So what's new in your world?
front door mat is a parakeet, I reach down to pick it up and the darn outside cat springs 30 ft. into the air and the chase is on. The parakeet appears to have its wings partially clipped so it is not reaching altitude and flies into the neighbors yard, I rip off my socks so I don't get them wet and off I run to the neighbors, Cass now has the parakeet in his mouth, I grab him by the scruff of the neck and yell at him to let the bird go, he spits the bird out and hisses at me. I have the bird in my hand and it then attaches its self via beak to my hand, so I open hand to get him off. The bird flies to the corner of our gable, I am in pursuit as is the cat. Then up and across the street the little one flies, so across the street I go, thinking maybe it belongs to our neighbor, knock on her door, nope no parakeet but she gives me a towel and I move to the corner of her house where cat is crouched and ready to pounce, parakeet is in a clump of dead branches about 6 1/2ft up. I reach for it and it falls to the ground, I swoop it up in the towel. It's little heart beating 210beats a min. So I am standing there with parakeet and go oh great now what do I do? 3 cats in our house is probably not the welcoming committee it is hoping for. I took an old wicker cat kennel we have and placed it inside with the towel. There it is this morning and that damn bird seems to be fine. Of course after it is all said and done, I have adrenaline coursing through my body and sleep is not something that is going to come quickly, LOL. Kizzie is standing guard and gives me a strange look every time it moves in the kennel "like did you really bring me a bird?" So I will get some fliers out today and see if I can find out who it belongs to. This morning at 5AM my friend Linda brought a small cage she had over so I could get PocoUno out of the wicker kennel, she also brought some seeds, bless her heart. So I will get fliers out and go door to door later when the sun comes up. Have a great Wednesday. Hugs
