Watching raindrops outside is very serious business. A buddy system is suggested.
“Mom! Be quiet! We’re hunting birds on the patio!” Off camera, a number of small birds flitted around on the patio and backyard, presumably catching insects and worms. Alternatively, Mau and Charlie were contemplating the universe while staring at raindrops and me taking photos disturbed them. Both options are possible.
Today was a beautiful day–a balmy 70 degrees, sunny with a cool breeze. In order to take advantage of the lovely fresh air, we opened the windows in the house. Naturally, all three cats were most intrigued by what lay outside. So many smells! Sassy birds!
Boudicca opted for a more secluded window in Aaron’s office.
Charlie found sniffing the screen a most enjoyable pastime.
Charlie watched the birds alighting on the peach tree in the backyard. As I snapped this photo, he stretched languorously.
Boudicca came to visit me in my office.
Where was Garrus during this time? He was oddly difficult to photograph. A couple of times I saw him sitting on a windowsill next to Charlie but he jumped down before I could get the shot.
Garrus seemed most content to sunbathe on this scratching pad.
I tried to get a good photo of Garrus sleeping on this blue elephant pillow. Charlie saw me and inserted himself into the photo too. Notice that he had to show me all of his toes.
“Hi Mom, you’ve come to pet me, right?”
Notice the subtle shift in expression from this photo…
…to this one. Garrus is often inscrutable but I find his expressions amusing.
As always, the boy like to enjoy a lounge together after a scamper session. Clearly they have a busy schedule.
Do your kitties like to watch the goings-on outside through windows? Are they keen birdwatchers or do they have a running vendetta with squirrels or rabbits? Do your cats find choice spots in which to sun themselves?
