A Barking Cat?

As I sit here at my computer this morning waiting for a batch of Hawaiian Baked Beans to finish cooking, (I'm going to a family picnic in the Sutter Buttes this afternoon!) I was looking around at things on One of the entries on there had to do with a video of a cat that thinks it's a dog. The video isn't a new one, it's been on youtube for about 2 years now, but this is the first time I've seen it. I love it! lol

The funny thing is, one of my two cats occasionally will make sounds similar to that.. Especially if they're sitting in the window sill and there's a hummingbird at the feeder just outside.. lol

Oh.. And in case anyone is interested in the Hawaiian Baked Bean recipe, here it is.. So easy to make and so yummy.. I've never brought home leftovers from a potluck when I take them.

1 31 oz. can of pork and beans
1 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple
1/2 cup sugar (white, brown, raw.. your choice)
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard

Mix together in a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for an hour or two. Basically, bake it until the juices are thick and gooey. I doubled it for the potluck picnic today... Baked it for about an hour and a half last night, then put it back in the oven this morning to finish it off before I put it in a thermal bag to take to the picnic. My kitchen smells delicious this morning! lol

Oh yeah, another thing. I'm taking my camera with me this afternoon, so hopefully I can get some nice shots of the buttes.. And I'm hoping that the wildflowers will be blooming up there... :-)

My kitties are not a consistently vocal, but they make the same chirping like "bark" too. And it's usually while watching birds.

Cats are funny sometimes, aren't they? One of mine was sitting on the back porch making the funny little noises while watching a bird on the lawn. Then one of the chickens that run wild in this little town came into the yard and my cat got up and ran inside the porch.. lol, I guess the chicken is too big of a bird.
