Feline and Nature Friday: Kat has a new Friend

Thanks Comedy Plus for hosting

Thanks LLB Gang for hosting

It might be Friday the 13th but it is for sure a lucky day here in 

Dearest Aunty HiC!!!!!!!

Guess what!?! I’ve made a new friend! He comes to visit me every morning.

Yep, Rodney is a roadrunner, and I think he’s  absolutely amazing! 

I’ve been doing a little research on my new friend, and according to Wikipedia:

Rodney Made a Video for Nature Friday

I’ve been doing a little research on my new friend, and according to Wikipedia:

 Rodney can maintain a speed of 20 mpg for long distances. 
He feeds mainly on small animals including insects, spiders (including black widows), tarantulas, scorpions, mice, small birds, and especially lizards and small snakes. Venomous serpents, including small rattlesnakes, are readily consumed. It kills prey by holding the victim in its bill and slamming it repeatedly against the ground. 🙀

I’m happy Rodney likes me, and doesn’t want to eat me! 😹

Oh my word are so very very lucky.
I have never EVER no NEVER seen a Roadrunner in my entire life.
Does he say Beep Beep when he comes calling?

Lovingly your Aunty HiC

I also have a special Christmas Flag for the backyard birds enjoyment. Feeders are full of a very tasty Holiday seed mixture
including dried meal worms...can you say YUMMY?
A Christmas Goose. Yep I have four bird feeders and a suet cage.
Of course when I tried to capture the birds they flew the coup!!


  1. that is a fab new friend! we would like to play with your Rodney... but probably we would end like that while e. coyote LOL

  2. That is a lovely new friend you have, Kat.
    The birds are well fed in your garden.

    My word, how fabulous to have met with Rodney Roadrunner!!! Love the new flag too. YAM xx

  4. We've never seen a Roadrunner in person before. Only the one in the cartoon. We love the way his tail keeps perking!

  5. Roadrunners are super cool and cute birds.

  6. WOW Kat! You have a great new friend there. An exterminator on 2 legs. I've never seen a roadrunner. So kool!

    Boy your birds are lucky. That sounds like a good healthy mix for them in the cold weather.

  7. Roadrunners are awesome and funny burds! They are cuckoo.. Ha! We saw them often when we lived in El Paso. But this Roadrunner is special, he's your friend Kat and friends are special!

  8. Kat we are so pleased you have a new friend. Rodney is cool. So glad Friday 13th is going well in your part of the world.
    Toodle pip!

  9. How fun Kat. I've seen roadrunners once at the San Diego Zoo. They are indeed fast. And cute too.

    I love your bird feeders. We feed them here too. I can't believe all the hummingbirds we still have here.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. My best to your wonderful Auntie. ♥

  10. love the new friend KAT... love the video, since I have never seen one either. I am glad he can't get to you, since me might body slam you. MOL.. you could always hire PUP as a bodyguard.. maybe a roadrunner will come to see the goose in birdtown.

  11. WOW! Momma says she's seen lots of roadrunners, but I haven't yet. Does he say "beep beep"?

  12. Kat sure is seeing lots of new and interesting things on his wheelie house adventure.

  13. What a very special friend. We did not know they ever came out of their cartoons. Watch out for explosions

  14. Rodney sure is a cool one Kat. No doubt he told his roadrunner pals that he made a new kitty friend.

  15. We loved meeting Rodney the Roadrunner! He seems pretty brave around peeps. You're certainly ready for feeding the birdies in winter! Kudos for all the squirrel baffles too!

  16. Rodney is amazing! Mom wishes we had Rodney around here.

  17. Love Rodney.... We'd love to see a roadrunner, for real! He seems to relish being in the camera frame. What a great little guy.

  18. What a wonderful new friend you found, Kat!! Be careful if you see him with any boxes with the word ACME written on their sides! BOL!

  19. I LOVE Rodney! Please ask him to visit all of us again? nd I loved learning about him. And..I LOVE the bird feeding station outdoors! Kat...I think they may drum your Kat head with their beaks of you try to catch them. Our Robin got Blue Jays!

  20. Wow, having a roadrunner as a friend could be a lot of fun. I love your Christmas bird flag.

  21. How cool is that!! Say hi to Rodney for us!!
    Mabel & Hilda

  22. Gosh I've never seen a roadrunner either except in a cartoon! Pretty cool bird!

    Hugs, Teddy

  23. We LOVED the video of the roadrunne. No wonder a cartoon was made about them.
