Okay, so this post has absolutely nothing to do with writing... but I thought y'all would get a kick out of this. :) This is Kitty-Kitty and he's my writing buddy. A day or two ago I was sitting outside on the patio with him. Now, as y'all can see, there are several mature trees close to the house, and bird feeders everywhere.
Yeah, a cat and birds.
It isn't in the picture, but off to the left is a humming bird feeder. I've been putting up several feeders for years, so we get a pretty good amount of humming birds. This is the first year we've had a cat, though.
Give it a few more weeks and all of mine will look like this picture I Googled, lol. So, Kitty-Kitty spies the little humming bird, and starts this odd cry/whimper thing. Now, he's used to the bigger birds like Red Birds and so on, but this little thing just flipped him out.
Our conversation went like this:
Me: See the birdie, Kitty-Kitty? Ohhhh, birdies! Pretty little birdie.
Kitty-Kitty: Meooooooow (Um, yeah, I've got my eye on it.)
Me: Now, don't go messing with my humming birdies! Or any of the birdies. Okay?
Kitty-Kitty: Meeeeow. (*snort* Yeah, right.)
Me: So, whatcha think of the little birdie?
Kitty-Kitty: Mmmmmmeow. (Snack time.)
Yes, I talk to the cat, lol. One of the humming birds buzzed Kitty-Kitty and he—brave cat that he is—ended up under my feet! Needless to say when the coast was clear he headed for the backdoor wanting inside. Oh man, I laughed till I cried, lol. I love him dearly, but I think we might have missed named him.
Scaredy cat might have been better, lol.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! This is prom weekend for the kiddo, so Saturday is going to be a busy time. My little girl is going to prom *sniff, sniff.*
