Quietly curious, Tavish and Oliver sat at the screen door watching a little bird venture close by. He hopped about for a bit and then left.
They've definitely noticed birds before, both on the deck railing and a large old plum tree beyond. Sometimes their tails will be swishing and they'll ack-ack at them, but not this wee fellow.

Yes they have, Betty, and you are absolutely right about the learning/exploring. Such fun. ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜Š

LOL Patsy, I thought the same thing ....super plumy fluffy on the left, sleek on the right.....and both soooo soft. ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ˜Š

Wonderful photo of this curious pair and the object of their attention. And a chance for us to compare the tails of Tavish & Oliver. Hoping to see them again soon.

Those 2 have really blossomed, Nancy! Watching them (any cat) learn and explore the world around them is such fun!
@Mrs_Quinn_Eskimo, Tres sends his love to Reese's. Christmas party coming soon, promise!

calluna

That's it in a nutshell, Artola! All the other words are just expert-speak. LOL ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ฝ

calluna

Loved your dialogue, Impie!! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ฝ Yup, great cat TV!

calluna

LOL Ella. I was surprised at how close that little guy came to the window....and how quietly the boys watched him.
This afternoon, however, they were in full ack-ack mode in response to a Steller's Jay. Too fun to watch them.
Here's what one of the search results on the ack-ack says (https://www.rd.com/list/cat-noises/):
..............Cat โ€œchatterโ€ is a quiet, fast-paced โ€œack-ack-ackโ€ sound, or a clicking sound, that cats make when they see birds or other animals outside, says Delgado [Mikel Delgado, cat behavior expert]. โ€œWe donโ€™t fully understand this behavior, but because it seems to almost exclusively happen when cats see prey that they canโ€™t accessโ€”like through a windowโ€”we think it might be frustration or excitement,โ€ she says. โ€œSome scientists have observed that some predators make sounds mimicking their prey as a way to sneak up on them, so it may be the catโ€™s attempt to โ€˜tweetโ€™ like a bird.โ€

Artola

I think the ack-ack sounds could be interpreted to mean Yum-Yum.

Impie

So cute. That little birdie is such a teaser! I bet it's laughing its' little head off thinking "those two cute kitties can't get me!" Haha....
Tavi and Ollie trying to hypnotize the tease and think "just you wait little birde, wait 'til our mum opens the door"....
Mum knows "nah, that's not gonna happen"...LOL

Great cat TV, Nancy. โ™ฅโ˜บโ™ฅ

EllaMB

Ooooh, Ollie, look at that cute little birdie out there! Shhhh, don't scare him, maybe he'll come a little closer so we can get a little sniff!
My kitties always liked watching the birdies and made those little ack-ack sounds. Wish I knew what it meant.

calluna

Anne, isn't it fun watching them watch whatever it is.....even if I can't see it. LOL These two can stare at something so intently, sometimes aware yet relaxed, other times like your Gaitita, ready to chase. Who need reality TV?! ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ’•

Carol, they are quite the dynamic duo! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ฝ

LOL Artola! Enjoyed your caption/commentary! Haha

Mrs Quinn - I'm so glad you stopped by! So good to hear from you. Tavish and Oliver joined the household in February 2021. They were 10mo old at the time and had spent just over five months in a rural shelter before being transferred across the mountains to a different one. We've had some challenges along the way but they have really blossomed and settled in. They are loving and pretty adorable........when they're not being little hooligans. LOL ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜ป
Hope Reeses and Little Bit are enjoying cozy nap times when they're not giving their mousies flying lessons! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Olya, I think they're working on their winter coats. LOL You're also right. They've grown in size and assurance...not to mention their rascally antics. ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜Š

Thanks, FastEddie. They have their moment. LOL ๐Ÿ˜Š

FastEddie

Nice kitties

Olya

Awww! They are getting so big!

Mrs_Quinn_Eskimo

calluna- I must have missed something you have two new cats now Tavish and Oliver when did the arrive? - Mrs. Quinn.

Artola

Okay, we're just looking, we're appreciating the nice bird, without thoughts of eating him. Even if we could get out there remember we are peace-loving vegetarian kitties....

Carol66

Love this, bonded and hunting together!

Atsutsa

Aw, I love when I see these scenes. Gatita will sit in the doorway (window there) and watch the outside. In the morning she screeches at things, at night she just hunches over as if to leap on whatever she sees moving out there. So funny.
