Mad Mum Mancat Monday
Somehow we seem to have inexplicantly upset The Mum with our Mother's Day gifts of chewed daffodils and a trashed kitchen. We can't understand why, after all why go to all the effort of cleaning everyday if you don't enjoy it. Humans can be so stupid sometimes!
Anyway, since we seem to have upset her we thought that would would go all out in the gift giving department today. The Mum just loves watching the birdies that visit our garden, especially the Blue Tits that are nesting just under our roof. For those of you that don't know, this is what a Blue Tit looks like...
Juicy, erm... we mean cute, yeah... cute. So we got The Mum a Blue Tit fledgling, but somehow it's batteries had runned out by the time we gave it to her. She didn't look too impressed. There's just no pleasing some people. Next year we just won't bother!

P.S. The Blue Tit 'fledgling' only had downy body feathers and the flight feathers had yet to develop. As the Blue Tit family are nesting in a gap where our roof meets the wall it would be impossible for the cats to rob the nest. I believe that this unlucky baby was unfortunately pushed from the nest. As baby birds grow there isn't a lot of room for moving about in the nest and sadly some do fall.
