From the Archives: Wrong Color Camo, 2006

cat watching birds
Cookie doesn’t really “blend” with her environment, but it works for her nonetheless.

Cookie truly believes she’s used her environment to her best advantage in stealthily monitoring the doves on the feeder. It’s unfortunate that Cookie’s feline color perceptions can’t really tell that pink and green does not mask black and orange, but what do I know, I’m just a human, and humans are famous for not seeing what’s important. I’m sure the doves can’t see her in any case, and most of the birds who visit these feeders seem to be aware that a window is between themselves and the cats who are watching them.

I have no photos posted for this day, and today being a rainy day with the lilac and forsythia coloring up I thought I’d share this photo from April 10, 2006.
