Eddie At Ease

Eddie is using these lazy end-of-summer days to catch up on his bird studies -- confusing fall warblers tend to make him drowsy . . .

But purple finches bring him to life again . . . so many birds -- so little time.



Later, as we eat our lunch, he honors us with his company on the table. A smug self-satisfaction pervades his being . . .



and he stretches luxuriously, displaying his fancy moves, his feline grace . . .

That Eddie is an elegant fellow! :)

Merisi -- the book was open to a page called 'confusing fall warblers' -- there are three more pages of these little yellow-green birds of which thee are many (easily confused) varieties. I love the goldfinches too -- the males so bright and tropical in their yellow and black plumage. We have many around here and I enjoy their swooping flight.

Carol -- and how Eddie agrees!

LOL! That is too funny. I had a feeling when Eddie started rolling over that I knew what was coming. That happens to our cats quite a bit more than they would like. I can't help but laugh (once I'm certain they're ok) because they always manage to look like "What? I meant to do that. No, really..." I'm going to post a picture of my Shadow Bumpnbiter tomorrow; I think he and Eddie are long lost twins!

Eddie always says, after one of these quick dismounts, 'That felt good!" a la Peter Sellers when he fell down the stairs in a Pink Panther movies.

Nothing is so funny as when a cat has an oops moment! Love it! Great post.

Christie -- Eddie said to tell you that he's not cute; he's majestic, thank you very much.
