Cat-O-Lympics - Bird Watching

Today, Tanner will compete in the Bird Watching event hosted by The Furry Bambinos.
It starts out innocently enough, with Tanner watching a bird on the feeder outside the window.
He's intently staring wondering how he can get out there to catch that bird, while maintaining his high comfort needs by staying on the chair.
Well, this certainly gets him a bit closer to the bird. Notice the tail action in this shot. Please ignore the sagging belly and focus on the tocks and his long muscular legs.
Still staring with superb concentration that only an expert bird watcher can master.

Cuteness is an added bonus...
Since we are bird watching, here's a Carolina Blue Bird taking a bath on a hot summer day.


  1. I love, love, love the pic of Tanner over the arm of the armchair!

    That alone must win the bestest birdwatcher gold medal!

    Or at least the biggest AW factor!

    And the blue bird ought to be given a medal too - just for being pretty and blue! And from Carolina.


    Take care
