Lisa and Hero are excited, because this time the pigeon is a lot closer, perching on the shutter nearest the balcony. Samantha is also in this video, fast asleep to the right of Hero and Lisa’s chair.
As you all have seen in previous videos, we’ve got a few pigeons (always the same ones) that love to visit and perch on our bedroom window shutters, or somewhere else closeby. They are here for the scraps that the little wild birds are dropping from the feeders I have for them in the bushes (where the big birds can’t get to). Luckily, the little group has been the same since we moved here and hasn’t increased in size, otherwise there would be big trouble from neighbours and building management😳
So this will always be an ongoing series, since the kitties will never get bored with kitty-TV.
Hero was interested in the lens cap hanging of my camera. So I started playing a bit, which is why the video is shaky. I was hoping it would not turn out too crazy, but it does kind of make my feel seasick lol. Sorry. But maybe some will like it anyway.
Lisa and Hero playing with their catnip mouses! It’s the mousies a lovely friend from Germany makes in her spare time after work. I order a couple every few months. Her catnip and valerian root toys are awesome. I have never had the kitties react to catnip or valerian root so much as they do with hers. The toys last very well, despite the kitties really kicking them a lot. Her instagram is:
Every spring, a tiny group of pigeons comes back to hang around the bird feeders I hang onto the small tree near our balcony. The pigeons are too big to get to the feeders themselves, but they wait around for the food the small birds drop on the ground. They especially enjoy perching on our bedroom window shutters.
Yesterday, I opened the balcony door for the kitties when the sun came through the clouds for a little bit. Glad I did it at the right time! Because Hero and Lisa were excited to see a pigeon again! The small birds were chattering away really loud, probably because they were happy about some warmth from the sun as well.
