Photohunters: Funny


We've been having a cold snap and I've gotten into this routine of hearing the birds remind me that I need to thaw out the bird baths and out I go.

On Thursday I went to a big effort to get some nice warm fresh water out and it wasn't easy because it took a while to thaw and remove the ice. I couldn't understand why there weren't any birds taking advantage of the bird bath like they have done each time I've thawed it.

I looked around and spotted my neighbor's cat crouched in a dry spot on the deck. I walked out and said, you are NOT funny, I am NOT amused, go home RIGHT now. The cat just stared at me so I took its picture and then started clapping my hands. The cat left and the birds returned.

Cats can be quite funny creatures I featured one in my entry this week too. :)

the cat's sudden presence must have startled those birds away.

I love this! The bird in the first photo does look like he's chewing you out. And the expression on the cat's face is very funny.

Going to "warm" up to 50 degrees this weekend...woo hoo! Have a good one.

The cat is not too pleased at you taking its picture. It doesn't think it's funny to be chased away. haha...

I love your funny take on the theme.

A heated bird bath keeps the water at about 40 degrees so it doesn't have to be really warm. Maybe the cat needs a little spritz to learn to stay away....

Funny -- the cat's expression makes me thing of Queen Victoria's "We are not amused" quote! :D

Not funny indeed. She looks very defiant, must have some Kuwaiti Genes in her ;-)
When I walk the dogs here, many cats simply stay where they are, totally not caring for the dogs and daring them to attack :-)

I am sure that the cat (which is gorgeous BTW) appreciated all of your efforts! *smile*

Loved this! It is 5 minutes to 11 and I am waiting for our cat's face to appear at the patio door - wanting to be let in! Oh the eyes! lol!

mrsnesbitt said...

She is in! lol!
