Bye Bye, Birdie, Bye Bye

It's Friday - the day Carlton takes over my blog. Views are his own and not necessarily, in fact, rarely, shared by the blog owner.

Bye Bye, Birdie, Bye Bye

by Carlton Cat

BIRDS. What's all that about? What is the point of them? They flap about making weird chirping noises, sit in trees and make a mess on the ground. That. Is. All.

Why did the Mr and Mrs set up a bird table in the garden? It only encourages the little twerps.
I know it’s good fun leaping at them and chasing them. Their chirps turn to squawks then -  but I could live without this little amusement.

Yesterday I was even more pissed off at them than usual. I was lying on the windowsill catching a few rays when this blackbird landed on a tree outside and started chirruping away. Annoyed at having my sleep interrupted, I leapt up to catch it…and hit my head on the window. Yes, folks, the window was shut.

I fell behind the sofa. And all I could hear was that darn bird continuing to sing some stupid bloody song and, what was worse, he had been joined by a few other members of his flipping  feathered family. My head was hurting so I have a valid excuse for what happened next.

I was dazed. I was tired. I was angry… I had forgotten about the closed window. So I tried to jump through it again.

This was all bad enough but then I heard laughter. The Mr and Mrs were standing there guffawing away like a pair of idiots. I put on my most disdainful expression, held my tail up high and stalked through the door.

It's a funny thing, though. Since that little incident I haven't seen a bird at all.
