Happy New Year Pals & Birdies

The minute M moved the  camera, the birdies all flew away.  It's typical to have 50 on the patio at a time.



This is my prime viewing spot - I'm hiding behind the blinds so they not see me.  

I sure would love to eat  one (errrr - invite) one in for lunch, but M would get mad.)


Hi Pals and "hello birdies"  (licking lips behind blinds)

Happy New Year to you and your wonderful family:.

I can't think of a better way to start a New Year off - having birdies in for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!  If only there wasn't all that thick glass separating us - I'd give them a real welcome - Mario style!  The only problem is that M would get mad at me!  I always wondered why she feeds them if it isn't to plump them up for a tasty meal!  Makes you wonder doesn't it!

On behalf of my humans, we three Roever's want to wish you a happy, healthy 2013 to you and your family!   We wish for you to be rich in the important things in life - love, health, shelter, food, and great friends as everything else is just enjoyable fluff.

We love all of you and appreciate so very much the love  and support that has been shown to us over the past 4 years.

Until next time,

Mario

Happy 2013, Mario! I don't get the birdie thing either - why feed them and then not give them to us kitties! Isn't that what they are for???

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! We love and appreciate ALL of you and are honored to have you in our lives.
LOVE the new header and look of the blog.
Mario I agree with you, what is the point of feeding the birds if you aren't allowed to eat them?
Love, Cody and "Mom"

Happy new year! I agree it's the best way to start new year with birdies on a plate :-)

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Happy cat got her fair share of birds for lunch in spite of me trying to save them. In her old age tho she settled for just watching them!!
These 3 cats are not going outside tho. The birds are safe!!
I still can't see M!!! So I didn't read your whole blog. I can't get a good picture of our birds either.

JessieJaney said...

Dearest Mario, M & D
Great post and great pics ... I too am not allowed to think of birdies as meals or playthings ... humph then why do we get given toys with feathers on them! May your 2013 be filled with love and all that entails.
Your smoochie furiends,
Jessie

neora chana said...

Happy New Years to you and your family as well! Bird TV is the best and I occasionally have gotten one, but not so much anymore. They are getting wise to me, the disrespectful little things! P. Treasure

Marg said...

Oh Mario, what fun to watch all those birds on the patio. Hey, Mario, did you know that your Mom and our Mom almost went out dancing on New Year's Eve. Wouldn't that have been fun to see. Neither one of us can walk across the room but we were going dancing.
Anyway, a very Happy New Year to all of your family. Take care.

oh hi Mario!! You visit me lots and so I am signed up to follow you, I actually thought I already did that, but guess not, so sorry. ANd a very happy happy NY to you and M as well

BeadedTail said...

Happy New Year to you and M! We love to watch the birdies and so far we haven't been able to eat one. We will keep dreaming of doing that though!

Nerissa said...

That is teasing, isn't it? Feedin' the birdies within sight but not reach.

Did I ever thank you for the card you sent me for Christmas? If not, I sure should have. It's BEAUTIFUL! Your dad did the art? He's good. Really, REALLY GOOD.

HAPPY NEW YEAR MARIO! May your year be filled with love and cuddles and nip! purrs

Mr. Black said...

Mario, I love to watch the birdies, too. But, I am outside so I also have fun running near the feeders to scare them.

Happy New Year!

peacelovenwhiskers.com said...

hehe.. sorry the birdies left when M was trying to take a picture. My cats love watching the little lizards in the back patio and the front yard and it's a real treat for a birdie or two. Glad you get to watch them. Happy New Year sweetie. =^..^=

Happy Mew Year! We know about the camera. TBT says he wants one that is remote controlled, MOL!

Texas, a Cat in New York said...

I wish you the opportunity to catch one or two (or more) of the birdies in 2013 ;-)
Happy New Year!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Oh Mario! It would be fun to have some birdies in for lunch! If you do that, call me first, okay? Cause I'll come over!

Simba left me a comment that said: Pro and Con are opposites--for example, Progress and Congress! HA HA HA MEOW!

Happy New Year to you and M.

Marilia said...

Have a great New Year!

Katie and Glogirly said...

Happy New Year, sweet Mario!!! We are so blessed to have you as a friend. What a beautiful New Years wish.

We hope you got to *invite* one of those birdies in for lunch. ; )

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Why doesn't your mom move the feeder inside and leave the door open so you can have a better view? :)

Deb Barnes said...

Our human feeds the birds too... and the squirrels. They come right up to the window and the human thinks it is so amusing to watch our tails twitch and listen to us making the funny clicking noise. Geez... she needs to get a life and stop using us for her entertainment. We agree with you, what's the point of feeding them if we can't invite them in for a snack. *Licking chops

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hope 2013 has been good to you Mario and your peeps also! My Human's been on vacation but skool starts tomorrow and so she will has to go back to work. Sigh. I've kinda liked having her home wif me.

Oui Oui said...

Happy New Year to everyone there too! Maybe your mom will give you a birdie to two as a surprise present, Mario? We keep hoping too. We'd be happy with a little chipmunk too. Thanks for your kind words when our mom wasn't feeling well. Sweet furriends always makes her feel better.

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

Mario, fanks you for being our friends after Ryker went OTRB!

We wish you the very very bestest of new years!!

Cole Cat said...

Wishing you the best for 2013! But no birdie-eating. Purrs from your friends at Colehauscats.com

Unknown said...

I am so apologetic that I have not visited before. I have just "found" your blog...I will try hard to stay in touch and visit more often...thank you for coming to visit me, Paw pats, savannah

Simba said...

Hi, Mario and peeps. Somehow we missed seeing this post of yours in our Reader. Happy New Year and a wishes for good health.
We used to have a bird feeder just like that. It was awesome. Then somehow it fell down and the part that holds the seed broke, but the dome didn't. Now we have the dome over another feeder and it is brilliant at keeping the squirrels from getting to the seed. I love the snow on it!

Kjelle Bus said...

Hi Mario and your humans !
Wish you too a Happy New 2013 :)
You sure have THE purrfect birdwatching spot there behind the blinds !
Me too hate it when there is a window between you and a purrfect lunch ;-)

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hey Pal! Nice to hear from you! Hope you and your Peeps are having a good week. Looks kinda chilly there--hope you are staying cozy. The Human 'bandoned me for work every single day this week, but I am not letting her leave the house this weekend.
