Bandit vs. The Deer

Here we can see Bandit pretending to hide behind the bird bath, eyeing up the deer. She has been spotted chasing them across the garden on previous occasions, but most of the time observation and mild stalking seems to be the order of the day.

Running water is more tasty

They have been drinking from the bathroom sink tap for a couple of months now. They love it. We finally relented and got them a drinking fountain of their own, which they also love, but tap water remains fair game...

Cat Infestation

And yes, I know my Jeep needs a wash. Shame I couldn't get them to lick it clean while they were there.

Roof Cat on the wrong side of the window

We have each other well trained, however. I went up to the balcony to let her in, and she appeared as I opened the door.

Many Deer

There's at least three distinct deer families that live around the subdivision here. They are usually to be spotted wandering around at any time of day or night. Each family usually contains around six to eight individuals. They often sleep on our front lawn; we have to watch out for them if we drive home late at night.

Today I drove home and found an entire squadron of them hanging around the driveway. I guess this is two familes together. They moved off as I approached and departed across the neighbour's front garden. I had just enough time to grab my phone and record the video below. Pretty cool to see so many together.

Smokey being cute

Right before he flew into Insane Attack Mode and caught a sparrow in our sun room. I got it off him, put it in the hanging basket and it was gone a couple of hours later. Injured or not, I cannot say.

However, I do love the way Smokey sits like this, with his long legs all stretched out :-)

Bandit discovers she can sit on, and lick, ice

But then it gets all melty and slippery and it's not the best way to get a drink, and then Smokey attacks...

Ew, it's cold!

We don't want to go outside, we want to stay in the warm!

Yup, it's 38F/4C outside right now; misty and damp. They have been outside, thought better of it and gone back to bed.
