There was Great Excitement Sunday morning!
Birdy revenge was had.
Mommy had just gotten out of the shower, getting ready for work, when she heard the "clickety-click-click-click" of a herd o'cats barreling through the cat flap, followed by lots and lots of low growling. Nothing new. But then, she thought "I don't recognize that growl", so she glanced into the bedroom, where Maui had a birdy clamped firmly between his jaws, and nearly all of us trying to take it away from him, or, at the very least, get a good sniff.
Maui didn't have any intention of sharing, and was trotting in circles--across the Catio, into the bedroom and through the house, out onto the Catio, etc etc in an effort to avoid us and consume his catch in peace.
And by this time "us" included Mommy.
Did we mention that Mommy was nekkid and dripping?
But that didn't deter her from chasing after the bloodthirsty kitty conga line. Whipping a knot in her towel, she sprinted to the head of the line while screeching at Maui to drop the birdy. Of course her caterwauling scared the bejeezus out of him and he broke into a gallop, heading for the bedroom--the doorway of which Daddy suddenly appeared and muzzily inquired what the $@!! was going on.
Bringing the action to a dead stop.
Daddy scooped up the birdy (which Maui finally dropped) and deposited him in the morgue* after a quick briefing from Mommy.
However, since Mommy is every bit as sanguine as we are she decided to shoot a few "re-enactment" photos when she got home, giving us a second crack.
We are pleased to report that flash-freezing retains all the tasty qualities one expects in a birdy!
Scouty was particularly enamored.
Mommy had to shout and chase him all over the Catio to get him to drop it!
We bet the neighbors find us vastly entertaining.
