It's funny that you say that, because when I looked at the photos he reminded me of the Cheshire cat!

Yes he is very bold. I've been taking him outside since he was a kitten so he is very comfortable with it. I got a stroller when he and Roxy were kittens because I figured it would be easier to bring them to the vet and stuff with a stroller. Since I had the stroller I started taking them out for walks with it, and so they got used to all the noises and things outside. Unfortunately Church is so fascinated with the outdoors that I have to watch it when I open doors because he wants to go out! When I open the front door to go somewhere, Church will put his paws up on the screen door and look up at me like, "Can I come too?"
He just loves the bicycle basket I got. I think it's all the smells that waft by him, he really enjoys riding in it!
The funny thing about Church and trees is that if you bring him up to a tree or if you hold him and put his paws on a tree trunk, he won't try to climb it. Instead, he starts scratching and sharpening his claws like crazy!
The photos I took of him in the tree involved me putting him onto the tree limb. Once he was on it though he enjoyed walking around and exploring. This was a tree with low limbs, and the one he is sitting on in most of the photos is about chest-height to me so I had no trouble getting him back down. I let him climb onto a slightly higher limb but I just made sure he didn't go any higher than I could reach. I chose that tree because even if he climbed up high somehow, the tree was not very tall and the limbs were mostly horizontal so if I had to I could have climbed up and brought him back down.
