Over the last few weeks we have twice had a pheasant visit us in the backyard. They are quite common in the fields here, but no one has ever seen on actually in the neighborhood before.

Yesterday he came right up to the backdoor and looked in. Kitty saw him and absolutely could not understand why I didn't let her out to go get him. Those birds are big!

I just watched an episode of "Nurse Jackie". A guy came into the emergency room with cuts and scratchs on his scrotum. Turns out he was scrubbing his bathtub in the nude. While hanging over the tub, his cat came up behind and saw a little pink, hairy mouse swaying back and forth and pounced. I wonder if this was based on a true story.

nice pic red!

Susan, I like your story. Reminds me of one in our backyard, which sees a lot of deer traffic. A couple summers ago there were a pair of little fawns walking around the yard. Our cat, SweetPea, was lying in the dirt next to the back office in the sun, when one of the curious little fawns kept inching closer and closer to her. We were watching from the other side of the yard, hoping that Pea wouldn't swipe her claws at the little nose as the fawn cautiously came right up and sniffed her. She didn't move, but just strained her head back and looked indignant as only a cat can.
 
Great picture and sweet story.

I have the mother of all colds, and at one point had a sneezing fit. Now, if there's one thing I do well, it is sneeze. Kitty looked at me like, What was THAT?

Otherwise she is very good about taking a nap with my on the sofa and keeping me warm.

Just hanging out and killing time relaxing on the forum tonight....after a great two hour ride with friends today. I've been perusing this thread and am amazed at how many members are cat people! I really enjoyed the Moscow Cat Theatre, the multiple pix, etc....read some interesting posts. I also live above 5000 ft, have a brother who lives near one cat lover (tustin) ....amazing it really is a small world and cat people have much in common! Thanks for all the fun posts.
cheers

Lots of snow around here...

wow tough cat! my cat hates post-holing...it is now frigid and she is under a window bench upstairs next to a heater...after going out for 10 minutes
 
We finally moved my computer from the living room to my office. At first Kitty hated it, as she had to walk soooooo far to let me know she was dying of starvation.

I have my desk at the window, and she has now discovered she can sit in my inbox and look out the window. Which is what she is doing right now.

Had one of these in the yard this morning. Not my pic but this very closely resembles exactly what I saw.

Our 2 cats don't like change much. Like when we go away for a few days or more, the extra bowls of food and water come out. Then the luggage. They get curious. Or is it they know what's coming and know they'll be able to get up on the kitchen counter all they want.

So is that your cat in your avatar, Susan?

I love the big cats! ..and Susan what a cute tortoiseshell...

Why is it that whenever the suitcases/duffels come out that a cat immediately knows that something is up....:)

my tabby, Sweetpea... she hates it when we are gone...cats do not like change at all do they. We had to put up this 'fake Sweetpea' because whenever our friends come to feed her when we are gone, they never see her..she hides
