Cat Entertainment On A Rainy Day

 It's a rainy day here in the Pacific Northwest and I decided to move my parakeet back into the sunroom. The parakeet enjoys the front porch all summer long .Since she is back indoors the cats took full advantage of her entertainment value. Miss Marple napped on top of the cage ,
 Blizzard across from the cage. He knows he can survey the bird AND Miss Marple from here.
 Looks like a cat stare-down , doesn't it ? But Miss Marple with all her claws intact is no match for a muscle-bound 16 pound cat, even if he is de-clawed. Blizzard dominates her and all our big dogs. Soon the stare-down is over and Miss Marple leaves. Blizzard is ready to...

 pounce ! What grace, what feline precision. He lands exactly where he planned.

In front of the parakeet cage. Betty, the parakeet isn't even startled. She knows what you & I know,
Smarty pants Blizzard can't open the cage door. She'd better watch out though, he can open all the bedroom doors and I see he is pondering the parakeet. Now I'd better go get a wire clip , I don't want my cat entertainment to turn into a cat snack .

I don't blame you, Kathy. With all the time these felines have one just may figure out a new entry. Great photos. What beautiful cats they are.

Blizzard is definitely scheming! The bird entertains the cats, and the cats entertain you. :-)

*LOL* Such a cute post, Kathy... I'm glad the critters all get along so well at your place, but like you said~ best not to give Blizzard any chance for easy pickings! *hahaha*

Too cute!
Today when I went to pick up duck feed I saw the shop cats curled up in plastic grocery bags. Apparently it's their favourite resting place - odd!

Kathy, a wire clip is a good idea; cats are clever creatures.
