Threatening Thursday

One thing I noticed when mommy went to feed the birdies yesterday is that she put FOUR piles of corn on the ground by the woods. I don't know if any of you remember, but often we have deer passing by on their way to the park.



Well, lately mommy has seen four deer, one a juvenile male with ANTLERS about 6 inches long!! Ack! So, since it has been so cold, mommy has taken to putting out four piles of corn for them to eat! Can you believe it?!? That means every night and every morning FOUR vishus deer are behid my house! Where I can see them and they can see me!



Look what they did yesterday morning. That is an inch of ice on top of that snow they busted thru to get to the corn. Their hooves must be soooooo sharp.



This morning they had busted thru the ice AND an additional 4 inches of snow that fell yesterday.

Mommy says if she iddn't feed them they would starve and if they are starving they are more likely to attack and eat juicy kitties so she is really only protecting me. What do you think? I feel pretty threatened. Am I safe???

I don't know...we have only seen one little deer in our backyard and she was really sweet. She just looked at us and didn't seem like she would hurt any of us kitties. I think she just wanted to eat apples from our tree.

As long as you are indoors and they are owtdoors, you is safe. I think your mommy is right, the corn will taste so delishus to them that they won't even think about eating poodins.

your human is a traitor who will no doubt come to rue her traitorous ways when the vishus deer finally catch up with her! She should be afraid! You can mock her fear, Bendrix, when it all ends in tears! Mwa ha ha

We have a lot of those where we live. That's a good idea for your Mommy to feed them, so they don't starve and look for kitties. I think you're safe, Hendrix ;-) Just make sure you stay inside.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I think so long as you stay inside they will just take the offerings and not eat you...

It sounds like your mum has a good plan to protect you from the vishus deers. But keep your guard up, Hendrix!

Simba and Jazzi said...

I wouldn't like to meet one of them on a dark night.

Have a great weekend.

We have deer come through our backyard too. They eat the peanuts and bird seeds that Mom puts out. She feels sorry for them because they are cold and hungry and she says they won't hurt us.

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

I am a little nervous of those deer but we have a lot around here and they have never eaten a cat. Or so they say....

Angus Mhor said...

Your mom loves ya, Hendrix. She's keepin' those vishus deer occupied with yummy corn so their thoughts don't turn to yummy YOU!

Do hide, tho'. Just in case.

Steppa and her Babys +Lover Guy said...

George Online Cat said...

Hendrix, deer. Wow. We have some but they never come into the garden. I see them through the window at night. My human says there is a wonderful poem by Thomas Hardy about deer in the dark.

Thoughts said...

Hendrix I think you are safe. I dont think deer bhave any interest in beautiful mancats like yourself. they are gentle, docile creatures. we also feed them when we can and are so happyt to hear that your mom does too!

Piggy said...

I think you are very safe, so long as you stay inside. Deer can be very vishus - especially the little cute ones with long eye lashes...
Your mommy is very sweet to care for the deer like that - even if they are vishus...

Grrreta said...

Your mom is very sweet to feed the evil vishus deer to keep them from starving. I'm pretty sure you'll be safe indoors, but you probably should sleep with one eye open just in case.

Ana said...

wow, you are having deers in the yard.. that's really interesting. we guess your mommy is doing well in feeding them!

Boy n Beethoven said...

Oh no!!! Vishus deer! Be careful!

Hendrix - I don't think deer like eating cats very much - they would much rather have the corn. It's very nice of your mom to feed the dear with all that snow and all...The only thing you need to be careful about is running out of corn :-)
