The real cardinal isn't impressed at all, unfortunately. "It looks like you decapitated all my friends! I fink it's about time you decapitated yourself, Dante. Take off dat fing and frow it away!"
"Yoo makes me wanna sing!" warbles this lively cardinal.
"I likes yoo verrrrry munch" replies Dylan.
Domino is the most successful of all of the 3-Ds in attracting cardinals. The one on her head actually thinks it's a nest! Soon she could have a whole family of the red ones nestled in. But she best stay very still.
This is a picture that I took of a cardinal in our budding crabapple tree the other day. Cardinals are such gorgeous birds with their vivid red feathers and striking black mask!
I hope that all of my kitties are ultimately thwarted in their cardinal seducing endeavours, don't you? The world is better and more beautiful because these lovely birds are in it.
