    "Sparkly"

    I thought I'd show off my pool and deck area finally but I realized there is no "good" angle to take a picture of it...too much cr** taking up space, no where to stand for a good photo...so this is the best I could do....

    Is that a black cat sitting on the ledge?

    HA HA! I thought it was a cat!

    My cats sit by the pool. That's why I asked.

    You're probably right. Since I'm allergic, can I train the cat to live in the yard? Winter would be a problem tho....

    Re: "Sparkly"

    The cat came with the house! It was hanging on a tree and then we moved it to a post and then forgot about it. My husband finally thought to put it there more as a joke but then we saw it was working. He was going to get an owl (he was hoping to find one that would sound off every once in a while) but this worked so we are sticking with it. We move it around on the edge once in a while just so the birds thinks it's moving

    HEHE.....this is great!! What have we come too in this day and age???? Faking out birds with plastic cats?!?!?! Isn't it great!

    Our chihuahua takes care of the birds for us, incidently he also dislikes planes too...hehe So now we have no birds or planes flying around our backyard...hehehe

    Whatever it takes right.....

    BTW...frustratedmom,,,,your setup looks great. Nicely done, and that water looks almost too good to swim in and stir up. I did say ALMOST...hehe
