ABC Wednesday K


K is for Kitty
While this is not strictly a photo, it is amusing. My Kitty Bob is being attacked by a mockingbird. she has a nest in my lady banks out front and Bob had the gall to lay on the front lawn. Mockingbirds are notorious for agressively protecting the area near their nests. Hope you enjoy this. We keep a pretty tight rein on him in the spring so Bob did not hurt the mockingbird then or later. The babies hatched, grew and flew off in their own good time.

Go to Mrs. Nesbitts place for more ABC Wednesday!

Teh effrontery of it all! How dare he lie there on the grass!

Actually I am surprised that Bob the Kitty had that much patience.

I can't believe Bob lay there all that time getting pecked! How dare that mother protect her babies in "his" territory! lol

Caring for their own children is a common habit between all animals on earth. A brave mockingbird, and a sound of that bird I never has heard before.
I do not believe your Bob had let the babies alone without her fight
Well done Mocky

Did Bob ever get the hint to get out of there? Looks like that Mockingbird didn't phase him. What a cute video.

Sharon, not only do you have a goofy laugh like me, but your voice sounds exactly like mine. I am going to play this for my daughter to se what she thinks.
