Little Black Bird

Yesterday and the morning - a nightmare!

When I got home from a dinner date, Grandpa told me that a little black bird was in the backyard, and kept all my 6 little indoor dogs inside so they wouldn’t bother it. The 2 ferocious big dogs weren’t a problem, because they are toward the far side of the yard, which is enclosed with a tall fence. The other outdoor dogs were placed in a chain linked corral.

Since I have so many trees, I also have many wild black birds. Although, these birds are as big as ravens, they are some other type of bird. Looks like this one bird attempted a test flight when it wasn’t ready. Had he/she waited one more day, I believe it would have been successful.

We constantly kept checking on the little bird, and every time we did, countless black birds tried to attack us, because they thought we were trying to hurt the bird. We didn’t let any of my indoor dogs go outside to do their business, and kept them locked up in the den.

Early this morning, I went out to check on the little bird and it wasn’t there anymore. I was so happy, because that meant that it was finally able to fly. I finally let all my little dogs go outside.

Since my dogs were kept inside since yesterday, I had to thoroughly clean and disinfect the floors in the den. When I finished, I headed to the front door to feed all my outdoor cats. Right on the floor mat was parts of the little black bird! My cats never venture to the backyard because they are afraid of my dogs, but they did sometime last night. My cats had grabbed it and taken it to the front porch to eat it. They left parts of it on the mat as a gift to me!

This has totally ruined my day, and just don’t know how I’ll manage showing off my surprised facial expression for my surprise birthday party today!

I was totally successful in my surprised look!

That is the funniest thing I seen in a long time, and to think the same thing could have happened to me!

*inhale, exhale*

breathe, babe

you know that this is how the whole planet works so, like the people that lived here before it was *settled*, give a prayer of thanks to the little bird for it's sacrifice and then let go

easier said than done, I know ... and you know more about animals than I ever will

but you torment yourself with the idea that you are responsible for beings and events that are outside of your reach


don't let down your friends ... be surprised! and have a great time =)

I was able to put the little bird out of my mind and have a great time at my surprise party. Perhaps I went a little too far with the awe’s and oh’s, but I seriously should have gotten an academy award for the acting! :o)

The little bird will never be forgotten. I've had my cats leave me countless dead birds at my doorstep, but this one hit me hard because I saw it alive and trying so hard to survive.

I would have picked him up and placed him in a safer place, but I read that once a person touches one, the mother won't have anything to do with it.

Thank you Sweet Pie!

I used to feel almost the same way, until they adopted me. :o)

I hope you someday give one a chance, because they give just as much happiness as dogs, and they are much more faithful that a mere guy! heh heh

Well at least one of those cats loves you. That is how a cat shows affection for some one: Happy birthday my friend.

I think they all love me, because I've gotten more gifts from them than I can count. This little bird was alive when I saw it, and it was quite shocking and sad to see him like I did on the floor mat.

Thank you, Sweet Pie for the birthday wishes!

Thank you for the birthday wishes!
