Possum Provoked

I counted 22 little birds in the tree outside our window, all chirping loudly and taunting poor Possum:

"Goodness, Possum," I said. "Those birds are behaving very rudely to you. Are they wrens, finches, or sparrows?"

"I would love to know the answer to that myself," he replied. "So why don't you let me go outside so I can climb that tree and study them more closely?"


  1. Luca cat empathizes with Possum, and agrees that window sills, although necessary for one's edification, are severely limitating to both urban and rural cats. His pet peeve, his true aggravation, is when other less restricted cats mince by his perch. Luca has attitude;perhaps he is a bit like the movie character you earlier referenced!


  2. Tell Possum that boneless chicken breasts are a lot easier to eat and feathers don't get stuck in your teeth...


Spam goes right into the trash but I appreciate relevant comments from non-spammers (and I can always tell the difference). I do my best to follow up if you have a question. ALL spam, attempts to market other websites, and anything nasty or unintelligible gets deleted instantly. The cats and I thank you for reading — and please feel free to comment on what you read.
