Mum came home all happy yesterday. She reckoned she had petted a horse at work.
"You did not pet a horse. How would it get in the office?" I asked.
"OK. It was a pony and it was in the car park," she claimed.
"What's a pony?"
"It's a small horse. Her name was Beauty and she lived up to it," mum said.
"Smaller than a cat?"
"No. Much bigger than a cat. Children can ride them."
"I do not wish to meet a pony," I told her and mum says I won't but that actually horses and cats generally get along fine. Her company have just started having a stables for people with disabilities as their chosen charity (I'm assuming cat charities weren't one of the choices)so they sent the pony to say hello.
Then mum suddenly said, "oh no you don't!" and shut the cat flap. Josie was there with a bird in her mouth. There was some discussion as Josie was very keen to bring the bird in for us all to enjoy but mum wasn't having it. She's funny like that.
Josie reckons she caught the bird but mum said that as Josie had literally just gone out, unless the bird had been walking past the cat flap at that moment and had been caught without so much as a squawk, then no, Josie didn't. Mum reckons another cat caught it and Josie found it or it died of natural causes and Josie found it. Either way she wasn't having it indoors.
Eventually Josie gave up as she wanted her supper and mum went out and once again kept the bird for herself. When I catch one I might not let mum know..

Your Mom really likes to eat birds, doesn't she. A bit selfish she is. We have some nesting on our patio but I'm only allowed out in my harness now. You can't catch birds when you're in a harness.
Those mommas - always stealing the birds for themselves.
