King Oscar made the rounds of his kingdom, encountering mockingbirds who didn't take kindly to his appearance near their nests. They dive bombed me, the King's Guard, twice. Oscar also visited the balcony of Noodle the cat who has been missing since April 28th. This is now two cats in these condos who've disappeared but that is because both owners allowed them to roam freely. It's also King Oscar's 13th birthday so send me some well wishes!
I let Oscar outside and he spotted Mr. Squirrel on a tree close to the balcony. Mr. Squirrel likes to taunt and tease Oscar but one of these days Oscar will put an end to that. And sad news. Bella The Dog, who pestered Oscar with barks suddenly passed away. Her owner is devastated. She's a sweet little old lady and I'm sad for her loss. RIP Bella.
A black buzzard couple has taken over a rooftop in Oscar's condo kingdom. The love birds were seen together looking down on some humans at the pool and at King Oscar and me. I told Oscar he must approach nature's Waste Management employees and ask them for HOA dues --- moist food and catnip --- because they set up a nesting outpost on his property. If they don't pay up those ugly ducklings will face punitive action!
After Oscar's morning stroll he returned to his castle only to find a turkey buzzard on a rooftop. The big bird's are nature's waste disposal employees, eating roadkill and other dead things, cleaning earth while having a tasty meal. See my other buzzard video here where they chomp down on a roadkill squirrel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiyYYeDVqLI
While walking Oscar I heard a big black crow squawking. It was if the mofo was trying to tell everyone the world was about to end. Me and Oscar walked to the front of the condos to investigate. The crow went on for a good 15-20 minutes, crowing non-stop like a psycho. As I approached him to get a closer look he fly over to the other side of the road and stopped crowing.
Oscar went out onto the balcony and spied Mr. Squirrel digging for nuts in the poolside planters. The mail lady showed up soon afterwards and Oscar hesitated in going downstairs for a walk. But once the squirell and mail lady had left the area he ventured down the balcony steps. While filming him on his walkabout I talked about the next door neighbor who had recently passed away.
Oscar spotted a squirrel hunting for nuts from the balcony and we both watched it. The squirrel looked into planters for the nuts and found a couple of them. After the squirrel left Oscar walked downstairs and had a short walk before going back inside for lunch.
A crazed squirrel climbed down out of a tree and came towards Oscar and his King's Guard, me. Oscar stood his ground as the squirrel did a psycho dance, obviously performed to ward off Oscar from the squirrel's family nesting in the tree. Oscar watched as the squirrel acted all tough and shit. I think Oscar was amused. I certainly was.
Oscar got a bout of fleas a couple months ago and after a long hard fought battle, including a flea killer pill, Revolution flea liquid drops, vacuuming and spraying rugs in his condo with flea killer spray, the fleas have been defeated. This was Oscar's first time outside since going to the vet and getting treated for fleas.
Oscar has been licking and scratching himself like mad for the last 2-3 days and so I called his vet and made an appt. for 11 a.m. tomorrow. I went to Walmart earlier and got a fine tooth comb and started combing his fur coat and I found filthy, disgusting fleas, one of them I captured alive. I placed both in a Ziploc baggie and will take them to the vet's office as evidence. I imagine me and Neighbor Jim will give Oscar a good medicated bath and will comb him silly and rid him of the flea infestation, plus whatever medicatons or topical drops he'll require.
