Feeding the Birdies

Recently, Mama saw a cool idea on Pinterest. It was a bird feeder made from peanut butter and birdseed on an empty toilet paper roll. It was originally pinned from The Moffatt Girls blog.

With the winter storms we've been having, Mama wanted to be able to feed the birdies who might have a hard time finding food otherwise. She also knew that Harvey and Evelyn would appreciate the Bird TV it would create!

Mama made one feeder for each tree in the back yard.

She trudged through the snow to put them on branches, then came in to watch the birdies flock to their snacks.

The cardinals and house finches loved the homemade feeders!
Evelyn had a great time watching the birdies too!

I hope you're taking care of the wildlife where you are!

BIG Kitties

Mom and Dad had a Valentine's date at the Kansas City Zoo yesterday. They saw some beautiful-and BIG-kitties there!

This tiger was chillaxing, but his friend was up and moving. And roaring!

The cheetahs were very active since it was a little cooler. Mama tried to get a picture of one of them running, but he was too fast! This guy is gorgeous though.

The lions were majestic as ever. The ladies were all napping with their paws folded demurely in front of them while the big guy watched over them.

It was the purrfect Valentine's Day for Mom & Dad.

Happy Valentine's Day to Mom

Even though I'm a cat
I have a lot to say
About my adoring mom
This Valentine's Day.

My mom gives me pets
And she gives me treats
She even gives me my choice
Of our home's best seats.

I love my mom
That you can see
I make sure she knows it
By my heart shaped pee.
