TGI Friday

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 hebrave 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.*



  1. Reminds me of my poodle, the world's bravest dog...behind the fence. We go out on a walk and meeting a bigger dog will send her scurrying behind my legs. :) Kitty-kitty spent some time outdoors. Who knows what (mis)adventures he had with a few of those birds!

  2. *laugh* Well, as soon as there are baby birdies I'm sure there will be more (mis) adventures, lol. I know for a fact Mocking Birds will come after ya.


  3. That's hilarious! My cat sort of burbles when she sees birds. It's so cute. *hands over drink for YOU* For the prom night!

  4. LOL, well, I survived the night. :)
