Miss Simba's Spring on the Porch & our Mallard Egg!


Hi Everyfurry in the Land,

It is I, Miss Simba kitty!

We are very happy to announce Spring is here!!!   No more snow we hope.

Also ... We have a Mallard Duck Egg in our yard. We DO! Mom & the Mallard couple are watching over it. Mom is not touching it & neither are those pesky squirrels. Mom has Googled about Mallard Eggs & talked to a "Mallard know-it-all", so we are good with the Egg.

Meantime, here I am catching sunbeams. I love my porch & so do all of us. We watch all kinds of critters day & night. Just recently the crickets started their evening symphony concerts. Mom says we could have froggy soloists soon - We have a lagoon type pool, so anything is possible! Frogs - what are those? Any furry know?

BTW, the best thing about our backyard is watching the Mallard fly in our lagoon. It is very Air Force like. They zoom in & brake right before they come to the edge of the lagoon.  They get very chatty when they prepare for liftoff!!  Once 3 flew in at one time while Mom was filling the bird baths! Then 2 of them got frisky & tried to make more Eggs together - WHILE WE WATCHED. YIKES!

Happy Spring to all & to you across the Big Pond ... Happy Weekend,
Miss Simba Kitty

Ps. Everyone here is happy & healthy!

Pss.  Hello to Bibi -Chan.  Such a cutie!

That is a wonderful sunspot.
We had some mallards for a while. Mum found Mrs. Mallard dead beside her nest. The eggs were still warm so she put them under one of her muscovy ducks which was broody. They stopped for several months after they had hatched, then one day they flew off, all except for one. He stayed with Mrs. Muscovy. He would fly off during the day but always come back at night. One day he never returned though and mum was very sad about it.

We had a momma duck lay eggs in our yard last year. It was fun to watch her sitting on her nest...but we never bothered her or the eggs. Then one day, they were all gone...all that was left was the shells...

We hope you have fun watching your momma duck too!

WOW! A special message just for me, Bibi?! Thank you!

Guess what, we have had a Mallard couple in our garden too this week, and are wondering whether they are considering raising a family here. That would be fun!

We love your photos, Miss Simba Kitty. The sun looks so gorgeous on your furs!

Big Purrs,
