Cats, Birds, and Squirrels

My day is off to a lovely start. As I have mentioned, I’ve recently added catios to my home to give my cats the option of going outside in a safe environment (safe for them as well as the birds). I now have three catios with connecting tunnels and I will eventually have more as catios are addicting for both me and my cats. But more on that another day. 

I began my day with my morning shower (and for those who may not know, I have an outdoor shower) during which I got to watch Emmett (one of my two kittens) in my largest catio as he in turn watched a black-capped chickadee in the birdbath. Then both Emmett and I noticed a squirrel on a nearby fence. It was magical to think that all of us could safely enjoy each other on a gorgeous sunny morning.

A little later, after I’d feed all my fur friends, I saw that Foxy, my lovely black cat, was outside in the large catio and she was staring at me, meowing, and so I went out into the catio to spend time with her. Emmett soon joined us. Both Foxy and Emmett are snuggle bunnies, and the three of us had a lovely time, watching the activities of primarily birds in my back yard, and getting lots of petting time before I left them to enjoy their world as I tutored my first student of the day.
