This side of the Catio faces the corner of the yard we can see from the Lotus. The bird-O-vision is super fantastic out here! In the winter Daddy puts out seeds for the birds for their dinner and our entertainment. And yes, we have gotten some birds! CC brought in a live Mourning Dove a last winter...you should've seen Mommy & Daddy chase him to get it loose! CC ran out to the Catio and let go, then Sweet Pea got him and lost him, and THEN Maui caught him! Mommy grabbed Maui and got the Dove (he was OK) and let him go...we were really MAD but we'll get another one, someday.
There's other good hunting around here...we get lizards, mousies, and once we even caught a snake! It was a baby sidewinder rattlesnake, about as big as a pencil. Naturally Mommy & Daddy just about had heart attcks when they saw the snake...but we are fast and mighty hunters and nobody was bitten. In case you're wondering, the snake got away. Rats!
And we catch these:
The last picture is the Catio before it was the Catio! You can see The Baby's cage where she used to hang out and not get pestered by Johnson. This is how it looked when Rupert, the Twins and Sweet Pea showed up. We have a lot more greenery in the back now. Daddy loves to garden and he's always improving the view for us.
