A difference of opinion

We received this cute guy as a holiday gift from our 5-year-old nephew. It's a birdhouse made from a gourd. To enter the birdhouse, birds would have to fly into the cat's mouth (which our nephew thought was hilarious). It IS very clever.



However, someone at our house was not amused....

Hee hee!
I SO want one of those, Ms.M. Your nephew has a very adult sense of humour.
I'm sure your cat will catch on soon and learn to sit on the bird table with mouth agape.

My nephew would love that, too! And as soon as I saw the thumbnail in my reader, I thought of your pretty kitty. I'm glad you posted her photo as well. {She's so gorgeous!}

That is too cute. Have you given it a test drive? Will the birds go inside?

Ms M said...

Dive: I think his Nanna helped him choose it. Our cat would think it "undignified" to sit with mouth agape. But she'd gladly hut them (except we keep her indoors).

Macie thanks you, Shell. She IS a gorgeous kitty.

Hiker: We haven't tried it out yet, but with spring coming on we might.

I'm hoping for a follow-up post when the birds have made it their home.

Petrea: We'll have to see what happens. With my luck, hornets will try to build a nest inside. They tried building a nest right over the doorway last year.

What a cute birdhouse! Just funny to think that the birds would have to fly into the cat's mouth. It's hilarious indeed. My grandson will love it too.

Hi Sonia, I'll bet your grandson would love this birdhouse, too. It brings a smile to everyone, especially little kids.
