Friday cat blogging on Saturday

I love the way the cats avoid looking at each other. PuddyTat really wants to get up to her place on the kitchen windowsill but she faces the three grey boys. Little One is in the way.
Meanwhile Jellico has returned and is on the cathouse roof for the first time. Dude isn't happy about that.
Earlier PuddyTat wanted her place but Dudie was there. I opened the window which caused Dude to move away. PuddyTat immediately came thru the other box. There was a tense standoff with Dude obviously unhappy and PuddyTat stubbornly staying in place. Paws were raised but no fight. Then Jellico jumped up and PuddyTat left. The girls don't want anything to do with him. Eventually Jellico left and PT was on the windowsill with Dude and Little One in the two boxes. Now Dudie is in the box but the others are probably stalking the night creatures for protein supplements. Fun to watch while doing dishes.

A spring walk

I went for a walk this afternoon to check the progress of spring. I actually heard peepers but couldn't get the movie mode to work on the camera. It has been too cold for peepers or so I thought. Maybe they know something we don't?

Every year the turtles in the pond get a little larger.
The geese know me and head for the water when they see me. So far I haven't had to chase them off the yard this year.
The oak trees aren't willing to surrender last year's leaves yet.
I wish I could have caught on camera the little beaver who swam up to here then dived under.
S/he appeared just the other side of this dam but you can't see it.
A welcome bit of color in a mostly tan and grey world.
The Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) is growing new leaves already.
A ground squirrel watches me nervously.
A daffy will bloom tomorrow?
Meanwhile, Tim just enjoyed the sun.

Many thanks to a 4th grade English teacher in New Castle, PA.
