I told you all she can be mean,

though I realize some of you don't believe me. Tonight while Hubband and I were eating dinner, Miss Oribel was hanging out in the yard. I noticed that a deer was wandering toward the birdbath to see about getting a drink of water. I pointed it out to Hubband and then looked down at my plate. "Wow! Did you see that!?" "No. What happened?" Well, it turns out that Oribel had been under the birdbath and wasn't about to share (or let anyone else close to her bird feeder), so she stood up on her hind legs and took a swipe at the deer. Seriously, how often does a deer have to deal with a cat doing that?

LOL She's moved on from birds and squirrels to the big stuff.

Well, I'll have to search YouTube for the clip, but there is one of a small yellow cat, much like Oribel, chasing a bear up a tree. I mean, way up to the top of the tree. I would not be surprised that, if a bear wandered into your yard, Oribel would chase it the off.

I've seen pics of the cat chasing the bear up a tree, it was funny. Quite a character. Lke Oribel...

yep, I am pretty sure the bear-chasing cat was Oribellissima. Why should a deer be a challange ;-)

That cracks me up. That and the missed photo op of Gretchen licking the water droplettes off of azalea bloom.

So... do you need me to find a copy of your former header on my laptop or desktop?
