Sundae’s BFF (Best Feathered Friend)

We often hear of animals making friends with other species that are normally thought of as their enemies.

I think we have a similar situation right here at our house.

One of our hummingbird feeders is in front of Sundae’s window seat, and she often lets me know that one is there by “chattering” at it through the window.

Normally, when that’s the case, I glance over at the window, and Sundae is in “alert” mode, as you would expect of a cat who’s looking at potential (if impossible) prey.

Yesterday morning, however, I heard her chatter, and glanced over a few minutes later to see her acting cute, as if she were flirting with a new friend.

I ask you: is this the face of a predator?

Now she’s even turned her back on the enemy!

Seriously, Sundae? For goodness sakes, that’s a bird, and you’re a cat.

Sundae: “What?

“That cute little hummie is my friend.  Case closed.”

Enough said, Sundae.

Random Five Friday

Another week has come to an end, and with it, five random thoughts:

1.) We had a cold front breeze through our area Wednesday evening. I was outside, taking pictures of the sunset. I think we had four drops of rain, and a rainbow!

2.) This from Motor Man regarding Sundae’s post on Wednesday: “The law firm of Dewey, Cheatham and Howe” representing Sundae, announced that a flea bargain has been made in this case.” (I can hear the groans from here….)

3.) Last year, my friend, Linda, gave me a white hydrangea for my birthday. I was concerned about it surviving the winter. Not only did it survive, but it’s covered in blooms. Thanks again, Linda!

4.) My hummingbird feeder has been up for about 10 days, and Wednesday, I spotted the first one of the season.  Last year was my first time to feed the hummingbirds, and I’d forgotten what a thrill it is to see those tiny beauties. I’m glad they’re back.

5.) Motor Man and I had dinner with friends last night. Laughter was involved.
