Must be the season for baby animals. I'm having baby animal troubles.
First, there was this cute little baby mouse swimming in my pool. Well, he actually wasn't swimming. He was hanging onto the pool vacuum after falling in. He was quite cute. After rescuing him with the skimmer, I instructed him to not enter the house as I have many many cats and to not go swimming anymore. I'm keeping an eye out for him. You really shouldn't go swimming if can't climb out.
Then there's this baby bird. Well, I don't know for sure that it's a baby. But it's one itsy bitsy tiny bird. Another cute little thing. For some reason, (we are assuming it's territorial behavior), for days now, she's been attacking the window outside my office. The kitties were going nuts at first, watching and trying to attack her from this side of the window. I imagine they wanted to play with the bird. But they are indoor kitties, so they had to just admire her from the inside. But after days of this activity, even the kitties got bored, and went back to their favorite pasttime of sleeping. But you should hear the click, click, click as her little feet and little beak hit the glass.
Next there's this tiniest little baby bunny. Oh, how cute she is. She comes right up to the window. Again, my kitties were fascinated. I think I need to get them some new kitty toys. They showed some interest in wanting to play with this baby too. Anyway, this bunny is eating my plants and flowers. I saw her! But I don't think her eating my vegetation is good for the garden.
Did I mention the ants that had the gall to enter my house? I saw my kitty Fox picking them up one by one with her paw and tasting them. My other kitty Dana was content lying in their ant trail. And yet another kitty Spooky was fascinated with their speed. I really do think I need to buy more kitty toys.
I don't think I should tell you what happened to the mice that dared to enter my attic last week. Three blind mice, three blind mice, see how they ... ooops. Never mind. We won't talk about the attic mice.
Well, I'm off to feed the regal kitties. My little darlings demand my presence. Though I am ignored on a routine basis.
