What a yucky day….nothing but rain, rain and then more rain.
It’s just as well Shoko is off at the Cat Scout carnival today or she’d be wanting to play, “chase and bite butt.” I really don’t like that game but Shoko insists we should play it on rainy days.
Shoko didn’t want me to say anything to you but yesterday mom was so angry with Shoko that I thought mom would burst! It was a beautiful day here yesterday so mom opened the screen door to the deck, so Shoko and I could go in and out at will. There are no mosquitos or many flies so she thought it was safe. Mom was busy blanching some beans for freezing and Shoko came rushing in and headed straight for her condo, Mom saw Shoko throwing something in the air so went over to investigate. There lay a small bird, its heart just apounding. Mom hollered,”NO, NO, NO…get away!” several times. Mom doesn’t say no often so Shoko listened as mom picked up the little bird.
She put the wee one on a small dish and walked out on the deck. The bird quickly flew away. Mom breathed a deep sigh of relief. This bird is an Immature Ground Finch and looks just like the bird Shoko had but it wasn’t as fat as this bird. Now, Shoko doesn’t jump for a bird so this bird must have been running around on the ground. This is also Shoko’s first bird….it took her 7 years to find one on the ground, I guess.
Now for my secret about Shoko. Shoko is afraid of the Cat’s Meow. You know, that fun toy. Mom brought it out of the cupboard where it was out of Shoko’s view. I was excited…..this is me being excited! MOL
Mom put the Cat’s meow in the living room for a week without turning it on. Shoko was sniffing it and sitting beside it. It was time to turn it on. Where’s Shoko? She’s behind the chesterfield poking her head out to watch it. MOL This is the big fierce hunter we’re talking about here!
