Wild Cat Meets Squirrel

Standard

One of the wild cats we have around here is mostly white with a gray patch on its head and three spots on its back.  Its tail is all gray except at the tip.  We can’t get close to it, but it hangs around the birdfeeder pole in our front yard.  It is quite comical to watch it try to catch birds.  Its bright white color really stands out.  It will climb to the top of the pole and try to swat at a bird.  It has never caught any.  It also sleeps at the bottom of the pole.  And while the cat is sleeping, the birds eat like it is going to be their last meal.

We have day lilies growing all around the bottom of the birdfeeder pole.  There is a path between the thick day lilies where the cats pass through.  We also have a squirrel that visits the birdfeeder.  This morning the squirrel was on the ground eating seeds that had been thrown down by the birds.  The white cat was sleeping on the other side of the day lilies.  The cat woke up to hunt, and it and the squirrel met face to face in the center of the path.  The cat jumped up in the air and went backwards.  The squirrel jumped up and climbed the bird pole where it jumped from the top and ran into the woods.  The cat recovered and acted like nothing had happened.  The best television ever!
