Varmints among us!



Yosemite Sam, the infamous varmint hunter, always after Bugs

I need Sam to come around and chase off the varmints that show up from time to time in my yard...
(however, he'd have to check his guns at the door)
: )



This fox appeared one morning and pretty much posed for me! 
I put my camera on zoom and stuck it out the door -- I was NOT going out on the patio!
He appeared in the summer of 2010....
(If you want to see more pics, here's the original blog post)




But THIS guy came by recently ....
and didn't stay for long!
Sam, you did your job!!



I think this raccoon was just as startled by me and I was by him!



I haven't actually seen any bunnies around, but I know they're out there.....

This is a ceramic one that I made in an air brushing class. 
He's a little banged up now (Oliver keeps walking over him...)
but he's a part of the family.  Varmint that he is.


And then there are these guys who have apparently adopted us.
But they can stay.
Just so you know, Sam ....



Outside Kitty has been visiting for about a month.
She/He will get about a foot away but the minute you move ....
ZOOM!!!



What a great tail!!



Then along came Big Gray



Now the alarm is out!
Calico found out about the kitty food!



And, last night, Bitty Kitty appeared. 
I'm sure I'll be able to get a better shot another time!
We're wondering if Calico is Bitty Kitty's mom.

So, Yosemite Sam, do your job on the fox and raccoon varmints ....
 but leave the kitties alone!
If you know what's good for you.....

This post is just filled with cuteness!!! The fox and raccoon are so pretty, but I agree...I don't really want them at the house. The raccoons come eat our cat food :)

Your new "family" of kitties are adorable! I like Big Gray! And Bitty Kitties are always cute :)

Lola said...

So cute! Thanks for stopping by,

Visiting from A-Thursday - *V*ertigo the greatest movie?

Andrea said...

Hahaha, love this cute post. We have many cats, but none of them have the squirrel-like tails like those two here. I wonder if they are just afraid or that's normal.

Quite a cast of characters over by you. We've had a fox and coyote once, deer on occasion. The cats have definitely let the world know there is a party in your backyard :)

Your yard looks like the neighborhood gathering spot! The kitties are all so cute! Thanks to you and your hubby for taking care of them! Is there an organization in your area that will help with TNR of the kitties so they can stick around but not continue to have babies?

Rose said...

Great pictures! The new kitties are adorable. You're right about the tail on the first one. Looking forward to seeing more pictures of your newest little visitor.

VBR said...

Foxes!! Yosemite do your duty. Scare them away!

The cat are lovely. There seems to be a red male running around having his way with the girl cats!

Great post!
PS - I love your little Suzy cat widget!

Kathleen said...

My goodness - what precious furries! Hope the kitties all stay safe!

Gattina said...

Kaili Williams said...

Jenny said...

You have a veritable zoo surrounding you!

What wonderful pictures!

I suspect THEY suspect they you have a kind heart!

Thanks for sharing this smile with us.

A+

That fox may be around because of the young cats. I'd be sheltering them while he's in the distance. Good luck with them.
