Starting Small

"Kittens have to start small," Laura (my Vet tech) said to me after I told her how Katniss seems obsessed with bugs.  Known as "my little rodent,"and nearly 8 months old, Katniss sits in front of the DR slider and watches...hour after hour after hour.  Thinking that spot would become her favorite because of the five bird feeders within 50 feet, I learned early on that it wasn't the birds she was watching.  She LOVES bugs!





After a bug lands on the glass or screen, you'll here smacking against the glass.  She actually launches herself from a sitting position and leaps up to about four feet trying to catch them!  Hours and hours pass and she's still at it.  Meanwhile, the other day, I thought we would really be in for some entertainment when I spotted a fly in the house.

Minutes later, there was "my little rodent" sitting on the LR window.  Seeing her tilting her head side to side in wonderment as she starred down at the sill, I got up from the couch to investigate.  There was the fly...dead.  I think Katniss was expecting it to wake up and play some more.




This little bundle of fur also thinks that she can't be seen if she can't see you.  I remember when my kids were small and we played hide and seek, they thought that I couldn't see them when they covered their eyes.  Well, honestly I don't know if it's because she's a kitten or if that's what a cat thinks because when I'm in the bathroom, she waltzes in and disappears between the shower curtain and the shower curtain liner.  Then I say, "I can see you" and out she comes!

Stuff

YIKES!  How in Heaven's name did I accumulate so much "stuff"?  When I can't work outside whether it's because of the weather or because of my nasty Spring sinus', I often resort to reducing my stash pf stuff.  Sure, the annual "curbside pick-up" is slated for our neck of the woods which helps tremendously yet the remainder ends up being dropped either at Salvation Army and/or the nearby clothing bins.

Stuffing one bag at a time with clothes, and shoes, I then carried them out to my car so they were all ready to go.  There were even a few things that had to boxed up.

However, I didn't want to get rid of everything in this bag.

Learning Curves

I hardly know where to begin because it's been several months that I've been working on improving my Eagle skills...observing, and photographing behaviors. 



It began when I reached out to a fellow blogger, who just happens to be one of the most AWESOME photographers, storytellers, and educators and intellects I know.  After several emails across the pond (and then some), I had finally made up my mind to purchase a new DSLR.  Since that purchase, I have also acquired (thanks to him) a great lens as well as other necessities (camera gear).  

So I went from viewing my nest (263 yds away) with a scope, binoculars and my "zoomer" to using binoculars and a telephoto lens affixed to the DSLR.

Today and going forward, I am Thankful to Stewart for his guidance, help and overflowing patience with all my questions.  This one's for you, Pal...:)
