Mighty Hunter(s) Strike Again... Present at 0300

It was a quiet night.  My husband and I were blissfully slumbering.  Suddenly we found ourselves with a bird in the bedroom.  Star and Mister Kitten were gleefully chasing their new 'toy' around and around.  At one point, Star was on the kitty window perch and reaching up halfway or more up the window.  My husband grumbled, "They've brought us another 'present' and I'm not getting up to deal with it."  Star and Mister Kitten pounced across the bed in pursuit of their new toy.  "I vote that we look for our present in the morning."  Which explains why I had the broom and dustpan out after I woke up.

Mister Kitten:  "Bird?  Bird?  What bird?  I swear I didn't do it, mom!"

This morning I put up the shade to see Zaphy at the window.  Now when the window cat flap is closed, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde announce their need to have a human come let them inside by sitting on this particular window.  If you don't notice them right away, they begin to scratch on the window screen.  They also do this at my son's window.  This is due to the fact that his window is right next to the front door.  We are all happy when the cat flap is open!!

  1. Whew! At least when CC brought the live dove in it was mid-afternoon, not the type of thing I'd want to deal with at 3 a.m.! Now, the sidewinder rattlesnake, we got rid of that right quick!

  2. Ow! Rattlesnakes are not good!! My late Shadoe used to bring up snakes from the creek at our old house and play with them on the driveway. He wouldn't kill them, just toss them up in the air and bat at them. The funny thing was that when I would say, "Shadoe! Put that back right now!", he would!
