Sam’s Morning Excitement

Standard

Well!  What a morning I’ve had!  It all started when I had to wake Mom up extra early (she wasn’t too happy about that) because I saw something out the front door and had to tell her.  Yep.  It was still dark out but you know we cats can see stuff you humans can’t when the light is dim.  She didn’t see what I could see until she cracked the door open and went on the porch.  There were about eight HUGE turkey buzzards out there!  Big, nasty, scary things.  We often see them flying around in the sky here but this is the first time they landed in MY yard!  They didn’t even budge when Mom went out there either – they stood their ground and walked around like they owned the place……..Mom said she wasn’t sure why they were there – but we did have a very heavy dew last night so maybe they were thirsty or maybe they just liked the look of our nice green lawn and decided to camp out for the night??????

Sam's Front Yard

Looks like a landing field for turkey buzzards doesn't it ?!!

They were right between the oak on the right and the garden on the left…..making themselves at home!  I’m going to keep my eye out all day in case they come back. 

The other excitement is that in the local paper yesterday Mom said there was an article about bobcat sightings around here! YES – great big cats that look a little bit like me (well, sort of)…..Mom says they aren’t sweet like me though….they haven’t been seen right here in Warrenton but VERY CLOSE BY…..so you see – my “house and garden patrol” duties are getting more complicated every day. 

It’s always SOMETHING……………..
