So this was our morning excitement….a Mommy and her two little babies helping themselves to our squirrel proof birdfeeders (which the squirrels figured out ages ago!!). Sunflower seeds seem to be the favorite food of ALL our creatures (except me of course).
We haven’t had any rain here in a looooooooong time, and things are drying up including all the greenery in the woods so the deer are up in the yard helping themselves to EVERYTHING. Mom calls her flower gardens “the all you can eat salad bar” because they LOVE the impatiens so much. At this point Mom says “let them eat whatever they want” – after all, without any rain, everything looks pretty pitiful anyway!
Except me of course……..I never look pitiful – unless I’m trying to get an extra helping of treats. Then I can look downright heartbreaking. Heh heh…..we cats are masters of communication when we WANT to be – including a wide variety of facial expressions to accompany our other forms of expression – like ankle biting, howling and yowling, chirping, and of course the old standby – hissing.
I have a feeling there will be a lot more deer wandering the yard today so I’ll keep an eye out from my vantage point on top of the couch at the big window into the backyard. Maybe I can even get Mom to take a DECENT photo of them to share with you. It’s tough to capture them on film because they are on the alert and Mom can’t sneak out to the deck without a bit of noise when she opens the door. I hope we get some rain soon – it might give the deer more green stuff to eat instead of just seeds. I worry about those little babies!!!
I’m just a softie……..of course I’m the most important bit of wild life around here but I DO worry about the wandering cats, the deer, and all other creatures…….makes me realize how great it is to be ONE SPOILED CAT.
