Watching Cat TV
Libby's enjoying a late Christmas present...a window seat to the Bird Channel!
With seven inches of snow, topped off with ice, the cardinals and finches have rediscovered our feeders.
It's great entertainment for a cat-- and for us.
Watching them hurry in, so hungry.
Or just nibble quietly.
I love to see them feed each other.
It reminds me what my friends (like you) do for me.
Equip me to keep going.
Help me puff up my feathers against the cold, with energy in reserve to enjoy--and see--the wonders around me.
The elegance of the ordinary birds
As well as the flashier ones.
We all need nourishment for the journey.
You know, all these redbirds remind me of a book I haven't reread in a while.
Do you know it? It's one of my favorites.
Perfect to read on a snowy afternoon like this one.
Libby, I'll leave you to the window.
Don't worry about the birds, folks. Libby's an inside cat for the time being, and besides, some of those fellas look like they could take her, should she make a surprise appearance.
Have a great Tuesday, y'all!
PS. Thanks to Todd for all these great photos!
