Missing! [Jul. 5th, 2009|12:04 am]
Oh, look, I missed posting on the 1/4 of July. Despite the complete absence of fireworks, there was too much going on. For one thing, there's a big dead bird on my back porch. A pigeon, I believe. I know the striped cat would eventually start bringing fresh kills for the kittens, but I wasn't expecting anything that size, and certainly wasn't expecting that she'd leave it within inches of my back door. The kittens have gnawed at it a bit, but seem to prefer the dry food I leave out. I think I'll cut down on the dry food for a couple of days so mom can get them used to the sort of provender they'll have to be eating eventually anyway.

Also, the day was somewhat truncated by the fact that I didn't wake up until four o'clock in the afternoon. That's the result of being shorted on sleep for three days in a row. I'll probably have a hard time getting to sleep Sunday morning. When I do get to slep, I hope I don't dream about pigeon cadavers.

Shower off the lingering heat.

Our cat Sunni used to bring her kittens dead things, and even after the kittens grew up she'd occasionally bring something. She used to bring me acorns and walnuts, too. I don't know where she got the nuts out of season unless she was snagging them from some squirrel's cache.
