Hey, human, where’s my bird ?
You know, the pretty bird I hunted specifically for you, and that I brought you alive on getting out of bed. Yes, the one I dropped down the stairs on the way up from the garden so you could see how it was still flying well. Does that mean anything to you ? For once, Zorro didn’t chew him off, and we wanted to play together with him and with you. In the excitement of the moment, the bird had lost a few feathers everywhere (in the kitchen, in the staircase, in the room overlooking the garden, …), but he also seemed to have a good time and even shouted with joy. You joined us, you had a little towel in your hand, you also played catch the bird, then you left, but the bird was gone.
So, Claire, where’s my birdie ?
Hmmmm…..we had something similar happen here. Do you think our Moms are keeping the birds for themselves?
The Florida Furkids
I think so : that bird couldn’t escape ! But then, what are our moms doing with OUR birds ? Purrs, Pixie
He probably just had an appointment somewhere, Pixie. We know spiders and moths who visit us often have somewhere else they need to be. He probably enjoyed visiting you, though. 🙂
You’ll sadly just have to go catch her another one sweet hunter Pixie!
Yep, that birdie had another appointment that your Mom knew about, and she helped the bird meet that deadline…er, um…well, we are hoping there was NO deadline…
Yes we play that game, with mice and bigger fare. Mrs H usually spoils it though, which maybe is because I play at 2AM
PS. I am sure there will be another bird. Around here they are just like London Busses: you wait ages then three come at once 🙂
Ugh! Humans! Mine tried to do that with a cricket I found for us last night… but it ran away before she could catch it.
What is it with humans, eh?
Uh oh, Claire! Where is the birdie?
Birds are something you have to play with QUIETLY!
Yeah Claire, where’s the birdie? 🙂
I bet she put it in a box for safekeeping because she was so happy you got it for her 🙂 XO
Did she put it in a cage? Did she make bird soup?
it was like a magic trick?
We get some presents from time to time, too … the birdies are too quick for Dougie Dog … but he manages to bring us the occasional bunny … generally destuffed on arrival, and not gift wrapped.
A gift? Not!
Hmm…..the case of the missing bird – sounds like you need a private investigator!
What a thoughtful thing to do for your Mom Pixie! MOL! Sounds like an exciting morning at your house!
Our peeps can be such ungrateful beings sometimes. They don’t even thank me for what I or the pups give to them…was your Mom a spoilsport too?
I think she may have losted it. You know the pawrents have no claws so wiggley things like birdies must be slippery
Oh, no, she didn’t… did she, Pixie? Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend 🙂
Amarula just brought me a chipmunk!! I was very happy it was still alive and was able to set it free–after it ran around my office for an hour!! Amarula was very hurt i did not appreciate her gift
Yeah, Claire! Where IS Pixie’s birdy?
Oh no, a missing bird. And you worked so hard at bringing it in the house! I hope the bird survived.
You know, believe it or not I have very little interest in birds. When we sit out on our deck, surrounded by trees with an ample supply of birds and squirrels I’m more curious about the humans coming and going below us (I think I have dad’s people-watching fascination).
I think Claire gave him/her to… Zorro.
MOL That’s so funny. Where is your birdie gawjus. Big hugs
Dezi and Raena
pixie…..wearz de burd ??!! hope full lee 1000000000000000000 milez a way !! 🙂 😉 ♥♥
WHAT?! Claire STOLE your bird? Is she not capable of catching her own? 😉
Yeah, Miss Claire, where did you take the birdie? Playtime is at a halt until the bride is returned to the rightful paws. Tee hee hee. Winks.
oh that precious face!!!!!!! Eeek…poor Claire having to rescue (or salvage or bury) the bird xoxo
