The Evil Hummerburd Returneth

Kitties!

The Baby here, and wowie-kazowie do I have a story for YOU!
Grab a few kibbles and some cat sip and pull up a bed--it's a long one.
So, I was noodling around Outside the other morning...

...just checking out the area to make sure everything was in order. 
Henry's Hut was stocked, so after having a nibble and a freestyle pee in the dirt...

...I settled in my regular spot under the Mexican Honeysuckle. 
I hang out here in the mornings, it's a nice quiet spot.

Until it isn't.
The Evil Hummer started shouting at me!
Do you see him up on the left in the star jasmine?

He sure had a foul mouth.
I can' believe his kisses his wife with that beak.

Naturally, I couldn't let that go--I told him off BIG time! 
I told him "Eck eck eck eck eck"!!
And you all know what THAT means.

Unfortunately, so did he...
...and he took exception to my remarks!

He decided to dive bomb me, the cheeky bugger.
And was he ever FAST, darting all over.

Kitties, you might not know this, but Hummers are Evil. 
They get right up in your face and taunt you and tease you and... 

...they ATTACK you! 
It's pretty traumatic.

In fact, he Ruined my Good Time.
I had to go sit under the Red Bench to escape him, for Cod's sake.

Kitties, do you know where I can get a net?
And a Cannon?
tweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!
(translation:  "heh heh")


Happy Thursday!

  1. Yes, The Baby, I know where you can get what you need to deal with the evil hummer. I can paw at my mom's purse and get her credit card...and my paws are infamous for working a keyboard. Online order was made for us kitties!

  2. Pisi and Squeak also said "eck eck eck eck" when they saw that evil hummer. And -- you are one gorgeous cat! Lovin' those green eyes.

  3. He who laughs last, laughs best. Still. My money's on The Baby. Revenge is a dish best served cold.

  4. Why didn't you smack some manners into that cheeky little bird?

  5. We cannot believe you've gone public with this! You got your butt thwacked by a hummer! He was ducking and diving and humming and flying rings round you - you have to do something (maybe try using your paws to thwack him). Hang on, Äiti is saying something about how fast they are - think Finnish mosquito only with a million times the body weight....). Okay, that is scary. Maybe you are forgiven. But you HAVE to do something - he is a cheeky bugger indeed. If you like I can send the Burmese butterballs over as they are bound to be faster!

  6. Wow, what fantastic pictures!!!! Maybe the hummer has a nest nearby and didn't want the Baby around her babies.

  7. You shoulda just jump on him Baby. He is furry cheeky - that bird!

  8. We think that Hummer was just getting closer to admire your beauty The Baby! Your purrsonal photographer got some great photos of the whole meeting!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Wow, The Baby, I can't believe how nervy that bird was, getting all close like that.

    You showed remarkable restraint. Although...there's not much to those tiny things. Kinda like eating a fly, I'd imagine.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Ha!! Awesome action shots of the evil hummingbird! Poor Baby, being tormented by the eensy birdy. On the plus side, it's so little that it probably wouldn't be worth the energy to catch it!

    ReplyDelete
  11. We didn't know hummers go be so skeery! He's got it comin, fur sure. Get him good, Baby! xoxo

  15. Next time you be ready and make sure you kick his birdie tail! You have the patience of a saint I tell you:)

    ReplyDelete
  16. We have seen our hummers dive bomb each other but never a kitty! Your humans got some fantastic pictures there. Glad you are safe!

    ReplyDelete
  17. LOL! Years ago, I was dive-bombed by a hummer protecting its nest, conveniently located in my rose bush! It was like getting stabbed in the head by a pin - quickly and repeatedly.

    The pain is made worse by the fact that you can't really see what is doing it to you since the bird flies quickly behind you when you look up.

    I had to leave the area and kind of sneak up on it to learn it had been a hummer attacking me. It was all pretty traumatic.

    I eventually resorted to wearing a hard hat in the garden until the baby hummers were reared. That part was fun. I got to watch the parents teaching the chicks to fly.

  18. Bad bird, hope you managed to get over your attach. Hugs Anesha :)

  19. I think birds in general are kind of an obnoxious critter - but that one in particular is pure evil.

    Best of Luck to you in your quest for revenge on that cheeky little bugger.

    pawhugs, max

  22. What an evil little devil! Your ooman got some amazing photo shots. I have a cannon your can borrow, so I'll bring it over and we can see if we can catch him - team effort.

  23. Awwwww the Baby!! Me and Charlie would like to think the beautiful Hummingbird was in a very playful mood and needed some fun! LOL! You did very well to ignore him though! We are most impressed at these pics too - amazing shots of such a tiny super fast bird!! Take care

  25. Oh my ~ who knew that hummingbirds could be so evil to sweet kitties! They look so small and innocent. I guess it's true that it's always the innocent looking ones you have to be scared of. Ha!

  26. The hummers fuss at Mom while she is trying her best to get them some fresh food out. To be so tiny, they sure can get loud!!

  27. Oh, you CAN'T let a tiny bird get the better of you, The Baby! That's just not right, goes against Nature! (Okay, so we've never been dive-bombed by a hummingbird, but really...! They're TINY!) :-P

    ReplyDelete
  28. A cat-attacking hummingbird? Wow!

    Ahem.... The Baby? Would you like to move in with us? No hummingbirds in Europe...

    Purrs,

  40. Well you certainly don't look amused sitting under your red bench!! I'm from Britain though so I must admit I was oohing and aahing at the hummingbird... we don't have them over here!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh my...that Evil Hummer has a death wish or something? What an annoying little fella. Why didn't you whap him?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh wow that sure was an evil bird. But I have to say what great action shots your mum got. No wonder you had to take cover. Could you not swat that evil bird with your paw. Mind though because that birds beak has a very evil looking beak.. HUgs GJ xx

    ReplyDelete
  43. OH MY CATS how disrespectful he was to you sitting there minding your own business....don't take it personal Baby...the hummers we have here even do that evil dive bomb dance to each other. They are very territorial.
    Hugs Madi

  44. Oh COD, that was so exciting. That hammer has your number. Those aren't as bad an the mocking birds we have here. They actually peck us. But the hammers do dive bomb really badly. Glad you survived. Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  45. True nuf! Those little buggers have beaks that can take out your eyeballs! They guard the flowers with such vehemence it's pawsitively scary! We steer clear of them all the time. Good thing you gotta outta there with yer furs still on.

  46. What a mean little bird! We would think he'd understand what you meant when you said, "Eck Eck Eck." Maybe they don't understand kitteh-ese. Sorry he ruined your good time, Baby. :(

    ReplyDelete
  47. I did not know that there were evil hummers, they look so cute...and bite size!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I never knew it before, but now I realize those hummers are very, very BAD birds!

    ReplyDelete
  49. We never realised just how evil such a small bird could be. Bide your time The Baby. He will regret messing with you.

    ReplyDelete
  50. wow the NERVE of that hummer! I never knew that about them either but I am sure glad you warned us!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Please tell your Mommy that these photos are amazing and totally made my day. As for you, give it up. You will never outwit the hummer!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love allllllll photos! This sequence are amazing and beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  53. You know what, The Baby? I think you are just too well-fed to bother with something that's barely a mouthful.

    But I think he deserved a swat, just for the disrespect.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Dear Cod I have the same thing going on over here!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Baby, how bad mr hummer attacked you. We saw one fly really close to mum once when she was standing by their feeder. She ducked.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Our Granny has bunches of Hummers and they are the fightinest birdies around! Its like our Julie, just cause they're cute, doesn't mean they nice! (And the girl ones are worse than the boy ones - like Julie)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Baby, Baby, Baby. All you have to do is recruit a few of the gang, set up your game plan, and wait for his return. If four of you felines can't take care of one little hummer, however sly and crafty, you may want to ask mom not to document it with her beautiful pictures. I have every confidence that you and a few of the boys can take care of one little birdie. Happy hunting.

  58. Holy canoli! We never knew hummers could be so vishus!! Michigan Hummers aren't like that at all!!

    ReplyDelete

  60. Evil is right! But on the bright side, all of the colors in these pictures are stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  61. What amazing shots! I actually love the evil hummers. I had no idea they were so aggressive. I thought they were docile creatures. Now I know to be prepared!

    ReplyDelete
  62. GREAT story and pictures!!! The Baby looks just like my Rudy! I think I've mentioned that before...

    Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  63. That was too cute, ummmmm our hummers are afraid of us Scylla actually caught one and Arty almost did.

    Don't worry Daddy saved the one Scylla caught. He took it away from her and it flew off.
