Scouty Samples the Goods

Kitties!

Grayce here.
Please excuse the feather stuck to my lips; I've been busy examining the interior filling of the mystery nest, a.k.a. The Feather Bon Bon (FBB).

I told Mommy that Scouty needed to see what was inside so she moved half of the FBB up near the purple hidey-hut where he was snoozing.  Within seconds Scouty stuck his head out of the doorway, just like a turtle!  He was very interested.

So was his snoozing partner, Johnny.

Scouty enjoyed the FBB so much he started dribbling...and thoughts of tasty feathered flying feasts flittered through his head.  He has actually caught (and eaten!) birds on the Catio so he knows how tasty they are, the lucky dog.  Wait, can I say that?
Oh well, too late now.

After a few minutes Mr. Argy-Bargy Johnson had to check out the FBB for himself and "muscled" (he claims it's muscle) Scouty out of the doorway.

But only for a minute.  The turtle head reappeared as soon as Johnny's bum cleared the arch...

...because Scouty decided that sniffing the FBB wasn't enough, he needed to nom the filling!
(squeee!  His gums are starting to get freckled just like Felix's--ed)

Feathers are rather dry and tough to get down but with perseverance--and a barbed tongue--he got the job done.

Tomorrow...a Tongue Extravaganza!


Happy Wednesday!

You have such an interesting life in your catio.

We are so happy to see photos of Scouty in his element - he is such a handsome ginger mancat. And he makes a beautiful turtle. That FBB is great stuff. We wonder if you can organise the birdies to make many more so that you could supply us all with such delectable delights.
And we notice TJ was very kind even though he muscled Scouty out of the way - he emerged so that they could share. Certain cats here would simply block the doorway because they are so large and difficult to move......

We just suddenly had the thought that a turtle shaped napping box with the opening at the head would be SO funny when a kitteh stuck its head out fer a look-see...

Patty Woodland said...

Harry the Farm cat brought me a birdie today. I was not happy

Layla ( Cat Wisdom 101) said...

What kind of bird, my boys are asking while salivating.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Mmmmmmmm. That looks, well it looks....I don't even know. I have never seen such a wondrous object! Here in the concrete jungle we have only pigeons and while they must have nests, we suppose, we have yet to see one. *I* want an FBB of my furry own! Good going Scouty--love your dribbles ;-) Sooooo Manly!

The Cat Guy said...

Did we just learn that Scouty is a "lucky dog"? A dog in cat's fur??? How can this be?! We need a formal investigation.

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

I am jealous, you guys! I want my own bird's nest!

Barb and TheDailyGs said...

Gandalf has caught many a birdie... but he doesn't eat them. He just tries to bring them in the house to freak me out.

That last bit usually works.

Old Kitty said...

Awwww lovely Scouty's gotta get his fix of fevvers!! Take care

Scouty caught birds on the catio? How did they get onto the catio? We want to know how to let birds into our house so we can eat some, too. Maybe one of the big turkeys in the living room...

CATachresis said...

We all need our daily fevver fix. It's what makes life bearable!!

Cezar and Léia said...

Wow - lots of excitement at your house. Love your catico.

Shaggy and Scout said...

Scouty make sure she's not trying to get you to eat it so the Stew will taste better.

Rene said...

Oh Scouty, you didn't have to EAT it!

Maggie from Stillness at Cherith said...

Wow! He ate the feathers =)

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Aw Grayce, what a sweetie you are to think of shy Scouty! And his sleeping companion!
Scouty looks quite happy with all those feathers! And handsome Johnson, well, he always looks good! Have fun you guys!

Eric and Flynn said...

The fevvers in the FBB look very interesting. Mum doesn't like us catching flying fevvers, but sometimes we do and then we eat them. We always leave the wings though.

ABBY said...

Oh Grayce
Guess what Mr Jinx uncovered in our house today? A lizard. A big one. Mom didn't have a camera but she saved the silly thing before Mr Jinx could make lizard meat outta him so I understand about dribbling.

Derby, Ducky said...

Looks like you are really enjoying that nest.

Katie and Glogirly said...

You guys have ALL the fun.
I'm gonna tell Glogirly that I want to lay around all day with my feat up, eating feather bon-bons.
; ) Katie

Marg said...

What great fun to have all those fevvers to nom and smell. Lots of baby birds used to be in that one. I am so glad you mentioned fre4ckles on Scouty because Orange boyzo has them too and I didn't know what was going on with him. Glad you are all having such a good time.

Stacy Hurt said...

nommable delectible delicacies.

Mmmmmmm....bird flavor....mmmmmmm....

sparkyspitfire said...

well. that does look like fun. crunchy too. we hope you all will share.
but, word to the wise...giving a blog post the title: "Tongue Extravaganza," will get you more eyeballs than you intended and a lot of them will be disappointed. Just saying. I learned this when I posted a blog called "Ping Pong Power Puss." Lots of sorely disappointed search engine users that day. heh heh heh...

The Cat From Hell said...

Oh Boy! Yous guys has had lots of fun with that nest!
How does yous talks your Mommy into that?
Kisses

Oui Oui said...

Scouty,

You are no fool! I play with fevver toys that way & my mommy calls me a hermit crab. Pay no attention & protect those vulnerable parts!

Kitty kisses,
MMM

This is so funny! The cats are really getting into the act here.
