The Return of Our Feathered Friend

Our Egret returned last weekend looking for food. I tried giving him a little ham and Puck managed to slip past me and ran outside. He just ignored the big bird and ran off to do his own thing. I decided to let Chris out too but Frankie had to stay in after what he did on his first foray outside. Both cats seemed to not be interested in the egret and the egret seemed to not be afraid that two cats were running around the yard.

I felt bad that Frankie did not get to participate. We talked about letting him out today. I said it would probably be okay if Rose stayed and helped watch him but she was skeptical so only Chris got to spend some time outside, and that was only because he escaped twice while I was coming through the door.

    We’re just fascinated that you gave the egret ham. Really? The neighbors here feed the sand hill cranes and they are so aggressive (the cranes, not the neighbors!) that we have never tried to feed the egrets. Ham would never have occurred to us. We’ll remember that!

    We absolutely cannot believe that Chris and Puck ignored that big juicy birdie and vice versa. Pretty sure we would have been all over that guy. Poor Frankie. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Our cats seem to like food that fits in their mouth, like lizards. I am surprised they didn’t, at least, investigate the bird. I am also surprised the bird didn’t back off when the cats came out.
