Catching this sweet little bird at our feeder this morning cheered me up...
Atticus, the Hunter, has been in full warrior mode these last few days. Yesterday he caught a field mouse and this morning, a sparrow. I know full well that this is what cats do. They are hunters. But still, it bothers me. My tender heart just can't stand to hear the squeaky or chirpy pleas for help that the little prisoners elicit.
Be safe little creatures...and if you hear something jingling, that's a warning! The hunters are wearing bells! That's the best we can do to give you a chance to run, fly, scurry or slither away! Bastian is fond of catching snakes so I thought I'd throw in the "slither." :-)
Happy Memorial Day to you...enjoy your weekend.
I have two nephews serving our country right now. So proud of these young men. Glen and I will be going out to Willamette National Cemetery tomorrow to celebrate and honor those that have served, including my father and his mother and uncle.
