Bruce, I'm always impressed when I see people who, on discovering this kind of nasty, come back with the camera instead of staying away.

Guys, it was interesting to see the reaction of our two year old granddaughter. Her first inclination was to go pick it up.

This cat regularly stalks the squirrels in our back yard, haven't seen it catch one yet. The squirrel appears to know its there, but is fast enough to make it to the nearest tree if the cat starts to pounce. If the cat does run after the squirrel, it usually runs up a tree, goes over to another tree an comes down and continues feeding on the dropped seeds from the bird feeder overhead. A real daredevil!


When we lived on West Blvd in Rapid City, there were lotsa red squirrels around the neighborhood. They would drop nuts on my tomcat Luther while he slept in the front yard. Then when Luther got up, they would try to get him to chase them. Ol' Luther was too smart to try it however and a very patient cat.

Karl A. Very nice looking puppy. So how long did he sit there? Looks like something has got his attention. Tom

I had some visitors the other day.

Because of the growing number of deer in our area, we are not suppose to feed them....in theory I'm feeding the birds


The white specs on the deer's heads are bird seed dropping down from the feeder.

I chased some of those "Damnbies" out of my yard today; they were at my feeder, too. You really don't want them in your yard, they carry ticks with nasties like Lyme Disease.

Today, Mother's Day, I took a picture of the bumblebees on my rhododendron - it was cool, but they were extremely happy to be looking for pollen.

Across the road from the New Jersey University of Medicine and Dentistry Hospital is a large parking lot. Surrounding the lot is a fairly large area of woodlands. At the end of the lot are sheds that house some of the University's maintenance equipment. For many years a tribe of wild cats have lived in these sheds and woods. They are fed by a local animal rescue group and are spayed and released when they can be captured. Here's a shot of the locally well-known 'Parking Lot Cats:'


But wait-- not all of these are cats! Look closely at the guy to the right of the walking black cat. Yup-- a raccoon!

When I first drove up there were two feeding, but one got scared off:
One time I saw four raccoons feeding with the cats.

Here's another shot from a different angle. The cats may look docile and domesticated, but they are, in fact, completely feral:


As you see, the two species seem perfectly content to live together as long as there is sufficient food:
