Sunny Saturday

What has Tom-Cat SO engrossed on a cold, frosty morning? 

The California Quail? 

A House Finch?

A Scrub Jay?

The deer?

A brush bunny?
Do you think they get an 'ice cream headache" from eating frost covered grass?

Nope, none of the above Tom-Cat says.

Nothing, but nothing can top Chipmunk Watching as the #1 rated feline pass-time. 

This guy lives behind the shop, and comes around my greenhouse, then down the walkway to the bird feeders in the backyard. 

I keep telling him, for his own health, he'd be better off living in our big woodpile.

As attentive as Tom-Cat is, Solomon becomes semi-hysterical at the sight of a chipmunk.

I'm doing my best in insure his survival.  I keep chanting to the cats, "No food with faces!"

Awwwww. I hope the little chipmunk survives his foolish behavior. I love chipmunks. Your pictures are wonderful!

That chipmunk brought the biggest smile to my face this morning. We have none left. Mr. Whiskers our neighbor's cat ate them all! He also depleted our goldfinches I am afraid. :(

Ok, your little chipmunk is really cute, but the ones that live in my yard are destructive little pests. My Dottie Dog gets hysterical over the little critters too. I'm going to have start telling her "No food with faces!" too!
