The Owl and The Pussy Cat (s)





Spending a considerably restful day at home on Sunday, I peeked out onto the back porch to see if I had left any kitties out there for too long, before remembering that they were actually on the 2nd floor balcony enjoying some sunshine.  

To my surprise...at the window by the back door I saw the back of the head of what appeared to be an OWL!  I rushed to the dining room window and sure enough a little owl was perched on the porch rail enjoying the sunshine.  Aren't owls nocturnal?  I thought they hid somewhere during the day.  I tried to get a pic thru the window, but because of glare, the screen and dirt (need to wash windows), I couldn't get a good shot.  I quietly went out the front door and snuck (sneaked?) around the house to get as close as I dared without him flying away.  The funny thing was that then, I realized that Lucy was watching the owl too!  It was all too cute!  Oh, did I mention that Possum could have cared less???

O country living!

I got on the net to see what kind of owl he is and he's called a Long eared Owl!  I hope he lives nearby and will visit us again real soon.  I will be watching.  I'm Pretty sure Lucy will too!

Very funny...you got a good shot of him! It would be funny to see what the kitties would do if they met!

How wonderful! The scary thing, tho, is that he looks big enough to take off with some of the cats in the neighborhood, at least the smaller ones! Maybe you won't have very many to neuter!
