This is us relaxing on the deck a few days ago.
Tonight we’re inside and we’re not happy about it.
In fact, we’ve been inside all week.
Mom said all the angels were baking chocolate chip cookies and brownies and they all left their oven doors open so it got super, super hot this week.
She said she didn’t want us going out when it was so hot but we know that she’s the one who didn’t want to go out and play with us!
Mom said there were more reasons she didn’t want us going outside.
She said something about the Raptor Center releasing a Cooper’s Hawk youngster in our neighbor’s yard last week. He was hanging around here looking for the older hawk that’s been in this area. You see, the young one didn’t know how to hunt yet so they were hoping he would get lessons from the older one.
Hey…..I know how to hunt! I could teach him.
Shakespeare, Mom doesn’t want you messing with any hawks. She said they are dangerous for us little and not so little kitties. Here’s a picture of one!
Is that the one in our neighborhood?
Nope. Mom hasn’t seen him yet or you can bet she would be out there with the camera.
I guess we’ll just have to stay inside in the cool air for now. I wonder if those angels would consider making some catnip brownies. I could go for some right now!!!!
Well of course you would!!!

I think your mom is smart to keep you inside while that hawk practices hunting. Yikes! I don’t want him practicing on YOU! *gulp*
Love and licks,
Thanks, Cupcake. That’s what Mom said, too. We hope we’ll get to go out again soon but we know Mom will be “hovering”. MOL!
Oh yes you boys stay in the house and away from those hawks! Before Gram and Gramps moved, Mom saw them take rabbits out of the yard! Stay safe guys!
Don’t worry Marty, Mom takes really, really good care of us! Great to hear from you! Purrs and soft paw pats…
Oh we know your Mom does 🙂
YOUR DECK IS LOVELY. iT SEEMS TO GET NICER each time I see it. Sorry about the shouting. Mom told me to knock it off, shouting wouldn’t get you to hear me any easier. You live too far away. Watch those hawks…they can’t be trusted. Stay where its cool until the hawks and heat die down.
Shoko….we don’t mind the shouting ‘cuz we know you’re far away. MOL! We love the deck and Mom says we can go out with her this weekend. Great to hear from you!
We’ve had a couple of cooler days so haven’t minded being out on the catio. You need to watch out for the hawk. They like to snack on kitties. The new deck sure is nice. Hope you get to go back outside very soon. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
Mom says we can probably go outside with her this weekend. We can’t wait! Purrs and soft paw pats to all of you
Your Mom is smart to make you stay inside, hawks are scary and it is too hot for kitties.
We must admit we like the cool air inside the house.
We have hawks around here occasionally – in fact, a young (and rather stupid) one actually flew into our enclosed patio once when the door was left open! My human had a hard time getting her back out.
MOL!!! Obviously birds are stupid and cats are smart!
We would be too scared to move if we saw that great big hawk birdie flying around here.
Mom says it’s best that we not see the hawk!
Hi Kitties, your deck is great. You have dangerous happenings, too hot and a hawk. So inside is cool and safe, but the weather is changing and the hawks moves away, so everything is soon like it had to be.
Have nice, cool days inside playing and napping!
a cat in faraway Finland.
Kosmo, you are so smart! Mom did let us go out for a little last night and there were no hawks. We plan on going out with her this weekend. Hugs…….

We love hearing from you and we’ll tell Mom’s brother he did an awesome job on the deck. We really like it ‘cuz we can see all over the place!
Oh yeah…we’ve seen what hawks can do…best to stay far away from them.
And they should stay far away from us!!!
