Cat who enjoyed the weather reports and birds on TV; going back in time for Feline Friday blog post

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Hi. I’m joining the Feline Friday blog hop held by

Today, I’m sharing some very special pictures. They are of my mother’s cat, Chipper. Chip passed on some years ago, but, boy did he have a good life. Very smart. Loved to play with golf balls; hence the name. Also enjoyed watching TV, including the weather reports. And what a sweetie!

Here are some pics of him:


Here’s what my mom wrote about Chip recently:


Chipper, a great orange cat, was an inside guy but he would stretch out on the foot of a bed and watch an old VCR tape about attracting and feeding Backyard Birds by Roger Tory Peterson again and again. Besides the taped birds’ sounds, there was an interesting background sound of the tape winding/unwinding that might have attracted him. He really liked the action once he realized that they were real birds landing on the feeder!! Didn’t try to touch them on the screen…simply settled in a comfortable spot and watched.



  1. Aw, what a clever and smart cat Chipper was. I love his name and love that he enjoyed watching television.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous weekend. ♥

    • My mom reminded me he used to hide his toys under the refrigerator too, which made me smile thinking about the collections he would have under there. Thanks for stopping by! Hope you’re having a great weekend!
