This week, the trials and successes of Bella, birds making poor life choices, and cold wet stuff.
Portabella and Pumpkin continue to not get along; Pumpkin seems to feel he has to chase her off whenever he sees her:
She came back, and again was chased off:
In that encounter, Pumpkin kicked the decorative barrel off. It was glued to the deck with the smaller ones; apart from helping the old west vibe, the barrels help hold the shelter’s maintenance door closed:
A Steller’s Jay grabbing some cat food:
Two cats arriving, with Pumpkin in the house; he’s fine with the other cats, just not Bella:
Pumpkin watching me from under the main deck:
A bunch of small birds drinking from the heated water dish:
Pumpkin and Pommie hanging out on the cat deck:
A bird tried to have a drink when cats were nearby, and Pumpkin suggested that might not be wise:
Pumpkin and Paladout seem to be getting used to each other; the latter saw Pumpkin peeking, but kept on eating instead of getting upset like in the past:
Pumpkin in the garden:
A Steller’s Jay arrives for more food:
This time, not so lucky: Pommie was in the cat house, and heard the bird:
Though I guess the bird was actually very lucky: it got the food, and narrowly escaped becoming food.
You may have seen that I added a new heated shelter in the breezeway next to our workshop. Subsequent to that, I modified it a little to make it more sheltered, by putting some old hanging baskets next to it:
Bella found the cabin, and tried it out. She has spent most of the past two nights in there, which makes me very happy:
Pommie and Pumpkin:
A cat in the breezeway:
Pommie has spent a fair bit of time in the cat house, too:
Bella in the breezeway again, from another angle (this camera is only there temporarily):
Bella inside the breezeway cabin last night:
Bella having a stretch in the morning:
I’m glad that she has a comfy shelter away from Pumpkin’s usual haunts.
