14Nov23: morning is “RAWR the sparrows” time…

The blind cord was in the way.

I moved it, then…

…Andy noticed the blind cord was moving back and forth. Andy forgot he was “hunting sparrows” for the moment!

He sniffed it, then went back to Priority One, sparrows! The morning “RAWR the sparrows” time was back on!


Lavinia Ross sent me photos of the Salmon Brook Farms kitties, which is much appreciated since she has had to cut back of blogging. Here’s Wynken!

Awwww! Nod is looking as sweet as ever!

Silkie and Marcus know a good window when there is one! 

Thank you, Lavinia, for the photos of the Salmon Brook Farms kitties. I know I’m not the only one who misses your blog posts but appreciate that you have good reasons to cut back. 


Earlier, before “RAWR the sparrows” time, Andy tried to catch a gnat on the television screen.

    • Do you have habitat, like berry bushes near your cat windows or trees in your yard that produce sees or fruit appealing to birds? Water is very attractive to birds as is a feeding station, though feeding birds gets messy.

      • No. We’re not allowed a bird feeder on our balcony. Our building has a rule book but it’s not too bad. We do want to buy some plants for pollinators and the fur kids would love them BUT we kill plants. We try hard and we still kill them. It’s hilarious how much we research plants. I think I can handle a succulent. I had one as a kid until my cats ate too much of it. We did get 2 African violets and forgot what other plant. So far they’re still alive. It’s been 2 months. Ours record is 5. If they’re alive by spring, maybe we’ll get some pollinating plants for the balcony!

        • LOL! I found kalanchoes to be negligence-tolerant. The don’t require a lot of care, let you know it’s time to water by dropping leaves, and the blossoms are small and pretty. I have one in my kitchen window that I always forget to tend to, yet it faithfully puts out new growth and pretty salmon-colored flowers every winter. (Yes, when it drops leaves, I water it, and the leafless stems put out new leaves!)

      • I think it, WP, gives that identification to anyone commenting without a WP account. Another friend periodically comments and gets identified that way, too. She doesn’t have a WP account. Anyway, thanks for identifying yourself so I know it’s you, not my other friend. I think your best bet is to comment on my Facebook page. That rigmarole you have to go through to comment on my WP page is tedious, I know!

  1. rather the sparrows outside than the cord next to you? or how that old saying goes… great to hear from lavinia… I have some guitar chords in my head always if I think about the salmonbrook farm ;O)

    • Andy waves a paw back! He is happy to be a solo kitty since Dougy was Mr. Mean to him when Andy made the mistake of getting near to any of Dougy’s territories. I miss him anyway. He was a good kitty most of the time, and quite a comedian!

  2. Andy looked grand as he made his RAWR delivery to the sparrows! Those are beautiful pictures of the Salmon Brook Farms kitties! I really miss Lavinia’s posts, but I also understand what it’s like to have other things that need tending to.
