Goodbye, Tree!

Yesterday some men came to cut down the neighbour's tree. Mummy was a bit sad because she hates to see trees getting cut as she loves nature (so do I). There aren't many trees around here because we live in a city and that also upsets her.

One day we will move to the countryside (my mummy's dream).
Anyway, the tree was very tall and old and dangerous, so perhaps it had to go. It didn't look too good swaying in the wind and it was a bit scary watching it do so from mine and Mummy's bedroom.

I wasn't scared at all by the noise and though I was a bit scared at first seeing these strangers up a tree and seeing all the branches falling, I went up close to the window to get a good view. Mum says I am a very brave kitty!

A bit sad to see the tree go (won't be able to see the birds up close)

Watching 


Good bye tree (can you see the man up there cutting it?)

Watching from upstairs too

Oh, noes! Loosing a tree is traumatic! No Birdie TV!
Hope you have other tree channels!

Awww you are indeed very brave lovely Athena!! We hope a new tree gets planted in this old tree's place!

Take care

We're sorry the tree had to go, but if it was sick, it probably was for the best. We lost a few trees in our yard...they were sick.

your Mummy is just like mine. My Mom cries when she sees trees being cut down. Even when they have to go :(

As the Island Cats said, if the tree had sickies, it's better for it to go. That way the other trees are alright.

Whoa, that is one big tree, we're glad they got it before it fell down. Can your mum get you a bird restaurant to put outside your window? We have one and a bush and we get bird tv all the time.

Cherry City Kitties - That sounds like a great idea! I'll see what Mummy says.

Thanks for visiting our blog! We hope you'll come back and see us again. Mom said we need to have a tree cut down in our backyard. It's too close to the house and it drops HUGE branches whenever it gets really really windy. She is afraid one of those branches will come through our roof! Now that would be scary!!!
