Cats and Birds

Our cat brought this bird home Thursday evening at sundown. He rarely does this. He has neurological problems, often trips over his own feet when he runs. He tries to hunt, but is unsuccessful 99% of the time. This poor bird happen to fall to that 1% chance. I knew the bird wouldn't make it. They never do, no matter how much we want them to. I held the poor thing and felt its heart beating against the palm of my hands. There are few times in my life when I have wished I had secret powers. This was one of them. Oh to heal the injured...

Sometimes I really don't like cats very much.

The bird didn't survive.
