An Owl Family Comes To Visit

I know this blog is supposed to be about my kitties but the most amazing thing happened over the weekend. A family of 5 eastern screech owls (2 parents and 3 babies) hung out in my neighbour’s backyard for two days! It was one of the best nature experiences I have ever had (the cats weren’t nearly as excited because I pretty much ignored them for 2 days!) Here are some photos

What an incredible once in a lifetime experience!

I promise the cats will be back next week!

Frodo Crashes The Party

AMARULA: Zulu you are too close to me. Go away. And you’re making a spectacle of yourself. Where’ s your dignity?

ZULU: Dignity goes out the window when I am playing in my catnip patch!

AMARULA: And now your tail is actually touching mine! Get hold of yourself man!

ZULU: You really are no fun!

AMARULA: Do you see what I have to put up with!? Could this day possibly get any worse?

FRODO: Hey are you guys having a catnip patch party without me?! Move over, I am coming in!

FRODO: Let’s get this party started!

ZULU: Yahoo!

AMARULA: Nooooo!
