Midnight Monday

We House Panthers know instinctively to keep our eyes focused for any available prey. Now, I know he is the daddy, but when it is hot and he is mowing the lawn...vultures circle. snicker I kid you not. Last summer, a turkey vulture landed in the yard while he was mowing. I never laughed so hard!!



I can't help it, I watch him like a weak gazelle moving back and forth, back and forth.




Of course we House Panthers get to watch out for weak prey from very comfortable perches...like beds.

Hi Hendrix!
Thank you for your sweet shout out to me and Chewy around my birthday. It made my mom and I feel all warm and fuzzy! I would like to thank your friends for their good wishes too. :)
You really are the best NOMSS ever!
So my new blog is ready now (go ahead and click on my profile to get to my blog!), but because my mom is useless, I have hardly even gotten around to tell anyone about it. One day soon I will update it and then get back into the swing of things and visit my friends!!
Love Clover xo

The Island Cats said...

Well, of course, Hendrix...you gotta be comfy while you watch!

Sunny's Mommy said...

Your Daddy's prey! LOL We have those here, and wild turkeys, and vicious deer :-0, but they don't usually go after Sunny's Daddy. Your Daddy must be extra special and smell really yummy :-D

William said...

Ha ha ha ha! You are so funny, Hendrix! That made me laugh a whole lot!

SophieKitty said...

You're funny, Mr. Hendrix! I hope vultures don't really take your dad away.

Forever Foster said...

We laughed just seeing the pictures. We'd have laughed ourselves silly if we saw it IRL!

(P.S. Give your mum a snuggle from us).

Cory said...

I don't know what I'd do if I saw a turkey vulture! Did you chatter at it???

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

You got it made in the shade, Dude. That's using the old noggin!

We just found your blog and signed up to follow, and we look forward to getting to know you!

Max said...

I like to watch the Woman mow. It makes me feel good knowing I'm inside where the cool air blowing thingy is, and she's out there sweating :)

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Turkey Vultures are kinda cool - huge and hideous but kinda cool! We have them at the swamp sometimes. Just how close did it land to your daddy? heh, heh, heh!

Tracey and Huffle said...

Well, where else would we watch from?

Hansel said...

stoopid vultures. I wud KILL dem.

Gud job protectin dad.

Ailurophile said...

You are a mighty panther Hendrix and you look like stealthily stalking your prey for a quick ambush..

Zeus said...

Turkey vultures? That sounds scary. Weren't you afraid your human pet was about to be eaten?

Shilgiah the Cat said...

Isn't laughing at our humans what we cats are supposed to do? You have an especially humorous dad. I'll bet he mows the lawn like he does just to give you house panthers a cuckle or two.

The Crew said...

You know Hendrix, I wouldn't worry about it. Unless of course you think someone might expect YOU to get out there and cut the grass. Then you must stress how tired you are and how you need to stay in bed.

It's fun snoopervising the work of the beans, isn't it?

LC, Ayla, and Iza said...

Beds are great places to sit, but we cant see out anny windows from ours...

Pinky Ash and Boo said...

We can understand why you laughed that would be funny to see.

Sabrina, Sam and Simon said...

A turkey vulture ... haaaaa haaaaa! We hope your Daddy came out of the mowing unscathed! Momma and Daddy have those at their country place, but we don't have them in the city! A lot of pidgeons, though, that poop all over the place!
