Cat update for week ending May 25

Just because we’re in Hawaii, doesn’t mean you need to suffer the loss of a Caturday post! Here’s a post with pictures from the few days before we left.

It’s bothered me since building the cat house that the signs weren’t very readable, as they just had a stain without any color difference of the carved lettering (you can see them towards the end of this construction post). So I recently used a marker to color the lettering, making them much more visible:

Here’s a closer view. The coloration of the scull shape is just natural weathering:

A scrub jay has visited several times to grab some kibble out of the feeder:

A squirrel:


The squirrel leapt onto the camera housing. Flying squirrel!

Oh yeah, this is supposed to be a cat post. Here are the twins:

Two happy cats inside:

The alien orange cat has been visiting a lot recently. Here he is inside the shelter:

Another time, the orange cat arrived when a cat was inside. Harsh words and swipes were exchanged, and the cat rapidly exited through the back door:

The next morning, the orange cat arrived when Porcini was obliviously eating in the feeder:

They didn’t exchange any words, but the orange cat wandered off after a minute:

Then he ate a bit:

But was startled by more food dispensing:

The alien gray cat also stopped by briefly:

And scrub jay, with food in its beak:

That’s all for now. I may include some pictures from while we’re away in the post next week; most cameras record about a week’s worth, so I’ll review them when we get home.
