A Cat's Life!

What can be sooooo interesting to keep Shibby staring out the window for hours? Well, I have to admit that I, too, could watch the bird feeder for hours. Here are a few critters out there today:

I really need to get a bird book to identify all the pretty birds that come to visit our feeder. I think this is a sparrow?

And this is one of our bushy-tailed grey squirrels. We give them Peanuts and they are happy.And this is poor little Scrappy. He SHOULD look like the pretty grey squirrel above, but apparently the other animals hate him because he is totally beat up. He has no tail and he is covered with boo-boos. Chris wants to kill him to put him out of his misery, but I won't let him. Poor little squirrel.

Hiya, Viv!
That little bird is an American Robin. We had a very beat up squirrel in our yard this winter. He seems to be recovering, and yours might too. but Nature will take it's course one way or another.
