Bird Brain

Hello.  My name is Cleopatra.

The Queen on her throne

Yes, I have the name of a queen!  My humans treat me well, and one of them has even provided a throne for me to sleep upon.

However, some birds have not been treating me like the queen I am.
The mockingbirds have been MOCKING me!  Oh, the shame of it!

My mistress says they are only protecting their babies in their nests, but it has really gotten out of hand paw!  I have been repeatedly dive-bombed and scolded, and I have done nothing wrong!!  Sometimes I even fear going out the front door. And today a chipmunk ran across the front porch. It is all too brazen and a tough pill to swallow.   (Actually, the last chipmunk I swallowed came right back up.  It was nasty!  My mistress thought so, too – she even tried to imitate me.) mockingbird

I\'m ignoring you...

There are some other naughty birds outside my house, but they do not dive-bomb at my head.   I have discovered a nest under the lid of the propane tank!

the propane tankview under the lidI can hear the birdies inside (my mistress saw 4 eggs in the nest) but I cannot get to them.

Can you see the speckled eggs?

This is frustrating to me, as I do enjoy playing with birds.  I think my humans are not very happy about the nest because it is on top of the propane usage meter, which is probably becoming coated with bird mess.   It smells bad interesting in there to me!

bluebird nest amongst the lavendarAnd finally, there are the bluebirds.  They moved into this lovely home earlier in the spring and started a family.  It drove me crazy to hear the chirping when I could not get up to the nest!   When the baby bird learned to fly, my master became very upset with me.  He was convinced that I would eat such a tasty snack and when he found small blue feathers in the grass, he blamed me for the demise of a bluebird.  Good grief!  There ARE other cats in the neighborhood.  But I’ll never tell whodunit.
Now, the mother & father birds are back being very busy in this birdhouse.  Perhaps they are getting ready to have another baby?  I will be watching this situation very carefully…

  1. Hi, Cleopatra! You iz a very pretty kitty kat and you writez very very nice words. And you make you WordPressie bloggie thingie work OK. I used to have a bloggie on a WordPressie bloggie thingie but my silly hooman and couldn’t make it do whatz we want so my hooman made me my new bloggie thingy on Blogger like my hooman’s bloggie iz.

    I am sorry the nassy mockingbirdies were mean to you. That iz not nice. No birdie should be mean to a kitty kat even though we sometimez chasez birdies and some kitty kats even eatz them! (I never eated a birdie).

    Some birdies build their houses in funny places like on your hooman’s gas thingie. Some bunny rabbits do that too like the bunny rabbit who builded a nest in out back yard and my human had to be very careful not to run over it with his lectric lawnmower thingie. And my silly hooman would not let me investigate the bunny rabbit nest like your hooman don’t letz you investigate the blue birdie nest. My hooman told me that the baby rabbits had to grow up in their nest and when they getz strong they can hop around.

    So I iz glad your hooman letz you writez on her bloggie thingie and my hooman letz me write my bloggie thingie and when he go someplace I getz to explore places with our computer thingie and write stuff like this to other kitty katz.

    I hopez the nassy birdies leaves you alone, Miss Cleopatra. Now while my hooman is playing his guitar thingie and singing songs to hizself I iz going to write in my bloggie thingie about the nassy thingies he did to me yesterday lie stuff me in a suitcase and take me to see Caryl my vet lady who gived me what she sayz is a boo-ster shot. Ouch. OK?
