Wednesday Word—Burds*

What the Hell-o Kitty you lookin’ at, Woman?

*with apologies to the Trout Towne Tabbies

The television around here has been incredible this year. I don’t mean the boring stuff Pop watches every night while TW is helping me visit your blogs. I’m talking about the new, improved Burd-tv stations I can tune into outside my window. While I don’t get the exotic stations some of you get in Florida, mine has gotten a hunnert times better. Lemme tell you why.

I live in a very urban area. From my window, I can see loads of trees in the distance but there are only three close by. There's one little house where they have a yard with a nice tree. Since I’ve lived here, that house and yard have been either empty or neglected with weeds growing six feet high. Apparently, the cool burds don’t like that so all I used to get was some Car-tv on the helix and Pigeon-tv. Yeah, those caca-dropping rats with wings. Late last summer, a young couple with kids and two big woofies bought the house.

They immediately started cleaning the yard. Then, to my peeps’ horror, they cut down a good portion of the tree. GASP! All winter the peeps looked at the tree and wondered if it would bloom again. It did! Not only that but the new folks cleaned the yard and planted all kinds of seeds and plants.

The burds responded. They came and brought all their friends. They sing the song of their people from early morn until night fall. I have to say I’ve spent more time on the window sill this spring and early summer than I ever have. I’ve been cackling, cooing, mewing and singing the song of my people. I love my new Burd-tv channels.

Today I drove TW crazy running from one side of our 65-in. wide window to the other. She kept saying “I must be blind cos I’m not seeing what you’re seeing.” I guess she is blind or she had the wrong channel on.

How’s your Burd-tv this year?

Ours is not so great cuz we live in the middle of a field, but we do have meadow larks and some great mouse tv!
We love that first pic of you, CK. It's darling!

Our Burd TV are pretty good - we has tons of flowers and plants and even has a burd feeder.

Molly Mew has burb tv and squirrel TV. Sometimes she sees a poodale flash by and squirrels go bye bye.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Wow, CK! I gotta come over. My burd teevee has only one channel: All pigeons, all the time. Phfft. *I* want to see *your* channels! That picture of you--wow, I am a smitten kitten.

Our Bird TV isn't very exciting, I'm sad to say! Just sparrows and some mourning doves. Bleagh.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Oh boy! New and improved bird TV! Lucky girl!

Austin Towers said...

Looks like your upgrade didn't cost a thing!! It's HD and 3D and everything!!

The Daily Pip said...

Our dining room window is low to the ground which gives us chipmunk TV!

Tamago said...

Sounds like you've got great TV! Glad your neighbor moved in and set up a great stage for those burds :-) We've got cardinals coming more this year and entertaining my boys. Have a great day!

Simba said...

I am so glad you have a nice burd tv experience, CK. We have a burd feeder station, so plenty of burds here, but for some reason I am not that interested in them. Go figure. You would just LOVE it.

Marilia Bavaresco said...

have a nice Wednesday!

Melissa and Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

That is so exciting, CK! Our favorite channel is Squirrel TV, and it's really bad so far this year. We're thinking they may have all drowned :(

Hannah and Lucy said...

We don't have much bird TV as Mum won't let us go out in the garden if the birdies are about. She's very mean!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Quinn and Angel brandi said...

We are too far up for bird tv and we look out at trees that look like little playtoys we are so far up!

Brian said...

Our Bird-TV is still good even though the primary channel is Feral-TV! Love that photo CK!

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

We live in a bird sanctuary! So we've got lots of birdies to watch on our BURD TV channels.

Anonymous said...

Nice that you get lotsa channels on BURD-TV. Humans never appreciate the same stuff we do.......!

Hugs, Sammy

OMC - that would be awesome!! our bird tv isn't that great....mom has tried putting a feeder outside our balcony but that doesn't seem to attract too many birds

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

That is pawesome! We're lucky to have a couple of trees right outside the window. And we have a big house right next to our building and the birdies sit on the roof. Since we're on the 3rd floor we can see them purrfectly.

The Swiss Cats said...

Our Bird TV is pretty good, but we only have that channel, or Horse Channel. Purrs

meowmeowmans said...

It sounds like you finally got the primo package Bird TV, CK! Yeah! Ours is pretty good here -- Zoe is the most dedicated watcher in our house. :)

CK, you're looking especially gorgeous. Thanks for stopping by and for your ongoing support of our cats. Merlin needs extra purrs right now.

The Florida Furkids said...

We have super Bird-TV (and lizard-TV) and it sounds like you have the upgraded package! MOL @ making TX crazy!! We love to do that too.

Robin Mudge said...

I'm glad to hear that you now have real Burd TV! It was awfully nice of the new neighbors to install that for you. Cinco and Manna have Miscellaneous Water Fowl TV. This can include geese (mostly of the Canadian variety), ducks, loons, swans, herons, and more.

Great photos of you CK. I am glad you have bird tv, we have a hummingbird tv right now.

Flynn said...

I didn't think it was possible for you to look even more stunning, but you do in that first photo. The Bird TV is pretty good here too. I am glad you are enjoying you channel upgrade.

Katie Isabella said...

You look adorable!! I swear you are cute as can be! hey, did you go on the Tribute Ride?

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

I'm so glad you commented on my FUNdraiser, CK! I couldn't remember the name of nip and bones and I wanted to get something from them too! Yes, Surf and Turf will be up and running live for about a month, but you know I never close any of them so it's always available! Now, off to nip and bones! :D

The Island Cats said...

Yep, our Bird TV has been pretty pawsome this year too. As long as the mom keeps the feeders filled.

The Indulged Furries said...

How exciting for you that you have great bird tv this year. I've had mostly only two channels this year (scrub jays and mockingbirds). The little finches seem to be missing and they're much softer on the ears.

Vanessa Morgan said...

What a lovely composition.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Good evening darling--Well, i can't really say "good," now can I? And I have to go BACK on the 21st to have a cleaning and worse, some extractions! My teefs are apparently a hot mess. AND they stole my bluds and my pee while I was ASLEEP! I thought our Governor had signed a consent law so that Peoples could not have their way with you when you were passed out. Right? Honestly, it's a damn outrage. I could use a little company. The blue pillow is vacant, hint hint.

Jean Neilson said...

Wow, you get much more burd tv than we do. There are hardly any burds around here. I think Da Trouts of TabbiTowne scared them away.

That is a stunning photo of you, CK! We are so happy your Bird-TV has improved so dramatically and that you are enjoying your view, that is so awesome!
