This week has been spent doing a lot of watching Monster in the Catio. Spring is arriving, and so there is more wildlife out and about. Or, at least, what passes for wildlife in suburbia. Squirrels going after the suet feeder, birds going after any dropped seeds, and an appearance of our resident bunny (after I was certain it had vanished). Monster has been watching, very attentively, and doing some conversing with the birds (I tried to get a video of him talking to the crows, but he was too quiet). It’s been great entertainment for me!

What have you and your pets been up to?

  1. The photo of cat and squirrel reminds me so much of my childhood. There were ten very tall, very old cottonwood trees surrounding our house, and the squirrels would come down to beg at the back picture windows for leftover pancakes while we were at breakfast. The cats, indoors, would watch so intently, wishing to be let outside. (The cats were never fast enough for squirrel chasing. LOL)

    I also am looking around me for indications of spring, now that the late snowfall has ended.


  2. Work, thankfully I guess, is not letting up so we’re staying busy, but lacking the occasional distraction of not being able to wander the isles for normal shopping, such things are being planned out and are a lot less entertaining. Due to allergies, we don’t have pets, but the small lizards who live behind the brick flower garden – they and I are getting to be close friends. I move slowly and give them a wide, social distance buffer of space so as to not send them scampering into hiding. They have largely gotten used to my presence and a couple of the larger ones will run almost within reach, stop and look at me, wondering – what – what does a lizard think about such meetings? In these SIP times, it seems that I sometimes have time to contemplate such things. It’s soothing somehow.
