Visitors in the Backyard.

When Nancy and I were living in Prescott, WI we lived in small neighborhood of about 95 homes. Now we're 5 miles east of Cable, WI in a small development. I can see 2 other homes, but they aren't occupied full time, they're summer homes. When the trees leaf out, I might not be able to see any homes.
Nancy enjoys nature and likes watching birds at the feeders and the antics of the squirrels. We mounted a corn holder to a tree in the back yard and the squirrels go crazy for it. We had seen deer tracks in the driveway and in the snow in the back yard, but they never made an appearance until today.

The night before, I was sitting in the kitchen and I heard one of the cats growl. He growled just like a dog would if you tried to take his bone from him. I looked out the patio door to see this about 10 feet from the house...

The cats are really enjoying their new home. There's so much to see outside. The cats will sit motionless for hours watching this....

  1. Awesome. You are lucky you have so much wildlife to see.

    It is cool how the kitties like to watch everything. Great entertainment for them.

    It would be weird to look out and see a fox. I've never seen one outside a zoo.

    When Basil starts growling and it is dark out we can usually tell there is a big raccoon on the deck. They like to stare at each other through the patio door. I think a family of them live in our giant sequoia out back.

    You must really enjoy your house with so few neighbors. It sounds great.
