My stories of our three cat families, and other cat encounters
Tuesday, May 26, 2015
Wish I could snap a photo of how the sound of the wind blowing around millions (zillions!) of maple tree samaras (propeller seeds) makes both Angel and Chucky get moon eyes! The seeds are spinning and rustling and crackling everywhere, and with the windows open (yay!), the wind gusts and noises are a bit much for the kitties. The samaras pelt the side of the house, and the windows, and they are stuck in the edges of everything outside: the gutters, the sidewalk, even getting stuck on the cars parked in the driveway. They stick to our shoes, drop into pant cuffs, and end up everywhere.
Patty, sitting on my foot and samaras! That cat!
Patty and Sweetie don't seem to care, even when the propellers propel themselves right into their food bowls! And with the samaras, there is some sort of tree goo that has plopped little bits of sticky resin on the deck, upon which I sit to hang out with Patty and Sweetie. I've had some stick in my hair, on the seat of my jeans, and of course both cats have some in their fur. Spring has sprung!
