Fall is Here! Time for Squirrel Watching on Cat Window TV!

by Deb at 12:10 AM • Cat Humor17 Comments


We all know what summer TV can be like for us humans – a vast wasteland of repeats and sub- quality programming. The same can be said for CWTV (Cat Window TV). Sure watching birds, lizards, and bugs outside the window on a hot day can cause a tail to twitch, but after awhile, where’s the drama and intrigue? Yeah, the Blue Jays squawk a lot and the Morning Doves like to build nests in the hedges, but it’s relatively tame viewing and that’s why my gang is so happy fall is here because it means the squirrel channel on CWTV is back for a new season!


Squirrels are the premium of all premium channels for a cat because these bushy-tailed clowns can provide edge of your seat entertainment for endless hours as they chase one another around the yard for a measly peanut. Will they eat the peanut? Will they bury it? Such cliffhangers…

And the boldness of the plot lines – just how close will that squirrel come to the window to taunt the cat? And how many times will it run back and forth across the road for no apparent reason other than to give humans a heart attack for fear they will get hit by a car. Stop doing that, squirrels!


What? Did someone say it’s squirrel viewing season again?


Hmmm…. What to do… What to do? Do I run across the street? Do I sit as close as I can to the window and torture the cats that are watching me?


Who am I kidding… it’s a no brainer! Cat torture it is!

Speaking of humans, while it is CWTV, humans seem to love the channel just as much as the cats do. At least I know I do. When my gang settles at the window to watch the show, more times than not, I am with them too. I just find squirrels so irresistibly cute that I can’t stop myself! The best is when I go outside to feed them and Jazmine will watch me doing it, completely incredulous that I would dare to come so close to the furry enemy!! It’s compelling TV, people, it really is!


Hey… what the heck? Is that Mom out there feeding the squirrels?


Okay Jazmine… you caught me… I am feeding the squirrels… I can’t help it… they’re so darn cute! And hey… great closeup of my hair… someone needs to make a hair appointment and soon…


Thanks to me, this little squirrel is completely at ease and  Jazmine settles in for a long day of CWTV binge watching…

How about your cats – do they have a favorite channel on CWTV?

    Jazmine is such a sweetheart💗💗
    I love watching the squirrels and Chipmunks to. My cats sit in my bedroom window and watch them constantly also.
    Have Fun !!!!

  3. Ingrid King says:

    Squirrel TV is a big favorite at our house, too.

  4. My Mama is just NUTS about squirrels! She loves them! I don’t get to see them much since we live on second floor of a condo/apt building, but Mom said that Angel Bobo used to LOVE them when they lived in Cleveland. Mom’s apt then was on first floor, right next to the woods and Bobo’s “Squirrel” TV was amazing! He got to see deer, rabbits, squirrels and birds all of the time!
    I’m deprived.
    Love, Cody

    I bet your cats are surprised you are that close to squirrels and aren’t attempting to eat them. 🙂

    We have squirrels year round here too, and the refrain is, “Where’s the barbecue sauce”?! I can’t convince them they aren’t songbirds so I add peanuts and corn to other feeders for them. When the feeder is empty the squirrels stand outside the window and yell squirrel profanities and gesticulate things I probably don’t want to translate. When they try to raid the bird feeders I yell that they’ll be cat food if they keep that up, but they still follow me around the yard and I like to toss peanuts in the shell for them to catch. It’s pretty exciting for all of us.

  7. We don’t have Squirrel TV, it’s a pity… But we enjoy Bird TV ! We have Horse and Cow Channel too, but it’s a little bit boring for us cats… Purrs

    I get year round squirrel TV here. They eat the peanuts in the bird feeders and I run out to chase them. If the door is shut, I have to make do with chattering at them.

  10. We love Squirrel TV this time of year. They go a little nuts! 🙂

  11. Ellen Pilch says:

    Our Daddy doesn’t let us watch squirrel tv, he bangs on the window and scares them away.

  12. We love squirrel TV! We get to watch them most of the year here. Pretty soon they’ll be getting ready for winter.

  13. Marg says:

    Squirrels are great fun to watch and they can get quite tame. It does make for great TV for the humans and kitty kats Have a great day.

  14. That squirrel is SO CLOSE, Jazmine! What fantastic photos! Squirrel TV is one of our favorite channels, too, especially when they get bold and run across the window screens. Irresistible. We also like small bird TV. The duck channel is bo-ring, but it can be hard to change the station.

  15. CATachresis says:

    We rarely see squirrels in the garden and they are not grey, they are red! Just been reintroduced here on our island! Austin, of course, is a participant rather than a viewer lol xx

  16. Brian says:

    We have a good many crazy squirrels here too, even with a bunch a feral kitties out back!
