Watching & Waiting Wednesday

Hola kitties! I'll bet you're wondering how my peeps are dealing with the quarantine. I'm gonna describe to you a day in the life of the peeps now that Pop is retired. This is what I have to put up with. With no baseball being played, the peeps call the play-by-play from the view out our window. If you read my Facebook page, you already know about the bikini-clad bathing beauties on the balcony next door in 50ºF temperatures. But there's more!

Watching & Waiting Wednesday

The peeps quarantine day so far. They took a five-mile hike around the new park in our town and saw real live geese on the lake. The park is a few years old but they've never been so it's new to them. Who knew there was real live geese in our urban jungle? Pop tried to take pics. Big fail. On the way home, they stopped to pick up some Chinese food. Meh. How could they get Chinese food that I don't like? When they returned home and finished eating lunch, the real excitement began!

Watching & Waiting Wednesday
This is the first time you're getting to see our new windows with the
10-inch frames. This is also the first time I've had window whiffies
out these windows. And, yeah, this is as wide they open from this
side. I'll be describing them more maybe next week.

They noticed Pink Shoelaces* and her three kids sitting on the garage roof in the Vampires' yard. The peeps felt they had to do play-by-play as the family frolicked around. Finally, Pink Shoelaces jumped off the roof and helped the two younger kids down. "Brian" stayed on the roof. He was scared to come down and obviously too big for mama to help down. Mama PS kept waving her arms and signaling for him to come down. He perched perilously on the edge. The father was no help at all. He must have been her second hubby and not "Brian's" real father. He couldn't care less. Then the family started to leave without "Brian" who was still on the roof. After the longest time, somehow "Brian" made it down. The peeps missed the exact moment cos …

at the same time, there was a pure white dove on the old factory roof. Oh, how they waited to see that dove fly. I guess they expected Prince to come down from the clouds singing about when doves fly or something. More play-by-play. When they got bored, that ended the peeps exciting day.

Watching & Waiting Wednesday

Yes, it is any wonder I bite when I have to put up with such childish nonsense? While this was going on, the ignored cat slinked into the bedroom and went to sleep.

Watching & Waiting Wednesday

* You may recall, the peeps have nicknames for all the neighbors to protect their identities cos they don't know any of them.

I hope your humans are doing something more useful during the quarantine.

Don't forget to read the secret messages by hovering over the pics.

It's hard to keep track of our neighbors, since we don't have a good, clear view of them. Also, because my human doesn't care about them at all. They probably think she's weird, because the only times they see her, I'm out front with her and she's taking photos of me.

Your peeps have to get their entertainment where they can find it in these different times. I also give people some nicknames, usually the ones who irritate me.
We don't have near neighbours but having a livery yard we get people coming every day to ride and look after their horses. Most are fine, but you always get one who thinks they know it all and try telling you what you should be doing. They are the ones that get the rude nicknames.

Brian said...

You've got lots more to see that we do CK, but we do have feral-tv and the birds and geese to watch!

Eastside Cats said...

CK, I've TOTALLY FORGOTTEN to add snarky comments to my photos!!! WHA?!?
Thanks for reminding me.
The Hubby sits in the windows to watch the neighborhood too; I think he should make up names for everyone, 'cause I certainly don't know them.

We're not doing anything more interesting here. It's what it is. We are now your entertainment.

Tell them to make sure they get the right Chinese food next time. If you don't like it they shouldn't bring it home.

Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. My best to your peeps. ♥

MOL your peeps are having more fun than our Mom!! We think it's strange that your window only opens up like that. is it to prevent people from falling out the window??

Pumpkin here. That's more exciting than the play by play at our house. Mom gets up, gets washed and dressed, gives us our treats, fixes her breakfast, then sits at the computer working until dinner time.

The only exciting days are the days she gets moving fast enough in the morning to take me for a stroller ride.

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

We only have a clear view of one neighbor. And they have a dog! Mommy still works all day, which is lucky for us because we still have treats. She goes for a walk around 5pm.

pilch92 said...

We have names for some neighbors too, but luckily we get along with them all so they are nice nicknames. You are far more interesting than anything outside though. XO

The Indulged Furries said...

The funny thing when I read this is that I'm not sure if you're talking about human or animal neighbors!
Most of our neighbors are nice enough, but one is a bit annoying and apparently thinks the neighbors enjoy listening to their conversations and music as much as they do. But that's suburban living.

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

Can't blame your peeps for watching but you should always come first, CK. Poor Mudpie is feeling very neglected lately too.

The Island Cats said...

We hardly see our neighbors so not much to watch there.

meowmeowmans said...

CK, at least your peeps keep themselves entertained. That's pretty important with the rona. I was trying to figure out what you meant when you said on FB that TW was amazed that you had geese in your town. Now I know! :)

Three Chatty Cats said...

I have to admit that I watch the neighbors too. And Woodrow watches the neighborhood cat. Sounds like a nice walk for them, though.
