Bass Terd Burds

Trout Talking Tabbies...do not read any further!
I purposely used Bass Terd Burds as today's title, to warn you away!

At my office, a pair of Canada Geese have chosen the front door are of one of our buildings to nest near.

We've added caution tape and signs telling everyone to go around!
In addition, I attended "Owl Fest" at Lake St. Clair Metropark last Saturday.  How cool to be within a few feet of these beautiful creatures.

Barred Owl

Eastern Screech Owl

Saw Whet Owl

Long Eared Owl

Peregrine Falcon
Needless to say, since we've had warmer temperatures in Michigan, all of the inside Eastside Cats are enjoying plenty of window time, watching the robins, wrens, and chickadees.  The 'O' Cats appear to be indifferent to birds, at least when I'm around.  

Speaking of The 'O' Cats:

The PO'M is not modest!
Paddy O'Malley has a big bald spot on his belly!  I have no idea what this is about; is he over grooming?  He has a couple of other bald spots, which look like chunks of his fur were pulled out.  He always seems itchy.  We may have to try new foods, to see if there is any change.  In spite of his missing fur, The PO'M is as lovey dovey as ever.



  1. I love the title of this post but I love all birds. They can be mean though. They all do such good work too.

    Paddy O'Malley is a handsome devil. I linked this post to Awww Mondays.

    Have a purrfect day. My best to your peeps. ♥

  2. Love those raptors, beautiful pictures! Hmm, I wonder what is causing the bald spots! Nevertheless, he looks handsome!

  3. Beautiful birds. PO'M could have flea allergy. Many years ago, I had a cat that had flea allergy and bare spots.

  4. We have a large flock of Canada Geese that live all year round on the marshes beside the river we overlook. Most of the year, every morning and every night at dusk they do a flyover honking all the way. P O'M is looking handsome.. Flynn used to over groom his belly furs away, then one day out of the blue he just stopped doing it and his fur grew back.

  5. Ooooh these owls are amazing!
    I was thinking about going to Owl sanctuary :) It could be really nice experience :)

  6. Oh, those burdies are amazin'! I do loves watchin' burdies, mostly hummingburds that bathe in my fountain, butts sometimes the falcons and hawks come down to say hello too!
    Oh, what a handsome kitteh! good thing it's gettin' warmer so his tummy isn't too cold.

  7. Canada Geese here surrendered their passports...they are now called NC Geese...they come and they never LEAVE!!
    Love the owls
    P.O. I hope your itchies go away soon I have itch sometimes and it is bothersome.
    Hugs Cecilia

  8. Those are beautiful birds ! We wonder why the PO'M is getting those bald spots. Purrs

  9. Oh those birds are amazing creatures. Are you sure your cat is not in pain? Our male had kidney stones and was pulling his fur out of his tummy in pain

  10. I love Raptors. My faves except for Hummingbirds. PO'M, ask your mom there if you use a flea deterrent..Advantage or Frontline? Robin had a flea allergy that didn't go away until they invented Program and finallyfor cats. After several years for dogs.

  11. Those owls are amazing! And geese...don't even tell us about them. We've got a whole gaggle in our backyard.

  12. Relic had a similar bald/itchy issue and it was just fleas, which were easy enough to clear up.

    Hope those geese don't bother you too much at work. They are the only Canadians that aren't always polite!

  13. I love those owls. I hope you get POM all sorted out.

  14. I’ll bet the owl fest was a real hoot!

  15. We giggled at your title ;)
    Those owls are pretty amazing and we are glad to be indoor cats.
    Julie goes through stages of excessive licking.The Vet did not seem too concerned as she was in good health otherwise. When on the porch, she chases mice so the Vet gave me some Milbemax incase of worms (and maybe that was why the licking) Katie has a good suggestion too.
    We had sunshine on sunday and now a snowstorm!!
    Purrs Georgia,Julie and JJ

  16. Beautiful owls. POM is a cutie, I want to snorgle that tummy. Could you slip 1/4 of a zyrtec in his food? We give Prancie that amount daily and her furs grew back.

  17. We wonder why those silly geese didn't find a quieter place to start a family. Cool owls! But we bet that screech owl's name is Caroline! MOL!

    Poor itchy PO'M. Fleas instead of food?

  18. Those geese are scary! LOL! The owls are fabulous and one of my favorites.

  19. Sorry you got a big nasty bird hanging out with you.

  20. Must be very interesting to get to see these birds up close! Owls are adorable and Peregrine Falcon is so beautiful!
    I hope Paddy's itchy will go away. xo
