A funny observation

Coming back from work this morning, I seen something that made me laugh. I would have loved to have filmed it, but it was happening on someone’s property.

I first seen the magpie. But when I glanced again, I then noticed the cat. Then I noticed what the magpie was doing.

The cat was crouching low, tail swishing, looking like it was ready to pounce.

The magpie was taunting the cat varying it’s distance from it, between 2 meters to 1 meter, then back to 2.

Cat being slightly cautious when the bird was coming closer, that it looked like it might back off slightly.

I didn’t watch long, because I didn’t want it to look like I was being suspicious with regards to the property, as someone was in, as I could see a tv was on. But what I seen, was enough to give me a chuckle. That magpie was certainly playing and taunting. I have seen things like this on You Tube years ago, where birds are tormenting cats. But I have not witnessed it myself, until this morning.

My answers to Fibbing Friday – 24th January

It’s Fibbing Friday and the theme is cats. My goodness, to say I am a cat lover, I was finding this a little tough for my fibbing answers hard. 😁

For how to play along, where these questions originally came from and if you are playing along, to link to the original post, visit https://pcguyiv.wordpress.com/2020/01/24/fibbing-friday-january-24th-2020/

Ok… So here I go with my answers.

1. Why did ancient Egyptians worship cats? They thought they were goddesses.

2. Why is it said that cats have nine lives? I think someone lost count, because they have more than 9 lives.

3. Why are cats afraid of cucumbersWhen they have a cucumber placed right behind them, they have every right to jump and be suspicious.

4. Why do cat eyes seem to glow in the dark? They are vampires.

5. Why do cats have retractable claws? They are re-sharpening them.

6. Why do we train cats to use a litter box, but train dogs to go outside? My goodness. Think of the mess if we had and the room they would need. They would need a room to themselves.

7. Why do cats purr? A good sign they are fine and working.

8. Why are black cats considered bad luck? I don’t think they are unlucky. But if going out in the night, they need a refective jacket.

9. What is the musical, Cats about? The obvious as the title says. But it’s a long one.

10. What’s the big deal about Dick Whittington’s cat? Had a strong stomach.

Post re-share: Soaring Temperatures Bring Danger to Cats and Kittens Falling out of Windows — Katzenworld

It’s simple. If you cannot make your home safe for cats, don’t have one.

It angers me when people don’t take advice. You must not have windows open in the summer, unless you have something on them that is guaranteed to keep your cat safe. Or ensuring that rooms are not accessible to cats where there is a window open.

Do not own a cat, if you cannot guarantee their safety.
