Happy Furry/Feathery Friday

I ended up finding the birds very active around my window feeder today and it was probably due to the St. Patrick’s snow storm hitting us. So, I decided to capture some wonderful up close videos of the birds interacting together. I am very excited to add these to the blog but I first want to figure out how to make them educational (so they should be posted soon)!! I began to review them on the computer and something wonderful happened (and I quickly grab my camera)!

Although this was a test with my cats self control; the real birds outside quickly refocused their attention elsewhere. Do note that I edited out the 5 minutes of Phoebe studying the screen and showed you the two cat’s breaking points. It was very cute to watch.

Happy Furry and Feathery Friday everyone.

  3. Oh..My..Goodness. This is perhaps one of the best videos I’ve seen. I’m so glad you were able to move quickly and get them on video, Tom! Thank you! I saw one of your cats head tilt and they are so intent and smart, aren’t they? This reminds me of my cats being vigilant at the fish tank. Great show!

    They liked the show on your monitor, but they knew the real thing. LOL

  5. Cats are very vigilant until something else distracts them. Sometimes it’s their own paw or an imaginary friend. They are delightful to watch. Your two are beauties.
