The silly human found a pile of old metal coat hangers in the basement and was on the way out the door to put them in the recycle bin. As she stepped out on the deck, what greeted her (quite close to the deck) but a large buck (male deer) with 8 points on its horns. The deer and the human eyed each other, and the human blinked and returned to the house figuring the coat hangers could be recycled another time. Of course, the human then tried to photograph the deer through the kitchen window, which did not work out quite so well as she’d hoped.
Nonetheless, the deer went back to eating some apples no longer in their prime that the human had put out for the wildlife, then it lay down by the deck and stayed for an hour or more.
Let me tell you, the feline guardians were not missing any of this. You can see Macaroni all jazzed up looking out at this large animal that has clearly invaded HER yard!
Eventually, several hours later, the deer did get up and leave. And the kitty guardians prevented the silly large beast from entering the house. Such good watch-kitties!
