Casey 1, Mockingbird 0

The other day, I wrote about Casey, my FIL’s cat who lived with us.

As I mentioned, she was often out of doors. One day, we were all on the front porch, (must have been during a Georgia “winter!”) and we watched as Casey sprawled in the garden like a gray tabby sphinx, while a mockingbird flew over her. The mockingbird taunted the cat, which I didn’t think was wise for prey. I know I’d never tease a lion.

The mockingbird swooped over Casey’s head repeatedly, coming ever so close to her head. This taunted and provoked Casey. She flipped her tail and dug her front paws in, ready to pounce. The mockingbird relentlessly whooshed over Casey’s head, making torturous noises at her. I don’t speak bird, but I think it was a lot like, “Nah-nah-nah-ne-nah-nah, you can’t get me!”

Eventually, clawless Casey took that bird from the air and I swear she smiled, as she stood over it and cried. I don’t speak cat, but I do believe she asked, “Fresh mockingbird, anyone?”

I don’t know if they had some sorta unfinished business we weren’t aware of, but from where I sat, it was pretty obvious the mockingbird had it comin.

    I would usually be sad but “go Casey cat!” I don’t like bullies in any species.

    Birds can fly, yes, but they don’t beat cats when they get too cocky, do they, Joey? Wow.

    Clawless or not, Casey obviously hasn’t lost her instincts. The next bird better keep that in mind!

  5. You can only taunt someone (of any species) for so long before they are going to strike back. At that point you’ve kinda got it coming…

    I had a bird commit suicide on my car again this afternoon. What is it with those stupid birds? Casey the cat seems polite and full of manners asking if anyone would care for some fresh Mockingbird, good for him! He sure showed that bird who is boss!
