Spring is an exciting time here at The House of 9 Lives! There is more activity outside as nature is waking up from her winter slumber. The wildlife is out and about, and therefore, there is more entertainment for us. Just the other day “He” called us all to the window to see a Fox Squirrel in the front yard. “She” wasn’t quick enough to grab the camera, so, we are borrowing this picture from autonomous1one1 on Flickr (we hope that was okay to do!). Check out thier photostream – they have a lot of beautiful nature photos!
This Fox Squirrel looks just like the one we saw! He didn’t stay around for long, he would jog a few steps, stop, stand up and look around, and soon he was out of sight.
More good entertainment came our way when these guys stopped by for a visit. He recently filled our squirrel and bird feeders. Because He had more food than the bird feeder would hold, He poured the left overs out on the patio. Shortly after, She snapped a picture of these beautiful Indigo Buntings:
I don’t remember having seen anything so
delicious beautiful when I was an outside kitty! I think they are blueberry flavored colored! I better watch what I say – that kind of thinking is what made me a house-cat to start with! He and She never appreciated all the fine gifts I was bringing them!
Anyway, I’m really excited to see all the activity going on outside. You can see I’m just beside myself with happiness!
