About Me

Hi. I'm Cleo. After being surrendered at Orange County Animal Services in Chapel Hill, NC I found myself being gawked at by a couple of humans whom I eventually adopted. I let them refer to themselves as "mom" and "dad", and they couldn't have found a better home than one filled with... me.

Critter TV

 I'm sure it's nothing out of the ordinary for most of you kitties, but lately Cleo's been getting into birds and other critters on TV.  She'll watch with great fascination as they flit back and forth across the screen, and it's especially amusing when they go off-screen and she gets right up on the keyboard to look around and behind the screen, trying to see where they went.  






I guess I just foolishly assumed that, for a senior kitty such things wouldn't be of interest to her.  
I'm not sure who is more easily entertained- her watching the animals, or her mom and I watching her watching the animals.

Cleo you look like you are a techno cat. Precious barely pays attention when I have PBS nature on television. And she never pays attention to the computer. But it sure looks like your dad got plenty of photos of you looking very beautiful this morning and very interested.

Cleo, it is so annoying when you know it must be there somewhere but you can't find it!

As long as you two enjoy watching her, watching the critters...it's all good!

It's fun for them to watch bird TV, but I know us humans enjoy watching them even more. I so remember.

I linked this post to Happy Tuesday. Cleo asked me to.

Have a purrfect day, Cleo. My best to your peeps. ♥

Is there really any question about who is the most entertained by this?
Not!
It's obviously Mom & Dad.
As they should be ...

Cleo sure is a smart kitty and I bet you may see her find one if you keep watching her. Go Cleo

Who says there is nothing good on the internet? Once in a while we watch the birds too, but we can never get behind them to catch them either.

I love watching Bird TV. Sometimes the mom puts it on the big screen and those birds are bigger than me! ~Ernie

Cleo, you sure do love your bird watching. We do the same at home with our fur-babies and just like your mom and dad Cleo we get a kick out of watching them. Thanks for sharing. We hope you have a fun time.

That is so cute. My Rosie likes youtube videos for cat- red string and she also likes the white string. XO

Cat television can be the best! Enjoy Cleo!! Don't mind the beans watching you watching.

Our old bro Eddie liked to watch birds on TV. Izzy couldn't care less about TV, but I watch any cat or goat video if the Pet Collective is on TBD (an OTA station). Mom likes to watch me do that.

P.S. Mom's original cat always came running to watch Jimmy Carter if he was on.

Cool! Cleo has a new wonderful hobby! When I was working in Vancouver, I used to leave bird TV cast to the bedroom TV for Nellie Bellie when I was at work. She was absolutely enthralled! I would turn it off when I got home and she would come down to the living room and demand that I turn it back on for her.
The younger cats are no where near as interested, though they do watch for 15 minutes or so. Marv has been known to attack the TV to catch the birds!

You watch the birds like men watches football.

Cleo! I really enjoy watching birds and squirrels on the TV, too. :) Love, Ava.

Summer said...

Funny enough, I'm not much of one for watching actual TV, on the computer or on the real TV. I'd rather see the critters in person!

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...

Cody always loved watching bird videos on my phone or laptop and Roary does too! Roary is lucky, a Mama bird built a nest on our balcony, so he got to watch up close and purrsonal!

My Mind's Eye said...

Cleo I'm 100% sure the humans are entertained by watching you.
Madi was fascinated with birds at our feeders. We called them her pets

This is so cute. I'm so pleased whenever geriatric Jezebel gets playful, and the kittens really have enlivened her. :)

About This Blog

Created in July 2011 this blog chronicled the everyday life of a well-seasoned, spoiled house panther named Orbit. He was a nearly constant companion for almost 22 years, and ruled our roost until he passed away in December 2014, and the loss of his companionship hit us like a ton of bricks.
After more than 2 years without a live-in feline friend we found this senior Tortie gal at a local shelter and just couldn't leave without her. Cleo certainly came with an abundance of purrsonalitude, and has staked her claim on our hearts and in our home since day one. It took some long, deep thought, but I decided to pick up where Orbit left off and let Cleo tell her stories. Of course from time to time I'll add some non-Cleo posts, but she'll get over it.
