Cat Lady No. 38...Nature Lovers
Cat Lady Dahlia and her furry friend Murray enjoy communing with nature.
This week they are priming the bird feeders with seed and suet ("bird bait" as Murray likes to call it, in his cat-humor sort of way), in preparation for the Great Backyard Bird Count which takes place Valentines Day Weekend, starting Friday, February 13.
Unfortunately for Murray, but luckily for the birds, all of the feeders are much too high and Murray is much too plump to reach any of the feeders. So he will be content to sit inside with Dahlia and her binoculars and count their feathered friends for a few hours each day.
If you would like to participate in the Bird Count (it's fun and easy, and educational too!!), visit their wonderful interactive web site: www.birdsource.org/gbbc
