Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Game of Cat and Mouse

Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post weekly.  I started by publishing weather vanes from the Londonderry area, but now I've been finding interesting weather vanes all across New England.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting. Often, my readers tip me off to some very unique and unusual weather vanes, too! If you know an interesting or historical weathervane, please let me know.

Today's weather vane is from New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weather vane #204?  Scroll down to see the answer!

This weather vane is located in Bedford, New Hampshire on the Daniel Webster Highway.  It is on the cupola above the Daniel Webster Animal Hospital.  This adorable weather vane features a hunting cat trying to catch the curly tailed mice perched on each of the cardinal points.  I love the detail of the tails, whiskers and the ears of the cat which are folded forward as he concentrates on catching the little mice!  

The mice aren't visible from the highway, or even from the sidewalk, and Vincent only noticed them from the camera while taking a closeup image.  We had to zoom into this digital photo so much that you can even see the bees buzzing around the weather vane.
