Cats on Tuesday: Bird Watching

Cats on Tuesday So my humans were finally able to catch me chittering at the birds on film! Unfortunately, you can't hear my chittering, but you can see my mouth moving, and at one point, you can hear my tail slapping against the chest that I'm sitting on. Bird watching is lots of fun! I get very excited whenever I see birds in our yard, and I start chittering at them, and my tail vigourously lashes back and forth. When I start chirping, my humans call it my "birdie noise."



If you have trouble viewing the YouTube version, you can try viewing another version here.

For those of you who can't view video, I have included a photo (a screen capture from the video) below.

Haha, we do that too when we watch the birds. We have got 3 squirrels that have moved into the tree outside our window, and they drive us crazy.

Gattina said...

DH you would be a very good drummer ! and probably become the first drummer cat in the world ! then your humans could earn a lot of money !

小芥 michico said...

Oah yes, I do that too when I watch birds.
Michico always concern about while I into that condition.

But it's really normal, right.
I like your tail, that really means you are excited.

Great vedio, and thank you for sharing~!!!!!!!

OH dRAGONHEART YOU ARE SO COOL! YOU COULD START A KITTY BAND...gee sorry it is dark here and the caps were on! Gene Krupa would be proud of you! Birdie watching makes me tired...you too it would seem:)

Daisy said...

That's some great bird cackling! You sure get excited. I loved watching your tail lash about. Now I think I will go look for birds...

Parker said...

I like your beat!

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

Wow, you are totally like me! I do that chittering, and I slap my tail so hard on the kitty condo whenever I see da pigeon (or two or three!)

Da pigeons don't come 'round no more....can I join you instead?

That is a great video Dragonheart!
We hope you don't hurt your tail, it sounds very loud.

Diamond said...

No wonder they called you Dragonheart. Most kitties don't have such a descriptive name. I enjoyed the tail lashing sequence particularly. I would like to see a video if the glass pane were removed. The scent of the hunt!

Ariel said...

Very cute video Dragonheart. I love watching the birds.

Deana said...

That is so cute. The cat we adopted had always been indoors. Here we live miles off the road with no one around so our cats can go outside. Imagine her surprise when she was allowed through the door to see the birds in real life. She spends hours out under the tree just looking up watching them. Thank goodness she is a bad hunter and can't catch them!

Cyclone Cats said...

Dazey is a chitterer too. She likes to watch the birdies and squirrels. And her tail does the same as yours, Dragonheart! back and forth!!

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

Wow, bird watching makes you very sleepy, I liked your yawn. Chase chitters too!

Oh dragonheart we never tire of watching our four cats chirp and whomp their tales when they spot a bird or squirrel.
So much entertainment.

Ali & Fiona said...

The Meezer Gang said...

Cheysuli said...

On thing I find so fun is that we have a second floor window that looks out at a tree that the birds love! I can get so close!

Christine and FAZ said...

I wish I could hear you chittering. I love to chitter at birds and the torch light on the floor. FAZ

Mom Unplugged said...

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

wow - looks like you really really really want to get at those birds. we do the same thing, but not quite as enthusiastically.

Luna said...

Great video, Dragonheart, I do this voice like you and I scratch on the window. My tail is also going like yours. Sometimes I can catch a fly or a butterfly, but never a bird.
Have a nice day :-)

srp said...

Miss Scarlett used to chirp at us when we were downstairs and she was sitting upstairs in the loft looking down... I think she thought we were insects. She chirps at insects too!

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

oooo that looks very familiar. Bird watching is very fun. We should telyport to each others houses. I bet we get different birds in Ohio. I love to watch different birds. Do you run to your window when you hear them chirping outside like I do? Maybe your beans will hang a feeder outside and you'll get birdies all the time!

Chairman Mao said...

hehehe, whatta wonderful video! You look so cute, chitterin' at the birdies. And that reeeeally fast yawn you did was cute, too -- I could tell you didn't want to miss any bird watchin' action from yawnin' too long!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

TorAa said...

I think it's about time you got your own bird Dragonheart. A bird of your own to play with. And as most toys, you'll need a new one - and a new one - wouldn't that be fun?

Suzanne R said...

My ancient computer doesn't do video but the photo is great -- your body language is so expressive and I can almost see your mouth moving, DH!

The Cat Realm said...

That is the most adorable chirping chittering we have ever seen. You deserve another Acatemy Award for it!

katztales said...

What an unusual looking cat you are! A Canadian-German-Sphinx is also an unusual combination. Love the blog and have added you to our favourites list.

Celeste said...

Tara said...

What a great video! I do that all the time too, and I'm still convinced I'm going to catch a pigeon, even though they are two stories above me when I go outside!
