Post 597: Andy’s priorities…

If Dougy likes to stop by to be social, Andy usually stops by for another purpose. I never know until he settles down which it will be: social or kitty business.

Great! Looks like someone's going to come for a visit!

Andy made up his mind, though…

Looks like he might be more interested in the birds...

He still might stop for a little visit, though. Maybe…! What’s it gonna be, Andy? The guy who loves and feeds you…or..”The Birds”?!

I should have guessed! Birds trump people every day!

That’s it, folks. Andy has his priorities.

 

Post 378: Who’s that in the window, and why is my plant upside down on the chair?

The window by the dining room table is Andy’s preserve. That’s where he watches the rose-bush birds and people doing people things outside.

This morning, however, I heard cat chattering, something I haven’t heard Andy do, but Dougy does for any prey he sees and can’t get. The other day, he was chattering at a wasp!

Yes, today, Dougy was on the windowsill chattering, and, presumably (since Andy told me so and I didn’t bother to verify…!) Dougy is the kitty that knocked the plant off the windowsill trying to catch birds through the screen.

Bad boy!

Dougy stopped chattering long enough to check out what I was doing. He hates the flash on my camera, and suspected that was coming next!

The flash didn't go off, and Dougy soon went back to worrying the house sparrows through the window.

I put the plant back up on its perch before I took these photos, of course. Amazingly enough, it’s remained in place through three cats using that sill for bird watching. Today is the first mishap it’s suffered. Fortunately, it landed in a way that did little damage to it or its pot.

“Good potted plant! As much as I neglect you, you should be dead!” I thought.

Enough for today. Andy just stopped by to get his chin and whiskers rubbed.
