Bird Watching (December 9, 2010)

My cats are obsessed with windows, and they're particularly riveted when squirrels, birds, or other moving objects are within the field of vision provided by the glass sliding door that opens on to the back deck. Distance doesn't seem to be much of a factor: if it moves, especially if it moves and looks like another animal, they're at the window in a trice (unless they're in a deep sleep).

In this picture Mr. Darcy's attention is locked on the large flock of birds perched in the trees that stand on either side of the driveway. The birds were making quite a bit of flustered, twittery noise, so of course my cats were going wild over the scene, with their little feet up against the glass and chattering frustratedly to themselves.
