This is one of the 6 photos I have so far managed to take for my project. But I have a system in place now & a spreadsheet. I feel much better now that I have a spreadsheet.
This is Thor, who is HUGE in real life. Seriously huge. He fully takes up and actually overhangs the seat of a kitchen chair when he lays on it. Here, he is on my bed, reading my Kindle. I had set it aside to listen to Mayhem reading “The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog” in various funny voices and the screen saver kicked in after a couple minutes. It a random screen saver. This time it happened to be birds. Thor, who had been laying next to me, shifted his bulk so he could look at the birds.
If you have cats you have probably seen them watching birds through a window. If so you have probably heard that strange semi-chirping noise cats sometimes make while watching birds through a window. I’ve always assumed it was a “Wish I could chase & eat those birds” sort of running commentary.
Thor started making those noises while watching the screen saver. He stared at it. He touched it lightly with a paw. He sniffed at it. And he chirped at it the whole time.
The screen saver does not move. It’s just a static picture of birds. I think after awhile it changes to another picture but that didn’t happen while Thor was watching.
Of course when I reached for my camera to take his photo he turned to look at me & that broke his concentration. After that he sort of watched the Kindle out of one eye & just chirped occasionally until I picked it up.
Still, days later, he will come over to the Kindle when I leave it on the bed, check it out and turn around in disgust when it isn’t showing birds.
