Our entry for the Bird & Squirrel Watching competition


Thanks to the Furry Bambinos for hosting this competition! At our old house, we had lots of things to watch: birds, squirrels, raccoons, opossums, dogs, and the other cats. So here's some pictures of us looking at them, and some of them looking at us.


Carbon (l) and Rori (r) squirrel-watching


Here's who we were watching! Yep, he's eating the ferals' kitty food.


Rori watching and growling at the dogs in the neighbor's front yard.


Little Bit (l) and Starla (r) looking at each other. View from out the same window as the top picture.


Our raccoon friend, who later brought her three babies to eat and play on the porch.


Baby Possum, whose mommy brought him when he was kitten-sized. He came back as an adult (as pictured) to eat almost every night.

The raccoons and possums were very polite and always let the feral cats eat first. They would watch us, and watch our humans, but we always told them that it was just fine for them to eat the food. We'd rather they ate that than stinky old garbage! We loved the outside friends, and miss them, but now we've got a whole new backyard to watch!
