For a while we had avoided putting birdseed out on our fire escape as the pigeons would visit from time to time and muck up the whole dove + squirrel + cardinal + tiny brown bird dynamic. Since this kitten has come along, we've realized that we need to think of ways to entertain her while we are out working. Making money. To support her cat habits.
We've begun pointing birdseed back out and I'm not sure who enjoys it more: the squirrels and birds *or* the kitten who just completely freaks out. They take up 100% of her energy and attention. Crazy chirpy noises. Tail whipping back and forth (and clearing off my bedside table).
Kitten loves Squirrel TV.
