I recently put some birdfeeders around the porch to keep the seed dry in the snowy/rainy weather we have been having. Bad kitty has figured this out and has found new sitting places. The birds perch on the flagpole before swooping down on the porch banister. I added some birdseed to a planter for the larger birds. Bad kitty definitely has a bird's eye view.
In the picture below, Bad Kitty is actually lying in a hanging flower pot attached to he banister and resting his head next to the sitting pot, all of which have bird seed in them.
Here kitty, kitty.
