At dusk each night, he eagerly waits on the front walk for one of his siblings to appear. MK and Oliver very much enjoy each other.
When MK shows up, it's a full night of play and good times, that often stretches into the morning hours before MK leaves to go back to wherever he sleeps during the daytime.
Seeing these two play brings be great joy. Some people like feeding the birds and watching them eat. I like feeding the ferals and watching them eat and play.
No question about MK's tipped status
I captured some video of Oliver and his family enjoying some early morning breakfast, using my friend Nancy's nifty little webcam setup. Sadly, I didn't heed Nancy's advice not to use the auto-focus feature, so the focus keeps annoyingly changing. Lesson learned. The webcam takes a picture every 5 seconds, so these videos are made from compiling all those still images.
I also captured video of another critter that appears lost in the yard. This critter is of the slimy, slow moving variety.
Buddy hanging with Oliver through the front screen door.
With the warmer temperatures we've been having, the indoor cats have been spending more time on the enclosed front porch. This means that Buddy gets to spend time hanging out with Oliver, his sworn enemy. Oliver has taken to napping on the concrete front step in the sun, just outside the screen door. Sometimes Buddy still goes berserk while, Oliver just ignores him and enjoys the sunbathing! Thankfully, Buddy is more often willing to put up with Oliver being nearby, just so long as he's not looking at him!
