I was being annoying to Lisa because she was hounding me for dinner, and it wasn’t time yet. She surprised me by being incredibly tolerant and cute.

Needless to say, she got a bunch of kitty treats for being so nice.

I was on a walk through the “nature trail” and this is where it lead me:

egret 1

I would have been disappointed and had to turn around right away if it had not been for the Egrets who were wading through the flood water. Here is some footage I got with my cellphone camera:

So I stood out there, just a few feet away from them, and they didn’t really seem to mind that much. I also got to meet another wildlife photographer while I was out there in the very chilly wind.

Here are some still frames of the Egrets, I added color and effects to some of them just for fun:

One day while we were walking we passed under a tree and heard a strange voice. So we stopped and said “Hello?” then we heard it again!

I got out my camera and found the bird who was making the sound and asked it “Hello?” again in a funny voice, the crow responded!

No idea what it said exactly, but it was definitely talking.

Lisa still enjoys playing in the cat closet that we built for her, She climbs up to the top and calls for us to come play with her.

Here she is having her requested play time:

I’m glad that she likes the area we built for her, if she didn’t it may have just become a storage area…

Its been a while since I went out to the creek together with all the cats so I decided it was time to go on an outing.

You can tell that all of the cats want some personal space from one another, since we have been indoors for some time. (After the “Halloween Seclusion” and my being sick)

Despite minor squabbles, it was a nice outing… and much racing was done between the three of them.

Here are some bonus pictures from the walk (not in the video)

I’ve been sick lately, off and on. Then once I thought I had overcome the cold it came back and hit me really hard. Knocking me into bed for almost two whole days of just sleep.

Since I’m feeling better now I decided to make some drawings 😀 YAY! Hope you all are feeling well, or at least will get well soon.

Here is the actual drawing completed:

Uni Through Darkness

And a close up for good measure!

Uni Clouds Closeup

Shake off the dust and keep on flying Uni, the daylight can’t be far from us.

I’ve been sorting the files on my computer lately and boy do I have a ton of photos and videos.

Here is a cute video of Kyoko and Lisa playing together, back in 2004, about 10 months after we first adopted Lisa. I was so happy to see them getting off to a good start towards friendship.

 

These birds are so cute and tiny compared to the huge sunflowers that they are eating from! If you watch the video closely, you can see a number of bees flying about and they are of considerable size when you compare them to the size of this little bird.

I thought that this particular garden was much nicer than the others I had passed while I was “On Safari”. Not because of the flowers, but more because it was feeding the wildlife in the area.

Now for some snapshots!

Picking sunflower seeds is hard work!

Almost hidden, the upside down bird gets a meal.

This little bird is full and ready to go home.

Throughout the summer (2015) I kept my eyes open for butterflies and tried my best to get as much footage as I could. I’m pretty happy with some of the close up shots that I got. Okay.. so one of the butterflies in the video was from a couple years ago, but I think it fits well with the other flutterbyes.

I’m not sure what kind of butterflies they are, I did some quick google searches to guess at what they may be. Correct me if I’m wrong 😀

Here are some still frames of the butterflies:

Here is a video I recorded in late summer this year of my catnip plant harvest:

Needless to say I smelled just like catnip for the rest of the day. In fact, it was such a powerful smell that I didn’t really want to touch catnip again for at least a week! About a month after this video was made I went back with my clippers and cut the rest of the bush up since it didn’t reflower, I left enough for the plant to grow a little and (hopefully) survive the winter.

Since I harvested catnip… and I have 3 cats, you know what is coming next.

Thats right! Yet another video of my cats enjoying catnip! Hooray!!

For some reason Nice Guy never joins these social events. He is more of a private nip eating kinda guy. Oh well, Lisa and Kyoko really seemed to enjoy themselves.
