I'll let Mom tell this story. I'm still too excited to think!
The kitties just had an exciting time. They went out in their cat run only to find about a dozen birds in there! Well, these birds panicked and could not find their way back out. There are only a few spaces large enough for them to pass and with two cats chasing them, the couldn't find their way out! I watched helplessly as the birds, one by one, found a way to squeeze out. Kitcat actually swatted two of them to the ground but then didn't know what to do next, so these birds managed to squeeze out. One got kind of stuck in the chicken wire, half out, half in. It stopped for a rest in that position. Luckily, it was too high up for the cats to reach. It eventually got all the way out and flew away. By some miracle, all the birds escaped. Mostly because Kitcat & Squirrel had never had a chance to hunt a bird before and were just as confused as they were! They didn't know which of the dozen birds to go after first! And when it was down to just the two birds, Kitcat chased them, slapped at them, and then watched them squeeze through the wire near the ground and out to freedom. I am glad all the birds survived that ordeal. It was hard to get Squirrel & Kitcat to come back in the house before dark after all that fun.
Now they are going to beg you to go out there way more...and they are going to expect lots of more birds to chase...
Maybe those birds will wise up to the fact that there is danger inside that wired space!
Birds are hard to catch. Tasty,though. What kind of birds were they?
They were white crowned sparrows. They are going nuts all over our yard. Mom is going to check to see that our cat run is clear before she lets us out again. Don't know why she wants to spoil our fun. She said something about us not having our shots and not wanting to see half eaten birds.
Birds are hard to catch but are very tasty to eat. Maybe next time the birds won't be so lucky.
Oooh, I wish I had been there. I would love to teach those birdies who is boss! Even if they gottened away, I bet it was wonderful chasering them. All those feathers; just like a kitty teaser.
