So you've seen all my pictures of the squirrels running amok around our backyard and the cats doing nothing abt it. Well apparently they just don't care for squirrels. I've had tons of lizards (which I don't mind) and a few snakes (which I DO mind), but lately they've been bringing in different *presents* for us. #1 Son found a dead mole in his bedroom, just outside his closet. Ick. But that wasn't the worst one.
The worst one was a dead mockingbird.
In Baby Girl's bedroom.
And she was the one to find it.
UGH! It was bad on so many different levels. The IO picked it up and relocated it to the outside. Meanwhile Baby Girl is sobbing in her bed for the dead bird. Of all people to find it, it had to be her. This was last night. She's recovered, but the IO is NOT happy. While he is a cat person, he was a bird person first. This is the 2nd bird in a week that has been attacked in our backyard. We don't know which one did it, nobody's speaking up. And the fact that they snuck it in w/o us knowing makes it that much worse.
We have a cat door that has been removed. This will no longer allow lizards, snakes, birds or other wildlife entrance into the house w/o us knowing abt it. And it will also keep the Big Orange Cat out as well (he snuck in 2 nights ago to eat our food; the IO ALMOST caught him, but he ran out the way he came in).
This should help. It's one thing to find a dead bird outside, but a completely other thing to find one in your bedroom.
And you wonder why we need to be fast!
