Camera Critters: Heidi's Visitor


This is Heidi. When she isn't hiding she likes to sit in the bay window of the dining room.
Hmmm....wonder what she sees out there?
Looks like Heidi and Thumper are having a staring contest.
Do you think Thumper looks like she's pleading for Heidi not to come outside?
Later I saw her coming down the walnut tree.
When she got close enough to the ground she jumped!

An adorable set of photos. Nice closeups!
We named the squirrel pair that visits our deck.
And when they were young, our kids named the deer, lizards, frogs, turtles, etc that visited our backyard.

I love your jumping Squirrel pic! And Heidi has such a precious face! Do you know who won the staring contest?

judi said...

That last pic is fantastic! That is so hard to do, capture action. I like the others too.

Beautiful pictures. I love the squirrel staring back at the cat. We don't see many squirrels where I live, mainly rabbits.

Rhea said...

Very cool photos! Heidi is beautiful. I love the photo of the cat watching the squirrel especially.

Melli said...

Oh what great shots! Especially the last two! But I liked the variation in the point of focus too with Heidi looking out - and then to what she sees! Very nice!

George said...

Heidi is a beautiful cat, Thanks for a beautiful sequence of camera critters.

The Texican said...

My old cat had a taste for squirrels. Seems like yours may be thinking about a meal too. Pappy

June said...

There's a children's story here somewhere! Great eyes Heidi has!

fishing guy said...

Carletta: Very neat captures of your cat and squirrel. I always thought Thumper was a rabbit.

Tammy said...

Hehe I'm glad the squirrel made it away safely. Gorgeous cat!

Skittles said...

Wonderful pictures!

My dog stares out the window all the time. But she barks at almost everything... plastic bags, leaves.. if we had more squirrels, she'd probably bark at them. LOL!!!!

Hi Carletta. What a sweet, sweet face on that kitty! Reminds me of my childhood cat. Me, I've got cows today.

Heidi, next time you see that little squirrel, you call me & we can chase it together!

Mamapippa said...

Heidi and the squirrel are really friends ...

Dianne said...

Heidi has such a small sweet face with amazing eyes!!

My Siren ducks under the window sill when he sees squirrels and then he peeks up and makes odd clucking sounds at them

it's very funny

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Heidi is BEAUTIFUL! Love your photo story of Thumper. ;-)

Reader Wil said...

Thank you for this lovely story of those two animals.

Twisted Fencepost said...

Adorable pictures, Carletta!

Rose said...

Your Heidi is pretty!

One of my cats is bad to come watch out the window here for Mama Squirrel or birds, and if they are out here she goes running to the door if she hears someone come in or out.

Rose said...

I mean to tell you that here sometimes we will see a flock of turkeys in one spot forever, then suddenly they are not there any more. I guess they move on to new territory.

I'm glad I didn't miss these!

George Townboy said...

So cool!! I had a cat (Amy) that looked just like Heidi, and a squirrel that looked just like Thumper. (Not the one I cooked when I tried my Seventeen Squirrels In A Pot recipe!)

AppleDebbie said...

What a cute series of photos! My kitty loves watching the squirrels through our living room window too. Heidi is adorable!

Babooshka said...

So many to choose from. Has to be the squirrel running down the tree.

The pictures are adorable ! I love squirrels and don't even mention cats ! Heidi is so cute while watching the little squirrel, what a nice TV program, lol !

LadyBanana said...

Lovely shots, I bet if she had been outside there would have been a good chase!

Kerri said...

Oh, these are fantastic! LOVE how you caught the squirrel jumping off at the bottom!

storyteller said...

What a fun visitor for Heidi! Love this series of photos you've shared. Sorry to be visiting so late, but I'm doing what I can to catch up ... skipping Ruby Tuesday even. Thanks for visiting Happily Retired Gal.
Hugs and blessings,

Raven said...

What a great series. I think Thumper was probably asking Heidi if there was any chance of coming inside and warming up. Don't know if it's been as cold in your neck of the woods as here. It was 4 degrees all day Sunday and colder on Saturday. Today it was a balmy 20 degrees.
