Guess who came to visit again??? Well, I guess I gave it away in the post title. But our orphaned deer friend stopped by our home and invited him/herself into our back yard.
Since I don’t the know gender of our little fawn I think I’ll just refer to him/her as Bambi.
Hope did offer little Bambi a little fresh grass but wisely he kept his distance a little bit from us today.
Please don’t call Animal Control on us, as we didn’t try to make contact this time, other than Hope’s first grass offering. Just mainly stood around the yard and quietly took pictures as our deer friend visited. He stayed for over an hour.
Even Hope’s bouncing around didn’t scare Bambi off.
I think he was too intrigued by his new friend.
I don’t imagine too many cats are dumb enough to let a deer get this close.
But Pumpkin the Ninja Cat isn’t the brightest cat.
Bambi appeared very curious, and I believe wanted to make a new acquaintance.
And so I watched for a good 20 minutes of nose touching, then bounding off; followed by sneaking back up on each other.
In nearly all corners of our yard.
Sometimes Bambi would be more interested in lunch.
And when Bambi lost interest and started eating our weeds again, Pumpkin would wait patiently.
And before you knew it Bambi would be curious again.
So Pumpkin gave Bambi a tour of our backyard.
He even took the little Prince/Princess under the trampoline.
And introduced him to even more native terrain. Yum, Fresh Spring Grass.
I think Bambi appreciated the kindness of our silly Pumpkin.
And, I think, Pumpkin appreciated the nuzzle in return.
So this post is dedicated to my little Arizona nieces who are just as enthralled with Bambi as I am.
Now I’m back to the de-hoarding – But Bambi’s visit was just the rejuvenation I needed to have a wonderful day. Guess what another room DONE! I promise to post pictures soon.
