Happy Cats and Birds in the Garden

We must have brought the good weather back from California as we’ve had blue skies and sunshine all week here in the Northwest. In fact, we’ve had record breaking temperatures with Seattle reaching 80 degrees yesterday.

I’ll take it. It would have been hard to come back to rain and gray. But regardless of the weather, the cats are happy we’re back. After being cooped up inside for a week and a half, they are relishing the outdoors.

Yesterday as I sat by the stream, the dappled shadows from the Douglas Fir provided color and cover from the sunshine. It wasn’t long before Benji joined me on my lap.

Today it was Tiger’s turn to rest with me in the garden.

We both watched as a towhee came to drink. Tiger’s slow and Benji was inside so I wasn’t worried this time. I do what I can to protect the birds.

It’s good to be home.

  1. Nice pictures of Tiger and Benji! Spring is always better when you can enjoy it with cats!

  2. 80F is exceptionally hot for April. We would never get that here. It might hit 58F today, and that feels warm after the recent snow. (Which fortunately didn’t settle.)
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Yes, we’ve had genuine summer weather for a week and it’s been wonderful.. 70”s in the forecast for a few more days then we head back to the 60’s… amazing that you had snow so late in the year!

  3. My outdoor cats enjoy laptime too. It is a “peaceable kingdom.”

  4. Your skill continues to grow. I especially like the way you have a different focus in each shot to highlight what matters.

  5. I can’t believe how green it is there! Everything is still brown and snowy here, so I enjoy the peek into spring!
