Presents?

2452ee44736c5de8658ef36485f7cd30And then there are those days when you look across the room and see this small beige fuzzy thing by your sliding door that looks like it has a tail.  And there in her little warm bed is  Little Misssy Princess Floofster Cassie SassyPants resting her chin on the side wall and giving you that bored look.  And as you slowly approach it, she sits up and watches you closely.  Gently, you tap it with your foot.  This brings on that tilted head, Dafuq you doing mom look from her.  Still unsure, you go and get a couple of paper towels and pick it up for inspection.   This causes the little Floofster to cock her head in the other direction, then reach out her paw with a “Want me to help your with that?” look.  There really are times when one thinks they do these things deliberately to mess with their humans.  Seems I forgot to finish this paragraph.  After carefully examining the fuzzy object, it appears that my companion has decided to take up felting sculpting and produce a baby mouse shaped hairball.  Maybe she just wants her work to be displayed in the house with her mommy’s.April In The Garden 2016 Lo Res051

And on another note.  I filled the bird feeder in the back yard with the lower half having just the wild bird seed, then topped it with the black sunflower seeds.  Just cuz it looked a bit cool.  They actually figured out how to pick  at the seeds so they could get to the sunflower seed and had them wiped out with only a tiny dent in the regular seed.  Another thing that surprised me was discovering the goldfinches also had a preference to the sunflower seeds.  Damn things are bigger than their beaks!  I am guessing I need to go get some more proper sugar for the hummingbird feeder this weekend, as they keep buzzing my window.  They will actually hover in front of it as if they are saying, “Hey!  Fill out damn feeder as well.”  I would, but I forgot to buy their sugar the last time I went shopping.

The weather is supposed to be nice this weekend, so I think I will go work on my fire pit, since no one wants to fly up to help me with it.  I’ll take the camera with me and see if I can get some good pictures of some of my feathered friends.

  1. Very nice photo of Miss Cassie. The exercise ball in the background adds a nice touch to the composition.
    Did you find a real mouse? Or a cat toy mouse?
    The hummimgbirds are beckoning me to refill their feeder too (empty for the same reason as yours). Fortunately the lavender and herbs and sweet clover is blooming which is keeping the hummers and several species of bees happy here.

     
  2. Or, did you find a hairball? Maybe a hairbal is better than a dead mouse. Unless it’s a cat toy mouse (best of all cuz no icky mess).

     
  3. BTW, like your little icon: bunny ears, dragon/alligator legs/tail, snowman-style stick hands, one-eyed, tongue out critter. Makes me smile whenever I see it.
