"Look What The Cat Dragged In!"
Now, I'm sure you have all heard this saying at one time or another..."Look what the cat dragged in!"
Look what the cat dragged in - A slightly derogatory comment on someone's arrival
More cat-sayings and their meanings found here!
Well, I had quite a shock the other day, when I went to plug in my iron.
There in the corner, among an extension cord that had fallen onto the floor, was THIS!
In the unlighted corner I at first had trouble making out just what it was...but soon enough I could plainly see. :( It was a female Cardinal...my favorite of all the birds I see around our place!
What an unsettling thing this was!! :(
This little bird was not Tattered or torn- but lifeless just the same!
I have 3 cats as most of you know...and they are indoor/out-door cats! I can't imagine how that 'gift' to me was brought in without me seeing...because I have to open the door to let my cats in! (I have no small ~ dog/cat~ door!)
...Can't be sure which of my cats did this but I think I can safely eliminate old Tiger.
He's de-clawed, for one thing...another- he's old and not too swift...another- he's the most gentle soul I know!
On the other hand ...General is a hunter-and so is young Lucy!
This is the nature of cats ...this hunting thing...and I try to look at it in that way!
~~~But -why the pretty birds, guys?~~~
