There once was a pet dove named Louie,
Who was bit by a cat called Kafluwie.
The cat spit him out,
There was never a doubt,
That Kafluwie found Louie too chewy.
-Ogden Connell aka Granny
The cat’s name was probably Simone but since she wasn’t caught in the act we can blame it on the mythical Kafluwie Kat.
The bad news is she bit him in the head. The good news is that he is on his way to a full recovery. Still on antibiotics and not quite back to his normal self, he has been cooing a bit again and is currently soaking up the sun as he spends the day convalescing in the greenhouse. In the meantime I’ve put up signs declaring our bedroom a cat-free zone and then rearranged half the house to move his cage into it. Now I’m in the process of running around with a tape measure and inspecting all our bird cage options trying to come up with a better long term plan.
Animals keep life interesting.
Free to a mediocre home, one cat named Kafluwie.
(Simone, for better or worse, is Jane’s cat and will be continuing to live with us.)
One very lucky dove, but his head may never be the same again…
Louie looks quite discombobulated by this sudden turn of events. Glad to hear he’s doing well. 🙂
