For all cat lovers – if you keep birds don’t read this
The wailing continued and I poked my head out the back door. I was astonished to see the woman in the house behind me charging down my pathway in pursuit of my feline.
“Your cat” she shouted “Your cat has stolen my bird”. I ran back into the house, chased the cat around the house, cornered it and wrestled the bird out of its mouth. It was dead and a little muddy- which was strange.
The woman is going to sue me for compensation I thought as I stared down at the slightly chewed, soggy, yellow canary. I returned to the garden and proffered the deceased to her offering my condolences.
“Your cats are uncontrollable” she sobbed. “First, I find the brown one hanging from the bird-cage terrorising my Nigel” (apparently the little burgler had entered through a dog flap), and not content with scaring him to death the other one digs him up when we bury him”.
That’s my girls!
