A Slow News Day?


It's the end of April, must be a slow news day as with the posting of this image, the drawing board seems to be clear for the moment, nothing in progress right now so . . . there are a couple of neighboring resident kitties who live within prowling distance of my back yard. Lately, this one in particular has been enjoying 'hanging out' near a line of, well for want of a better description . . . overgrown/needing to be thinned/weed infested undergrowth along my property line. It seems to enjoy 'stalking' and hunting for mice/chipmunks or whatever little creatures seem to catch its attention. It sits for hours on end, just concentrating on the greenery, waiting for some sign of movement to pounce. So far, I've not caught it with any captured prey, but it sure is persistent! Anyway, while waiting for a pot of water to boil for tea the other day, I stood at the back kitchen bay window and watched as the little guy/gal padded across my backyard and took up a nice, comfy laying spot beneath one of my rubber geese. It seemed so at home, the two 'buddies' just hanging out, relaxing and catching up on old news. So, who could resist taking a picture? On this slow news day, here is something to give you a chuckle.

Great photo. Cats could certainly teach us a thing or two about patience :-)
