My New Friend Xena

One day last week while I was doing my backyard security rounds I met a NEW FURIEND!!

Her name is Xena, well...that is what she told me her name was...Xena, the Great Kitty Bird Hunter Princess.

She says she likes hunting birdies, and my backyard was like a birdie buffet


But birdies are not for eating Miss Xena, they are for watching and feeding and protecting.

Oh No Miss Dory, Kitties like to hunt birds and bring them in to present to our hoomans as proof of our greatness.

Oh Miss Xena, how will we ever be friends?? I am sworn to protect the birdies in my backyard.

Miss Dory, you are a great birdie protector and I mayhaps I shall just WATCH the birdies from the comfort of my fence, and your yard shall be a safe haven for all birdies.
Until next time my new friend!!

Mama...did you SEE that Kitty???!!!

Hi Dory,

My mom would be very happy if me and Banjo protected the birdies but we are more like Zena and think the birdies should be snacks.


Jazzi said...

Dory Xena is very cute. Hopefully she will listen to you , that birds need to be protected. Keep on letting her know oK?


Cole said...

What a pretty kitteh! Tell Xena that she's not allowed to hunt on your lawn!

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

You'd better watch Xena. You're doing a grrreat job guarding those birdies, Dory!

Have a pawsome weekend,
Woofs and Kisses!

Hmmm...Perhaps you could get her to help you with the tree rats instead!


Stella said...

She is a very pretty cat, but Dory, I would keep a close eye on her if I were you!


Noir the Texas Tabby said...

WOW--Xena hung out for awhile didn't she? Pretty tabby, she is and balances on that fence so well. Glad you told her about the birdies, Dory!


PS. Tell your mom Tommy LOVES the photo of the doves! We have lots of em in our back yard too!

Domestikh khats shouldn't have to intrude in the food chain like that -

Good lukhk keeping your birdies safe!


JD and Max said...

Hi Dory - your new pal Xena is very pretty! This just goes to show that friendship takes all forms - if the great birdie hunter and the great birdie protector can be pals it is a great example to us all. You are an inspiration to us all. Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

What a cool friend! I'll bet you two gal pals will be birdie watching together before too long!

Um. You might just want to keep an eye on Xena - sometimes it's hard to control instinct... I'm just saying...

JackDaddy said...

I don't know. Those feline puppies can be strange sometimes! :)

BRUTUS said...

Hey, maybe Xena could help you with the squirrels! She could chase them from above while you are waiting down below! A little inter-species teamwork, ya' know what I mean?

Honeygo Beasley said...

Interesting action happening in your backyard. Birdies and kitties ... hmmm, not a good combination. But maybe all can live side-by-side in harmony, with you as the diplomatic Dory doggy girl. Well, whatever happens in your backyard is one story - but sitting on the fence, they're in between things. So ... you must be delicate in helping keep the balance.

Good luck!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Dory!
Glad you told Xena about being good with the birdies... at least the ones that come to your yard!
I hope you two are still friends!
Kisses and hugs

Hey you adorable pup! I love the "gasp" BOL. I like to look at the world through your eyes.

Teddy Bear said...

Xena is so adorable. I hope you are able to protect the birds.:)

SquirrelQueen said...

Zena is a very pretty kitty but you are right that the birdies should be watched and enjoyed not eaten.

You are a great protector of little birds. I hope you have convinced Zena to change her ways.

Hugs & Purrs,
Judy and Cindi Lou


Nice work telling XENA the PRINCESS BIRD HUNTING Warrior about the bird rules. You are beautiful and tough as nails.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

This Xena seems a little more willing to compromise than that other Xena.

Madi and Mom said...

Oh Dory not only do you have to be on squirrel patrol now you have to be on orange cat patrol!!! How dare she use her jumping powers to tease you!! If it continues I'll come down for a face to face with her.

The OP Pack said...

Hmmmm, looks like you will not only be birdwatching but you may need to start kitty watching too so your birdies are safe. Xena is very pretty but be careful.

CAT!!! Dory! A CAT on YOUR FENCE! Be careful... those things have CLAWS! I'd keep it out of the yard and just talk to it from a distance. Talk LOUDLY! The CCC

Samantha said...

WE saw her Dory! Maybe next time she visits you can convince her to go after the squirells instead!
