Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie- Society of Feline Gardeners




This week, The Society of Feline Gardeners celebrates Hunt Week!


It was freezing cold all last week, down to 15 degrees.  I was kept from my garden by my over protective caring mother.  I begged and I pleaded until she finally let me out.  Yes, I resorted to machine paws on the window.



Free at last!



Nothing much is growing in the garden this time of year.  I'm pretty sure the seeds we planted in the greenhouse went into shock with the cold weather.  All I can do is hope they come back to life when its a little warmer.  So what's a garden cat to do?  Hunt!


That vishus squirrel won't know what hit him!  What are you hunting in your garden this week?



See ya later!  I got squirrel to catch!

We're letting our squirrels get big and fat. Then they'll be so slow that even poor ole heesh can catch one.

Go get him, Jonesie!!!

Kea said...

Wow, look at you go! Did you get Mr. or Ms. Squirrel? Some of the squirrels here can be quite nasty; I've actually seen one *chase* a cat! Hilarious. But I'm sure you'd never let a rodent get the better of you, Jonesie.

Simba said...

Not only are you a "master" gardener, you are also obviuls a "master" hunter as well.

Simba said...

Oops, meant obviously.

Brian said...

Whitey said...

Austin & JayJay go out, but they've never gone after the squirrels around our house - they are plain mean! I don't go out - why hunt for food and do all of that work when Mom supplies all the food I want daily?? Austin & JayJay call me stuck up - what do you think??

Nico, Austin & JayJay :)

Sammy and Andy said...

Jonesie, The Streak!!!!! Our Mom is wondering if anyone at your house is old enough to remember that song....The Streak.

Did you get him, Jonesie????? We're sure hoping you did. xxxxxxx

Junior and Orion said...

Chasin' squirrels looks fun!!! Did you catch him?

CCL Wendy said...

We have the same problem here, but with lots of snow, too! Dante was out hunting squirrels just like you, Jonesie, but he didn't have much luck either. I think sometimes just the act of hunting is so much fun, you don't actually need to catch the squirrel.

Furkidsmom said...

Did you get him???

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Jonesie you look very cute up agains the window like that! It has been very cold here too - not much growing here either!

Buuuuuuuuuurrrr, how cold outside it is for you. I am glad that you have such a nice warm coat of fur to keep you warm.

Eric and Flynn said...

Good luck with the squirrel hunt.

Fin said...

Oh Jonesie this is a great hunt. Best of luck catching Mr Squirrel! Thanks for playing.

Nothing says Christmas like a good squirrel chase!!

Glogirly and Katie said...

Stay warm!

We didn't get to post this week because our Mom is sick. We'll try again next week!

Sónia Mendes said...

Oh, be good to the squirrel, he's almost as cute as you are. Just scare him a litle bit and then let him go. That's what I'd do if I had a garden like yours. Instead I just can watch the birdies out of my window.

Did you get him? Did you get him? We don't get to go outside.

Purrfect Haven said...

wow, serious chase. We would love to hunt, but Mrs H HATES that (she is a veggie and hates all killing - even flies - honestly!) so we have to pretend to be mellow and only chase live things when she looks away. Darcy & Bingley
