Old and New

My neighborhood has a wealth of wildlife.

First up, is my old friend Kiki; glad to see him up and about.

Kiki, an old friend
Old, as in age, and in years of knowing him!

 Then, I met two new friends:
Henry and Hermione!
He's not fierce at all...

Prim, although her tag reads Hermione
She is polydactyl on her front mitts!

 Henry and Prim's human and I had a delightful yammer, and all safety precautions were observed.

Both cats enjoy being petted, and they come when called!


But wait...there's more!

I met my first owl in the neighborhood, and managed to snap a poor photo.

See the screech owl just about in the center of this photo?
I've heard both Screech and Great Horned Owls calling in the evenings, but could not put eyes on them...until now!

Sorry, Trout Talking Tabbies, who seriously dislike all birds...

Now, this was a good day in the neighborhood!


Jigsaw Puzzle, and it's not easy!


  1. Lovely neighbours!
    There's not a lot of outdoor cats around here, and the few that are... let's just say Relic isn't a welcoming neighbour.

  2. Such fabulous neighbors, they are all terrific!

  3. What a wonderful neighborhood you live in! Beautiful cats, two different owls and I have not forgotten the morels in your backyard, lucky you!

  4. I love your furry feline friends and extra toes are always good.
    The screech owl was a real treat

  5. So many wonderful neighbors you have. We loved meeting all of them. They look very sweet and your new owl neighbor is terrific to see. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.

  6. You have such adorable and friendly neighbors! And the owl! That’s a great capture.
    I hope you all have a happy weekend xo

  7. You have nice friends in your neighbourhood.
    We have screech owls and barn owls here. The screech owl will insist on sitting on the phone pole outside our bedroom window and screeching away at 2 am.

  8. You have some great neighbors...including the owls!

  9. They are all so cute. Great owl shot too. And thank you for the puzzle. XO

  10. Great to see all the neighbors - old and new !

  11. Oh I get all excited about the owls.> I don't SEE them, Ihear them ! Good fun sighting for yOU!!!!! hi kitties.

  12. Tell your friends, both young and old, that we said hi.

  13. FAntastic pictures. Everyone is looking mighty good. What fun to see an owl. Have a great day.

  14. I'm glad Prim wanted to be petted: she looks ready to bolt.

    I saw the owl in the tree. I saw one late at night, silhouetted against the sky at the top of a telephone pole right above where I feed the outsider-cats. He hasn't been back in a couple of months, so hopefully he found pickings poor in my part of the world...

  15. OMD/OMC, what FABulous furiends!!!! And those owls are FABulous! I wish we had more around here!
    Have a FABulous week my furiends!

  16. Well it's so good to see you've made some new furriends, and that owly creature is awesome!

  17. Now that's a great walk! Our mom doesn't see much on her walks. MOL

  18. Love seeing sidewalk cats. We don't have sidewalks where I live. What a treat seeing an owl! I hear them sometimes but no sightings yet.

  19. How lovely! And I think you did a fine job photographing the owl. ~nods~ Be well!
