Sibley Birds Guide Second Edition Book from Chewy.Com

I as provided Sibley Birds Guide Second Edition Book from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

The second edition Sibley Birds Guide book  is completely revised with more than 600 new paintings and 111 rare species added, new information on behavior and habitat, and more tips on finding species in the field. The book is written and illustrated by David Allen Sibley.

The illustrations in the book are 15 % to 20 %  larger for better detail. There are nearly 7000 digitally remastered paintings for better print quality. The attention to extended detail on every bird is exquisite and extensive.

I have learned to look at birds more carefully and pay more attention to their wing patterns and markings making it easier for me to identify them correctly the next time I see one. I also pay closer attention to their bill length and the overall size of the bird and learning their songs and calls.

I have learned what kind of trees or brush attract the birds in my own backyard. Some birds like older mature trees and others prefer pine trees. Some of my birds like to eat dried up berries on some of my hedges. Older trees are a good area for birds to go that like eating insects and ants that are found in and or on older mature trees.

The Sibley Guide to Birds from Chewy.Com is a must have guide for the basic bird lover. I love how the Sibley Bird Guide shows you the pictures of the young birds and then the fully mature picture of the bird. It is interesting to see how the coloring in their feathers changes as they become more mature birds.

I have learned what kind of birds like to eat at bird feeders.  I learned that if their feathers are laying down or up it means that they are cold, scared or completely relaxed. The Sibley Birds Guide is my far the best bird guide book I have ever owned. I keep it by my chair which is located by my picture window and my bird feeders for quick and easy reference.

My cats are delighted that I have the Sibley Bird guide book from Chewy.Com. With the new guide book our caregiver can attract more birds at her bird feeder to keep us entertained throughout the day.

How To Wake Up Your Human If You Are A Cat

My name is Kohl and lay on my Mother’s pillow and meow away in her ear. I find my method of waking up my human very effective indeed. My human gets very annoyed with me when I give her my idea of a permanent in the morning. I need away at her hair and comb through it with my teeth. She gets her fill of my cat perm in a hurry and she gets out of bed and tends to all of my needs and desires. I demand fresh water in the morning. I simply stare and the water dish and she fills it with nice fresh water for me to drink ASAP. I have her trained purrfectly.

My name is Garfunkel and I lay closer and closer to my human Mother until she cannot stand the heat radiating from my little body any longer and she gets out bed. I have another method I use also as you always need a plan B. I lick and lick away at my humans hands and arms. She gets out of bed and cleans out our litter boxes and I make sure I am the first cat to use the cleaned out litter box in the morning. My human was very easy to train.

My name is Conrad and I sleep by my Mothers feet all night long. I am part Siamese so I let that part of me shine through in the morning. I call out to my human Mother in a shrill Siamese voice that could wake the dead in the morning and if she did not wake up with that I would have to call 911. I walk up by her face in the morning as I like it when she pats me on the head in the morning and she holds me close to her for a little while.

We love our human and we try to please her as much as she pleases us. We are fortunate to have each other and be in a loving and caring home. God Bless you humans for taking care of us and for letting us train you purrfectly.

Cats And The Predicaments They Get Into

My Mother had a cat years ago that jumped onto the top of a wood burning stove and she burned the bottom of her paws. Their cat let out a horrible wailing sound. They put Vaseline on the bottom of her paws and she healed up quickly from her wood burning stove ordeal.

I had a half grown cat ride on top of the gas tank of my car all the way to the college that I was attending which was about a twenty minute drive from where I live. I noticed my cat sitting on a tire in between my classes. I told the secretary at the college my predicament and she gave me a box to put my cat in. It was Sept. and I did not have to worry about him getting overcome with heat by being in my car. He stayed in the box until my last class. I noticed him looking out of my back window. We drove home and he jumped out with no effects from his adventurous day of travel.


I have had house cats climb up trees when I let them out for awhile. One of my cats stayed up in the tree even though it was starting to rain outside. When she was soaking wet she decided to come in and she gave me a look that could kill. I told her I tried to get you to come in but you would not come.

I have had friends tell me that their outdoor cats had got their heads stuck in a can, jar, hot dog wrapper, etc. Luckily all of them noticed their cats predicaments right away before they suffocated to death. They used a can opener and butter to get the can off of their cats head. They very carefully broke the jar off of their cats head with a hammer and the hog dog wrapper only required a scissors to remove it from Fluffs head.

I hope all of you and your feline friends are successful in getting out of your predicaments.

Conrad My 8 to 5 Cat

I was supposed to have Conrad at my vet by 8:30 AM. I tried to catch Conrad at 7:30 AM and he was nowhere to be found. I caught Kohl at 7:45 AM as he needed a distemper shot also. I went to my other house and caught Bella and Cali immediately.

I started looking for Conrad again. I went upstairs and to the basement and I could not find Conrad anywhere. I looked back of furniture and under furniture and on top of the furniture and still no Conrad to be seen.Conrad

I took the three cats I was able to catch to my vet for their shots. I told him I could not find Conrad. I tried to locate Conrad when I got home and he was still nowhere to be seen. Kohl sat on my lap after we got home from the vet. I read a history book for a while and then I looked for Conrad again it was 1:30 PM by now. I picked up a few items in town. I visited some people in the Rest Home.

I went outside and got some of my yard equipment ready to go. I cleaned out my cat litter boxes for the second time. I tilled my garden and I planted some seed potatoes. I came back in the house and looked for Conrad again and could not find him anywhere and it was 4 PM by now.

At exactly 5 PM Conrad appeared out of the blue and he looked at me like what are you going to do now lady the vets office is closed for the day. I swear Conrad can tell time somehow and he is truly my 8 to 5 cat.

We will be going to the vet next week and Conrad will have a surprise I will catch him at 6 AM. I  will store the cage in the room where I will be catching him three days ahead of our vet appointment. I hope you and your cat are on time for your next vet appointment.

I caught Conrad this morning after he complained to me and hid under my bed for awhile. He hid back of a card table and I was able to grab him my the nap of his neck and put him in my cat carrier. I called my vet and we got right in. Conrad got his distemper shot and his worm medicine. Conrad decided his visit to the vet was not that bad after all. Conrad rode in the front of my vehicle were he could keep an eye on me while I drove. Conrad said the visit to the vet was worth all of his trouble in long run as it will keep him in excellent health hopefully.

Conrad and the Cuckoo Clock

I had my Cuckoo Clock repaired and it did not work on the wall where it used to work. My clock repairer man told me to move it to another wall.

I moved the Cuckoo Clock  to another wall and it would work for 11 hours or 26 hours and then it would stop. There was no rhyme or reason for my clocks erratic behavior. I checked to make sure he clock was level which it was. One day my clock stopped after two hours, I was extremely frustrated with my Cuckoo Clock.


Conrad is my youngest house cat and he loves to watch birds eat out of my bird feeders. He loves to play with cat toy birds that sing or make a noise.

Conrad  could not  reach my Cuckoo Clock where it used to hang on the wall. The new location for my Cuckoo Clock was next to the bookcase in my dining room. I was reading a book one day in my living room when I saw Conrad jump on top of the bookcase and stop the pendulum of the Cuckoo Clock with his paw so the pendulum would not hit him in the head as he tried to remove the singing bird from my Cuckoo Clock. I told Conrad to stop and jump down from the bookcase which he did.


Conrad is very clever he waits until I am outdoors now before he stops the clock. Conrad has finally lost his fascination with the wooden bird in the Cuckoo Clock and the bird can come out now to announce the hour and the half hour without worrying about Conrad dismantling him.


I told my clock repair man to ask people if they have a cat before he repairs their Cuckoo Clock. He got a chuckle when I told him that Conrad was the cat burglar so to speak. My Cuckoo Clock is glad it can still announce the hour and the half hour with no help from Conrad.
