DillBoy is no longer with us, but I've been living with 3 neighbor cats of the black and white persuasion. Little Dude, the guy rolling in the cat nip, is several years old, but the other two belong to another neighbor and I don't know their names or genders. The one outside the screened window has become buddies with Misty for some reason, and I often find the two of them hanging out around the house together. Misty hates Little Dude and the other black and white. The one I now call Buddy jumped onto the outside window sill one recent morning meowing like crazy for I assume Misty.
That's just one interesting animal encounter I've had since the wild dolphins. I haven't posted photos yet because the ones I have are of Bimini and the boat and the people and the landscape, but no underwater shots. All those were taken by others and I haven't gone thru them yet to determine which best illustrates my experience.
But around the house, I have encountered either a garter snake or an Eastern ribbon snake, twice, a fox's hind end as it walked into the bushes, a deer in my front yard which I have never seen since living here, a hawk or falcon flying over with two youngsters in tow, some kind of yellow and black bird I've never seen, a feather from which I later found while walking with Bindi. Someone suggested that the animals are making themselves visible in order to say goodbye to me.
