A Lazy Day by Freeda Baker Nichols

In red oak tree eating acorns

Couger, the cat, watches

Cougar, the cat, watches

Across the limbs of the red oak into the post oak and down to the ground

Couger arrives at the post oak too late

The squirrel escapes to the nearby woods and Twister just thinks, "Ho hum, it's a lazy day."

    Reminds me that I never posted my mouse tale–cats can sure surprise you sometimes when they encounter prey…

  2. I love how cats can be totally present and just wait. Lovely photos.

    • Thank you, Patricia. I had not thought about it, but that’s how the black kitty was acting, just waiting. A little interested in the squirrel. But the squirrel knew just when and how to get away. He was not finished with the acorns but he had been there long enough to eat quite a lot before the cat became aware of him.
