Protecting the birds from the cat

This was one of my favorite activities for summer 2015 when I spent the summer at my mom's home. Protecting the birds from the cat!

Her name was Gladys and she was our beloved adopted cat and they were the birds out there just trying to protect themselves and their young ones from Gladys.

You see, Gladys was relentless. She was very swift and not very willing to listen to good advice, so to speak. She thought that she could catch them whenever she pleased.

I'd be sitting in Mom's dining room working away and then I would hear the birds outside on Mom's patio making low, sharp sounds. The sounds were urgent-like and I would know that something was wrong.

So I would rush outside and onto the patio and there she would be, sitting quietly looking up into the trees. Most of the time I would not even know that she was there but Mom would see me going towards the patio and she would look through her kitchen window and tell me that Gladys was prowling around.

As soon as I would open the back door Gladys would be off like a shot, running down the steps without a sound and I would be left to shout at her departing back.

This happened several times over the summer until the day Gladys gave birth to seven lovely kittens. No more time for Gladys to disturb those wonderful little birds.
