.....until this picture when she was coming towards me (notice the ducked head and turned-back ears? she's such a baby!)
This is our old girl, Daisy. She still hasn't gained back much weight since her dental surgery a few weeks ago. I would like to see her gain a few more pounds, but she's doing pretty good for a dog who's 14 and a half years old.
Something especially fragrant here....maybe from a squirrel??
Here's another benefit of window feeders for birds.....entertainment for your indoor cat. These feeders work especially well in the dining room bay window, because there's a nice big spot (usually sunny) for Penny to park her furry girth and wait for birds to show up.
This is the feeder where I put mealworms for the chickadee. The chickadees perch in the crabapple tree right outside and fly down to pick up a worm. They're pretty quick, but still apprehensive about flying down to the feeder when Penny's sitting in the window.
Isn't this a funny picture? What intensity! Penny could see the chickadee out on the branch and whenever it would try to fly to the feeder, she would pop up from the crouch and, of course, scare the chickadee away.
This is the tray where the bluejays pick up their peanuts. They're a little braver than the chickadee, maybe because they don't have to come as close to the window to grab a peanut as the chickadee does for a worm.
Eventually Penny gets tired of this game and curls up in her chair for a nap and the birdies are able to fly over and get their special treats. I have another feeder farther over on the window, but just filled it up yesterday and Penny hasn't yet spotted the house finches coming to that one.
And did you know woodpeckers like corn on the cob? I have this corn hanging out for the bluejays, but this little downy has decided to take advantage of it also.
