Tweet Week!

Our friend Fin has declared this to be Tweet Week! We like her style, just making a decision to declare a theme week and running with it. You go, girlcat.

So here's what we got for you as our main entry for Tweet Week. First up, from January of this year, Pixie is on the window seat perch inside, staring at the birdies on the ground outside. (You may have to bigify to see them, they're the little blackish blobbies against the dead grass.) There's about 10-15 viewable in the photo but there were a bunch more out in the yard. Because of the way the ground slopes, that window overlooks the backyard by quite a bit, so it's almost like being in a 1/2 story upper level!

Pixie was just chittering away at those birdies, swishing his tail, and giving them what for. If he could've gotten out, he would've showed THEM who's the boss!

Now here we have what otherwise would have shown up in one of our new features, the Sunday Salute. This photo is from August 2004, when Bugsy and Sassy were about 10 months old. This was taken at the House We (except Pixie) Lived In Before along with our ex-daddy.

Even though there are no fevvers in the picture, we think this counts as a Double Tweet picture...d'ya know why? Well, we'll tell you! First, they're up there on that cross-bar next to the hummingbird feeder and above the other bird feeder. So when birdies came to feed when we weren't sitting there, we could watch them from inside. And second, they were looking off at a bird, probably a cardinal if The Mommy remembers correctly, that was sitting over on the fence! You can see how intent they were, as if they're ready to jump right off and go after it (they didn't).

There you have it! We hope you liked our Tweet Week photos.

PS - An update on Bugsy: He's now had two radiation treatments. The Mommy talked with the cancer v-e-t's office Monday afternoon and they left her a voice mail Tuesday afternoon, and everything went well with both treatments. He came out of the anesthesia just fine (they have to anesthetize him so he'll stay still in the restraints during the treatment), has been eating afterwards, and resting well. So far they have no concerns. 2 down, 16 to go...

We love the pic of you two on the birdie feeder! You both look ready to pounce.

We're glad to hear that Bugsy is going through his treatment okay, but we bet you guys miss him while he's at the hospital!

CCL Wendy said...

Yes, I agree there are implied Tweets in this post, and that certainly counts!

I'm sorry to hear about Bugsy and the radiation treatments. I didn't realize he had to go through all of that -- poor wee pet! It's good that he's not having any lasting effects from it, though.
