Willow the Cat goes bird-watching..

Willow belongs to Victoria-Sofia and Saraya-Grace
Today from my upstairs window, I caught him trying to catch a bird.
The tree is usually full of waxeyes, sparrows, starlings, blackbirds
and elusive Riroriro.
The birds were teasing him unmercifully, swooping close,
and Willow lurching dangerously.

I love the way cats manage at times like this, to look so self possessed and aloof.

  1. OMG, Willow looks like our Chester (years departed) and our great love. Chester never caught a bird...he'd get down on his haunches, wiggle his tail, then start running, all the while crying Meow, Meow, Meow!

    Thank you, Joan, for a warm trip down Memory Lane!

  2. Chester is certainly determined, isn't he, and you, Joan, so clever with your captions. Love it.

  3. Love the captions you've added! Cats are such wonderful creatures.

  4. lol! You're so right - cats try to be blasé about even the most awkward of sitations.

    I loved Willow's story, Joan. :)

  5. Wonderful sequence! Cats do hate to be embarassed.
