friday cat blogging #2: who needs TV?
It's springtime, and nature is all around us. I helped the situation along by hanging a birdfeeder with seeds next to the hummingbird feeder. The result of this is many, many birdies that fly in to the patio area, and many, many birdies and squirrels that hang out underneath, to catch the seeds that drop. A lot of seeds drop.
Those birds and squirrels are wily fellows, always knowing when I have the camera and flying away at precisely the time that I start to take their picture. But this squirrel didn't seem to care. As you can see, Deuce is enthralled by him (or her). She sat at the screen door for twelve hours straight yesterday, watching nature. Often there will be two or three birds at the feeder, and three or four wandering around on the concrete.
One birdie came right up to the screen and I swear the poor cat was going to have a heart attack, she was so excited. She didn't do anything except sit up, as in "what the hell do I do? I know I'm supposed to do something, but there's this screen door here..." Needless to say, the bird was fine, and flew away when it had its fill of seeds.
