How much is that kitty in the birdhouse?

This past weekend was spent securing the backyard in preparation for Hurricane Sandy as well as the upcoming winter.
 Sunday was a gorgeous day so, when we took a short break, we brought Baby out to enjoy some fresh air with us.

We had just finished removing the birdhouse from the pole in the backyard and it was still sitting on the table. Cats, of course, are very curious creatures and Baby is no exception. She immediately went over to sniff and investigate the birdhouse.


Apparently she liked what she saw - and smelled - because she decided to move in!
 
Oh, Baby, you always keep us so entertained!
 
 The cupola on the birdhouse needs to be replaced as it fell off (again), so the last photo in the collage is Baby peering out through the open roof.
 
 She checked out every opening...
 
... from every angle...

 ...and finally settled on looking out the large arched doorway.


All the better to look around for squirrels and birds.

At this point, I think she spotted a Sammy Squirrel down on the deck...

... so it seemed like a good time to put Baby inside and get back to work. We still need to get all these ground covers planted before the ground freezes! Maybe this coming weekend.
 
  (I couldn't resist a photo of Baby's fluffy pantaloons when she came out of the birdhouse!)
 
I'm joining Claudia for Favorite Thing Saturday at Mockingbird Hill Cottage this week. Be sure to stop by and share one of your own favorites!
 
Have a great weekend!
 
Donna

ha ha ha hahahaha Oh Donna, that was a GREAT post. You should submit that to a cat magazine.

Baby is adorable. I just love that cat.Imagine her investigating that birdhouse so thoroughly! Ha! The birdies would have gotten quite a surprise if they popped in for some seed.

Take care, and have a nice weekend. Susan

It's amazing what a cat will squeeze itself into! That is one handsome cat, pantaloons and all. ~ Maureen

That is so funny to see Baby in a birdhouse! I'm sure she would've been even happier if there were birds in it. ;-)

Deb said...

This is just adorable. Love the paw coming out the window. So funny. She reminded me of a turtle with it's house on it's back. Loved it! Deb

That made me smile! She so cute! Amazing hat she can squeeze herself in the birdhouse and curl up. She looked like she was quite cozy!

Cats are intriguing creatures. I have two that share my space.

What adorable photos. I imagine you had fun taking those pictures. I like your collages.

Glenda/MidSouth said...

What a beautiful kitty! Yes - they are very curious creatures.:)
Thanks for stopping by. Yes - lots of leaves and the courtyard is covered again. Hope you and your home were safe and no damage from Sandy.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Sharon said...

Oh Donna, that Baby is going to be one for the record books! She is one of a kind!

Haworth said...

How adorable that Baby is! (Although I don't think you'll be getting many birds in that house next year once they get a whiff of her!!) Such cute pictures. My cat used to do that with a KLEENEX box if you can imagine that.

Chatelaine said...

Oh my Baby is such a beauty! She looks so happy investigating every nook and cranny of the birdhouse. I guess it must have had the fragrance of bird in it.

I was noticing that beautiful backside photo of her. Her pantaloons are lovely.

J said...

These pictures are priceless! I love the "upside down" one of Baby peeking out. Around here there is nothing that I put out that doesn't have an instant visitor like Baby. The smallest boxes will find a cat turning around and around, trying to get "situated!" So entertaining! Love that "big" head just bursting out of that tiny opening - wearing the birdhouse like a hat!
