The Case of the Vanishing Birdie

Hallo, Effurryone!

Caspurr reporting! (Trixie is busy running surveillance on Intruder Kitty. I took the First Watch earlier this morning, and now it's her turn.)

First of all, we must report that there is really nothing to report on Intruder Kitty, except that he seems to have a healthy appetite and that he makes a lot of noise!
Trixie and I - especially Trixie - are really, really worried he may steal Mummy's affections, so We BOTH came and curled up on her bed this morning (She likes to sleep late at the weekend) and showed her how much we love her and that it would be a Big Mistake to abandon Us for this Upstart.

See!



Anyone with eyes in their head can see how Affectionate and Loving We are!

And I also showed what a Good Brofur I am and how helpful, by giving Trixie a bath.



But see what We have to compete with! Intruder Kitty gets by simply by being impossibly Cute!



Now, to the case of the Other Intruder - that Pesky Birdie!

Kitties! It has disappeared! Vanished! Scarpered! Done a Bunk! And its Egg has disappeared too!

Mummy thinks that maybe something frightened the Birdie (not Us, because We haven't been in the study at all!) and it flew off in such a fright that it knocked the Egg out of the nest. Mummy saw that happen once.

The Other Possibility, Mummy thinks, is that a Crow stole the Egg and ate it. She has seen that happen before too, on the windowsill of her office, before She retired. And it is certainly true, there are an awful lot of Crows in this neighbourhood.

Whatever the reason, the Egg is gone. And the Birdie too.

So now, maybe We'll be allowed back into the study, at long last.

It's hard to compete with a cute kitten...but you two do a pretty good job. :)

We're sad to hear the birdie egg and birdie disappeared :-(

The kitten is really cute. I think I'd worry about Mummy becoming his mom, too!

That intruder kitty is pretty darned cute, but we know for a fact that your Mummy loves you two with all her heart!

We are sad to hear about the birdie and the egg. :(

It's too bad that the birdie disappeared. Birdies are nice critters. I'm glad you're reminding you Mom what loves you are, even though she is giving some attention to intruder kitty. Even if she gives intruder some attention, you're the ones who get to sleep with her!

Darlings, I KNOW your mommy will NEVER love that baby more than you both. She will and does already love him BUT not more than you two. You are deep in her heart as she is in yours. Don't worry. Baby will find a home. Thank your momma for helping him. xxoox
