A Visitor At Merry Towers

Milou invited a guest to breakfast this morning.

Well, when I say "invited"....maybe the invitation was a little forceful, in the light of modern manners and etiquette...
For the first time my two cats met their match in the bird world. Even the normally feisty Kate quailed under his beady gaze and raucous squawk. Milou had caught him and brought him in, but then lacked the courage to finish him off (thankfully).

He escaped through the kitchen window. 


  1. ohhhhhhhhh gosh that could have been awful!

  2. Yes it could, I should imagine a magpie would contain a fair amount of blood and visceral contents.

    It would, however, have been harder to hide under a rug (if I still had such a thing!)
