I have chased him out almost falling over him or my own feet.
I have come to believe that Kitty & Mussy have bribed him into doing this. As they sit on their counter or the dining table... and as soon as I stumble into the kitchen run for their dishes.
Charlie of course, thinks this is wonderful timing. Of course being mostly asleep I toss some treats and dog food in to their dishes - then wander back to fall on my bed - Literally! I really am partially asleep.
I acknowledge it is my fault for falling for their sneaky tricks. Being a mother I automatically respond to noises of possible distress.
Animals are way to smart. Oh they all go back to sleep after I've gone back to bed. I know this as occasionally when I fall in to my bed I am WIDE AWAKE! DAMN!
Also, I discovered the other day after returning from picking up my mail... and while walking laps with Charlie, that I have an audience of Doves that watch me.
Over a large block away I have begun to see a number of Doves - off in the distance - all lined up on a power line a quarter mile away.
I check each morning now and there they all are.
When I feed the wild birds, apparently doves from all around gather in my back yard. Once they eat me out of seed they take off for parts unknown.
The sparrows now live in the Red Tip bushes and the Oak trees around my house. The wilder birds apparently have given way to them and live in the trees in the back yard. The Inca Doves - new to the yard.. there are 8 of them now... they live in the Cedar trees above the retaining wall.
Good Grief - they are developing neighborhoods.
The only good thing is, if the feed is gone so are they. Well the Doves are at least. 8-)
The songbirds are the ones that let everyone else know I filled the dishes ROFLOL!
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
