Springer

Here is Springer, named after my Harley Davidson, just after he "almost" got a bird. Lucky bird! -Jeff

Does everyone see the feather sticking out of his mouth?

Adorable - and I love the feather! It's great that you're doing this. I love kitties of all ages and now I have 2 sites to check every day!

He's a handsome boy. Almost a great hunter? Or was he interrupted? My spot is a good hunter. But you know we do have to help the other animals once in a while. He looks like my cat that passed away last year. I want to pet his nose.

This is a great pic. The feather sticking out of his mouth is very telling. HEE HEE!

My Oscar is a mighty bird hunter too! LOL!

Cute Picture! Looks like he got just a little piece before mommy grabbed him? My kitties aspire to be great bird hunters too, but they aren't allowed to play outside. However, they do sharpen their skills, with the stray moth or fly that makes its way indoors. :-)

Cute pic! He has the same look that my Ella does sometimes. She loves to chase birds too but doesn't go farther than the porch. He Probably wants to get down so he can get back into the chase.
I have to send in a picture of her. I love your site, I only wish I had thought of it first! LOL

Cute! A few weeks ago, one of our cats caught and brought into the house 1 bird, and 2 mice...in one evening! We rescued the mice but I don't know if the bird survived.

Very very cute! Looks like you have some very nice vines back there! :)

Jeff said...

He came VERY close to catching the bird! He was quite the knucklehead, I miss him terribly too!!

Springer is beautiful. What a picture with the feature in his mouth. My little girl Kiara loves to watch birds from our den window, and I'm sure if she could get out she would have a few things hanging from her wiskers!

Linda-Kiara said...

How do I send you a picture of my little fuzz.

She would love to be a celeb!

Beautiful big boy! Pretty close call, I'd say. Thanks for starting a new spot for adult cats. Love the kittens, but my cats are almost 11 years old and it's good to see older cats too. Good luck with your site. Will check daily. Thanks again.

What a handsome cat! And the expression on his face, he seems to be having a "pity party" about his lost prey! Jeff, you mentioned missing him...I'm sorry he's not in the present with you, but he's not far -- I believe my felines and assorted other warm blooded creatures who have crossed over are all hangin' with me, still...
(coping mechanism? Dunno)

I LOVE THIS SITE! Such handsome adult critters! Nice to have 2 sites to visit every day! Now, if someone could get into my cyber-illiterate head how to download a picture of Emily in for consideration...!!!

Linda-Kiara,

Send me a picture to kats2boyz@yahoo.com. Thanks!! I'm so glad everyone likes the site.

Jeff said...

Rose, I wish it were that easy, he is living with the "ex". It was MUCH harder to see him go than it was to see her go!! I bet I'll miss him longer too!!

Anyway, thank all of you for the kind words about the scoundrel.

Springer is one handsome guy!!!

hehe, I love the feather sticking out of his mouth... reminds me of the old Sylvester & Tweety cartoons, where he'd swallow Tweety, and hiccup, and a feather would poke out of his mouth, and he'd get bonked by the little old lady. :)

Kat1 said...

lol...imagining Sylvester & Tweety.

Bird watching from the window: Great

Bird watching in the front yard: Even better

Bird feather sticking from mouth:
