Don't Touch That Dial

I let Mom Julie make up the titles to my blog and I'm not sure I really know what she means by that. I think it's a human expression having to do with TV in ancient times.

Anyhow, besides the commercials on human TV, we cats also watch a little bird TV




Although sometimes they're in black and white


Always more appetizing easier to see in winter without the leaves


I sure could use a bib as I drool all over myself watching them




Then, there's butterfly TV




We don't want to forget squirrel/chipmunk TV but we couldn't find the channel at the moment, hehe..

And then..there's Fox News!




Isn't he/she cute?  A little bigger than we are, but not by much. Grey foxes don't bother kitties, just critters much smaller. And, you know what? Aesop was right. They do eat grapes! (when they can reach them, that is :) Mom Julie throws out bread every now and then and we get a visit. I really love this channel!




So, there you have it. We don't need a signal, don't need a dish, and don't need a dial or remote. We kitties are easily entertained and if the windows/doors are open, that's even better!




Hugs and a restful weekend to everyone.

Fox channel? Wow! That's extra special, Tom. We've never seen a fox.

We hope you're all doing well. Our grandpa (and uncle) left yesterday afternoon, so we're slowly getting back into our regular routine. :-)

Man, that is WAY more entertaining than our local channels!! hmmm maybe we need cable?

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Hey. Our TV doesn't tune in to Fox TV. We just get those little squirrels and those gawd awful horror channel called Crow TV.

We can't get fox TV here - we think it was available a few years ago but not now unforunately. Enjoy it while you can.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

We just commented and it disappeared - of course Mum can't remember what we told her to type - she's getting old and her excuse is it's raining!!
Anyway we don't get fax tv here any more - it used to be available but the foxes decided to try elsewhere (a better class of noms to scavenge!!)
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Brian said...

Great selection! We get all of those channels too plus Turtle-TV. Have a great weekend!

Shaggy and Scout said...

We get Fox Radio. There are red foxes (smaller than us) in the woods and sometimes we can hear them making their weird screeches at night.
We also have the Loosey Goosey Network with the big Canada Geese and the Mallard Ducks.
Lots to watch!

HA HA!!!!!
What the Furries said above:
Gawd awful horror channel Crow TV!!!
We get that too!

Random Felines said...

Wow - those are some great channels you get. We live too close to cities and freeway to get that many channels. Mainly bird tv on the balcony - and sometimes squirrel tv if they get fiesty and climb up that far. :) have a great weekend....

Great TV reviews! This summer a butterfly came up and sat right outside of window. I was mesmerized. I don't think I'd like Fox tv. Na mean?

The Teacher's Pets said...

I loved this post! Very clever to think of looking out the window as watching television! What's great about window tv is that there's no commercials! Thanks for posting!

Tamago said...

Wow how cool you have the Fox Channel! We want to watch the Fox News, too!

Repositório said...

You have many TV channels!!!!!

Mariodacat said...

Your TV is much better than ours too We don't get Fox News at all. I do get the chippmunk channel tho, and he's pretty entertaining. Then of course there is always Bird TV, which is especially good if they land on the step just outside the patio door.

Julia Williams said...

You have some pawsome TV channels there!! Our stations are quite boring by comparison.

Sparkle said...

We don't get Fox channel here, and the reception tends to be a little fuzzy on everything except Bird and Squirrel TV. But it's still better than most human TV.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Don't you love it when the weather is nice enough for open doors and windows? Then you get volume on the bird/squirrel/fox/critter tv!

Eileen said...

Wow - no Fox television channel on cat television here. You are lucky kitties, MOL

Cara n Crew said...

Mary said...

Fantastic TV channels, Tom! What fun. Foxes are beautiful, and of course, so are birds and butterflies. And you know, when a fox sleeps, he/she looks kind of like a kitty. :) I'm sure they keep you highly entertained. My four kitties mostly get squirrel and bird TV. I think they love those squirrel tails. And by the way, i want to mention that i got your Mom's book, A Temptation Tale, in the mail this week and can't wait to read it this weekend! It's a very handsome pic of you on the cover. Have an excellent weekend.

The Island Cats said...

Tom, you have a great cable provider. We don't get the fox channel, but sometimes we get the deer network.

meowmeowmans said...

What awesome channels you have there! We've only gotten fox television a few times, but we do get those other ones. Aren't they great?

Hugs to you all, dear pals!

Who needs Animal Planet with your TV channel.

~*Connie*~ said...

Please, do not let The Crew know about what wonderful TV you get or I am going to have to find a way to upgrade..

Sherlock, Ash and Traveler said...

We wish we had TV as cool as yours! ; )

Oh Dog! You sure got some awesome channels to watch!

Marg said...

Those are some terriific pictures, especially the fox. We did not know that gray foxes don't bother cats. I figured that because there was a gray fox that went under the neighbor's house where our Girl Kitty lives and she was find and we never saw them again. Take good care.

Oui Oui said...

Wow! We love the stations you get! Fox TV is pretty special. We've heard them at night a couple times, but not recently.

cattywumpus said...

Ha ha, Fox News!! WE don't get as many channels, because we're city cats. We get the Squirrel Network and the Birdie Channel. And when a moth gets in the house, look out - Skootch really goes for Moth Reality TV.

William said...

You have great TV, Tom!

I may be a bit behind, but I think you have the best idea yet! I watch squirrel TV here and sometimes there's a crow sneaking in.
