The Life and Times of Bo Kitty

A pounce gone wrong

I have had the most humilating experience happen to me. It's bad enough that I had to even MAKE such a foolish mistake, but to have it witnessed by mom? I'm so embarrassed. It all began last night, as I was
perched on top of the cat cave, looking out the window. A bird suddenly landed on the outside of the
window, and I was overcome by my predatory instincts. I wasn't able to resist thousands of years
of feline instincts that told me to "get the birdie". However, my plan had serious flaws.
I sprang up into the air approximately 3 feet, slamming my body into the glass. Now why do those darn
humans put glass in windows? It makes it very hard to pounce on the birds and squirrels. Not only
did I plaster myself upon the window with a very loud sound, I fell to the floor. Thank God I managed
to land on 4 paws. I would have never been able to recover from the shame if I had also fallen with
a splat. Mom immediately began to laugh at my plight. Would you mind explaining what was so darn
amusing? There was nothing remotely humerous about the bird/cat encounter. I just hope that the
story doesn't get out into the animal community. Mom scooped me up and began to soothe me. I was
meowing in sheer rage at the stupidity of my hunting mistake. My hunting skills have been dulled by
playing with that darn stuffed bird with the chirping sensor! I was too mortified to return to the top
of the cat cave, but I kept an eye out for that dastardly bird. Just wait...he'll come back...
and I'll be waiting!!!!
