Loss of a tom cat friend and defender of the bluebird box

Squirrel plays and shakes a fist atop the bluebird box.... twelve round stones Blue feathers strown empty nesting box today... old man Tom rest

Awww! How sad. We have squirrels in our back yard too. Did they eat your baby birds? My Lily-Cat died rwo years ago and our Meshak mourned her loss as we did. Now we have a new little kitty. A blue point Siamese named "Ninja". Really am enjoying him. Sorry I haven't been around much. My puter keeps freezing on me and when I type it keeps skipping lines so my bottom line suddenly appears in the middle of another sentence. God Bless, JB

Life has it's twisted little tales. Hindsight tells of what prevails. The evidence of savage need. All we can do is plant a seed.
