Wildlife, Up Close & Personal

While the mom was away in Colorado cavorting with other cats, she also got some pretty great shots of wildlife. We (grudgingly) gave her a second day to share some of the cool closeups she managed to capture. 

Not that she's captured any forgiveness for said cavorting from any of us. 
Just meowin'.




Our mom loves closeups, especially of nature. And cats.
(we made her put that last part in, but we still don't forgive her)



Did you know hummingbird wings can beat up to 80 times a second?



They're also the only bird that can truly fly backwards.

So how long do you think we can milk this abandonment thing?

So far, we've received a whole huge bag of bonito flakes, two extra vacation days, a grooming session (one per cat; sorry, no substitutes), and prime wand toy time.

Maybe we should hold out for something big, like a new deluxe cat tree. Or our own catio.

Thoughts?


Oh look. Maxwell's making his opinion clear ... even in his sleep.

  3. Great photos but still she WAS cavorting with other cats so I think a nice catio is the best way to ask for forgiveness. LOL!
