Watching Cat TV

I was giving JuneBug a snuggle when she hopped up next to me near the bedroom window and was curious when she seemed hyperfocused since anymore the kitties seem to take the constant viewing of birds and squirrels in stride lately since they get so much of it at the new place.

I looked to see what had her attention and laughed. There was a blue jay on a branch of one of the several spindly trees and there was a squirrel right below it. When the blue jay would hop to another branch or tree next to it, the squirrel was following! On and on it went, hop, scamper, hop scamper. It was clear they were actually playing with each other. The squirrel seemed to almost lose interest so the blue jay chirped and after a moment a second blue jay came along and the game was on! The birds teased the squirrel and the squirrel hopped and leapt around them. They were having a grand old time.

By that point, JonJon hopped up to find out what was going on and I watched with them for a good five minutes before I gave up my spot at the window so they could have the best Cat TV viewing since they're not interested in Mommy's TV.

It sounds a great programme. Thanks for sharing. (And that icon!)

That sounds like a great CAT-TV program!

Moonstone loves the Squirrel Channel (even though he can't catch and eat them anymore) and it is the only time he will come when called without food. Not sure what the neighbors think of my yelling "Moon! Moon! Squirrel! Squueerrill!", but it gets Moon running to the patio doors every time.

LOL I call to my kitties too when I see something outside. They don't always come but it's nice when they do.

If JuneBug's in the bedroom, she will generally come to the living room if I call for her and she makes chirpy little "mow! mow!" noises
