A little visitor

Cats are fun.  Not only do they keep the mice out of the house, but every now and again they bring you a little present.  One that's alive.  That's what Gata brought me this morning, right over to the computer and then let him (or her, I didn't check) go.  I tried to get it to go out the door, but that's one of the problems with nine and a half foot ceilings, the door tops are at leat a foot below the birds flying altitude.  I tried for a half hour, even turned on the ceiling fan so it would have less places to land.  That didn't work, I finally turned it off because the bird just kept flying around and around and I thought it was going to die of exhaustion.  So I just propped the front door open and went about my business.  A couple hours  later when I checked, it was nowhere to be found.  Either it found it's way outside or hid behind the cabinets and is still there.  I'll know in a week or so if I start to smell something rank in here.  Ah well, c'est la vie.

It's a good thing that the bird didn't land hit the fan while it was moving because it's just rude to flip the bird...

Ok, that was funny! But you've driven with me, you know I have no problem flipping the bird.

You do have a thing about getting birds in your house, don't you?
It's never happened to me, but then, even when my parents and I had a cat (back in the day), we didn't have a kitty door, so all we got were mouse gifts left on the porches.

That's one of the drawbacks of giving the cat free reign to come and go as she pleases - she can bring whatever in. But I'll take the occasional bird in the house over the never ending smell and cleanup of a litter box. Fortunately she is 100% trained, even in the dead of winter she's never had an accident in the house.

All that set-up and no drum roll at the climax. Such a pity...
