Our cats, Sophie and Zeus love to spend time looking out the windows and doors. They each look out for different favorite things. If they are in another part of the house and we call out "squirrels" they will each come running. Of course they both love watching the birds and squirrels but Sophie in particular considers that her personal job. Each morning, bright and early, she assumes her position at the back door. She is usually perched on top of their cat tower watching out for birds and squirrels. She takes her work seriously and will only leave a couple of times during the day until 5:00 PM when she considers herself off work and goes to another room for a nap.
Zeus, on the other hand, prefers to watch trucks out the front window. There is nothing he loves more than to watch the garbage truck come by each week. He always watches intently as the men dump the garbage in the truck and drive away. If Zeus is in a different room and we call out "Zeus, truck" he will come running to the front window. Sophie could care less for things like trucks and will not come.
Zeus & Sophie watching the Santa Bus
There is one exception when Sophie does like to see a vehicle driving by the house. In our small town they have a Santa Bus that drives all around each neighborhood on weekends in December. The Santa Bus carries Santa and his Elves and stops to visit with children and give out small gifts. Both Sophie and Zeus absolutely love the Santa Bus. It arrives with a police escort and the sound of sleigh bells and when it stops, often in front of our house, a line of children quickly appear to see Santa. Sophie and Zeus both love to watch this annual Christmas activity! They even like it better than the Ice Cream Man and yes, when they hear his music they come running to the window.
