.)
Thanks for sharing.
Have a great weekend.

What a wonderful place to be a cat. I made me feel sorry for my Cicero who is cooped up inside all day

Personally, I think the video is a masterpiece. I reveled in seeing Elmo and Pixie and the dogs in their perfectly beautiful environment. What a treasure this is. (And Elmo's tail is so very fine indeed.)

Just read your reply to comments and am thrilled that there will be more films of Elmo...and so glad that Pixie felt like coming along for this walk so she could be preserved on film also.)

Loved seeing 'Mo on the go. Rubs and purrs to Pixie.

Wonderful- glad you shared that with us. The wind, the sheep, the bark, the crunch of grass and of course, The Cat, grand on the post, supreme on the rail.....and discreet with the Dog on the Other Side.

It is like being there with you to watch the video! Your still pictures of the cats and dogs on walks are wonderful, and this adds another dimension, seeing the action of both Elmo and Pixie, as well as the dogs running. But it is the sound of the sheep bleating that really captivated us. Really super video.
Won't you consider starting a Bed and Breakfast, complete with walks with the animals :-)

Sweet Pixie, glad she was able to go too.

Lovely, lovely images of the ginger fire against the sky! Thank you so much for sharing and it was wonderful to hear you as well!

Good on ya for working with the youtube. I'm sure there's a way to keep your hd films in hd. But I think youtube has a nasty habit of compressing them to for ease in loading.

Griffin said...

Wonderful to see them all and to hear your voice too. Mr Mo clearly more interested in showing his balancing skills...he was most likely a tightrope walker in a past life and will be something greater...like another cat for instance in the next life.

Walking with Gingers is easily more impressive than walking with dinosaurs.

Thank you so much for this.

Rosalind said...

This brought back happy memories of walking that same route two years ago. Alas, no cats came with us, they know better than to walk with strangers!

Wonderful! Thank you for sharing.

Sad to know that Pixie is still not well. Elmo is indeed the lord of the gatepost!

ChrisJ said...

How nice to see the cats and dogs as warm, live, moving beings. I heard the lambs as well as the sheep. Wonderful.

RobynK said...

Thanks for inviting us along for the walk! Your animals remind me of mine only my cat is a grey striped one and I have a border collie dog too. Off to view Elmo's other 'adventures' as he looks like everything he does is highly important :D.
