Patient Mona

Ramona has been spending hours and hours sitting in one small area of the yard just behind the house. We thought maybe it was just a nice place for a cat to sit, protected, shady. But no, there is more on her mind....

It is probably hard to see but there is a snug little home dug out of the stone wall. And on further examination, there are quite a few more.

This explains the Patient Ones endless vigil. These photos were taken starting at 9 AM and the last ones at 6 PM. In the same spot.

I know you're in there. I can hear you.

Sigh, time for a bath.


I am listening.

I get into attack position.

Gosh, where'd you go?

Sonar down.

Sigh, no banana.

There it is! I hear it! I'm gonna getcha.

Or was it over there?

No, it is in that direction.

Really really this time.

Focus, Mona, focus. Move slow. Silent.

Don't make a noise.

Ready position.

Closer, closer.

Hmmm, think I'm losing it.

Ah well, tomorrow is another day. Time for dinner.

Wow! You sure are a patient kitty, Mona. I can't wait to see what is in there.

Be patient Mona. Sometimes I watch for three days, but I always get my mouse in the end.Flynn will watch for an hour or so and then he gets bored. I never give up.

Mousie, chipmunk? Be patient, you will get them.

Poppy Q said...

Is it a mousie in there miss Ramona? I am afraid I is not as patient as yoo, I get bored.

You look so bootiful in the grass.

That is amazing patience. Better than you'd get from me. I'd've just taken a nap and forgotten why I was there in the first place. Hope you catch whatever it is you're stalking.

They say patience is a virtue. Good luck on your hunting.

She's grown up into such a beautiful girl. It's the gals who seem to be the great hunters and the boys the great cuddlers, eh?!

Goodness, isn't she single-minded? I can't imagine any of our cats sticking it out that long.
