Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  Its nice that the deck an rails are now clear of snow and even much of the yard is bare again too.  Ayla an I have been watchin the finch feeders hanging from the deck real close. 
There are just ALLUS birdies there...
Ecept when we get too close an they all fly away.   Its kinna hard ta hide on a bare deck!
But then this one birdie just STAYED there even with Ayla pacin back an forth above it (and oh wow was HER tail a'twitchin), and with ME tryin ta squeeze between the small posts.
I just COULD NOT quite reach that birdie, my outstretched paw just INCHES away, an it STILL wouldnt leave.  
Then I suddenly heard TBT laffin about the whole situation an turned ta look.  "Uh oh, Ayla, we're bein watched"!
I thought about it fer a minnit, then decided iffen he hadnt stopped us, it must be OK.
So I went back ta tryin ta squeeze through those small posts an lookin fer some other way ta get at it.
But TBT finally called us in fer lunch.  Well, the birdie was ecitin, but you know what they say; "A birdie inna bowl is worth 2 at the feeder".  We went in an ate.
Iffen ya look real close at the bottom right of the feeder, ya can just see the birdie sittin there ignorin us...

We'd be highly insulted that the bird was ignoring us. Surely it should have been quaking in its feathers.

Sorry, but OMC, those photos of Marley crack me up. Priceless. :-D

Thar bird was very brave, or maybe very foolish to taunt you like that. You both had him covered from all angles.

That is so very frustrating, but you handled it well!!!

Your folks need to build you a good hiding spot.

That bird's bravery is amazing. Or perhaps it's blind and didn't realise you were there? How about one of you making a glorious leap from the deck on to the bird feeder next time?

I swearsie that they know you are right there, but can't reach them, so they sit there and ignore you!

With all that snow, you must be getting lots of bird feeder action. Score!

Mes would say that is one Cheeky Chickadee (or what ever birdie it is)
And Don't forgets, over at my blog Tuesday is the Finishing the Sentence Game for a personal cartoon for the winner!!
Comes and makes your guess!

That silly bird. He must know distance really well to have stayed there that whole time. Hope your food was bird-flavored!

That was one brave birdie.

Maybe he wasn't ignoring you.. maybe he has a death wish and you disappointed him by not being able to reach!

MeezerMews&FrecklesWoofs said...

That was some hungry finch to ignore you kitties!

Don't get stuck in the rails, Marley, Yikes!

You two need a net!

And thumbs...

Angel Prancer Pie said...

Yep, you definitely were found out!
We would have gone in for dinner, too. It's much easier than catching your food!

All we can say is that is one brave (or hungry) birdie.
