Mancat Monday


Moe - keeping watch

....Update.....
Some cats have been asking what I am looking at so intently. Well, this morning mom heard a loud 'bang'. It sounded like something hit our window. We both went to check. This is what we saw.


Our storm window was broken, so we think the dove was trying desperately to get away from the hawk and accidentally ran into our window. After that, it was an easy opportunity for the hawk. Soon after we got the picture, the hawk flew off with its 'catch'. Mom figures it is either a Sharp-shinned Hawk or a Merlin - they are both about the size of a Blue Jay.
