  1. Not sure how I missed this one last March, but oh well. Numbers 3 and 4 are my favorites. This fat cat is eating her way into oblivion and loves every minute of it!

  2. I have a bird feeder in my backyard, but about 13 years ago when we moved into this house, I had a mother and her young baby come to the outside screen door and stand up to beg for food every morning. They would both back up so that I could open the screen door and throw them their treats. I did this for more than a year when they suddenly disappeared. I still miss this experience!
