new doodle – watching…
Our kitties both like to hang out in the windows and watch the birds… and the birds seem to know that the cats can’t reach them because they keep chirping in a taunting kind of way. No end of entertainment – better than tv!
I can’t resist linking this kitties playing soccer video link in the spirit of the World Cup and all. The reflexes on that goal tender are pretty amazing – even when she scores on herself! – very cute.

The cat of simple colours waits
for birds to land upon her plate
although the screen is in the way
she’ll wait and wait, she has all day!
The birds in cloaks of feathers fine
tweet and twitter, stealing twine
for nests where chicks will grow and thrive
to keep the cycle long alive.
For cats will hunt and birds will flit
in nature’s dance that’s ever lit
by suns and moons up in the sky
where off the little birds will fly
while cats find places by the fire
or to their owner’s beds retire
to cuddle up and get their rest
and dream of birdies in their nests
