But now you're gone. Sort of. You're in pieces anyway. And though no one has come forth to confess to causing your demise, I greatly suspect that the culprit possesses several extra toes..
I suppose I'm partly to blame. I didn't notice you dangling down behind the couch you rest upon. If you hadn't been dangling, you couldn't have been bitten in two. Or three... And perhaps we'd know the final resting spot of your feathery bird part.
Yes, it's true. All that was found of the victim is the pole and string. The string has a few places where it's ready to break as if it's been bitten, but not completely through. (I have all the parts, so don't worry. I know that this string, unlike the stringies, can be swallowed and cause problems so I located and removed it.)
I do have a few pictures of the last Da Bird session. They are not the best quality, which is why I haven't posted them yet. But they are cute, in a weirdly flawed kind of way. Which is why I'm going to post them now, sort of a post mortem post..
This first one is Star. And the picture doesn't work because she's in a sunbeam. She was darker, but I tried to lighten the picture so she could be seen. Didn't work that great..
I'm playing with Da Bird, but this is the only semi-viewable shot you're going to get. Ha!
Now Leo has it, but the sun coming in the window makes it hard to get a good shot. But he loves his tree, so what ya gonna do?
Got ya by the string! Bwhahaha! I'll chew you up! Unless mommy pulls you away..
Another back lit one. But something odd is going on. do you see it?
Rats! You got away! And now you're trying to invade my mancat cave??
Here's a close up. Leo's paw must have been moving so fast that the background showed through it! I don't know how else to explain it.. it's the weirdest thing! That ledge that's showing through his paw is at least half a foot behind the paw.
This one is also backlit, but because I was aiming the camera lower, the flash went off and kind of.. equalized it? Same as the one above.
You are in my mancat cave! You better not mess up my girlykitty posters! uh.. Not that I have anything like that in there... heh..
Star wandered over to see what all the fuss was about.
Star: Hmm, Da Bird is knocking around in that barbarian's cave. Maybe it'll knock everything out and clean it up.
Leo: Don't go in, don't go in, don't go in....
This last one.. Backlit, blurry, and I swear, Leo looks like he has a pointed squirrel nose.. But he's got Da Bird between his paws!
Gotta watch her, make sure she keeps going.. Don't want Princess Hissyface touching my birdie!
And that's it. No more Da Bird. *sniff sniff*
Have a good weekend, and if you have a Da Bird, hug it and tell it you love it! While you still can!
