Invitation For Lunch

Cyndi:  A little closer, Jan.  I can't reach the treat from here.

Merci:  You couldn't reach the treat on the front porch last week either.  Are you getting shorter?

Cyndi:  Of course not.  You're joking with me, right?

Merci:  Yes, I am joking but about a bird, not a treat.  The refugee from a thunderstorm on our front porch. 

Cyndi:  It was a bad storm.  I wonder why the bird was trying to fly in the wind?

Merci:  Maybe it was blown out of a tree?

Cyndi:  We'll never know.

Merci:  But it was nice that for a short time we could shelter a scared and weary bird.

Cyndi:  You know Marcus.  He wanted to invite it for lunch.

Merci:  I've never figured out whether he means "for lunch" as a guest or "for lunch" as the lunch.

Cyndi:  We'll probably never know that either.

We are joining the Pet Parade blog hop with hosts Rascal and RoccoBionic Basil, Barking From the Bayou and Love is being owned by a husky.


  1. That bird looks tasty... I mean, friendly.

  2. Hari OM
    ...and pawhaps best if you never find out either! Well done on the sheltering. Hugs wags whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. How nice that the Funny Farm was a place of refuge for a weary traveler.

  4. Poor lil birdie treat, all by his lonesome on that porch. You shudda offered him a towel to dry off and some chicken soup to warm his tasty bones. Or maybe not chicken soup since that might be pawlitically insensitive.

  5. Oh, that Cyndi is the cutest little muzzle I've seen today. What a darling. And so nice of the kitties to 'invite' ... er...give refuge to the birdie from the storm. Glad he was up HIGH.

  6. Hmmm,
    on a gust came in a bird,
    to be the guest...
    from the stormy blast
    to have a safe rest.

    We think he/she was smart to stay up there out of reach...

  7. Aww, that feather, bird guest looked ruffled. Hope he got a good bit of rest before he went on his way and maybe, will tell his bird friends about the great accommodations! Maybe you'll have a bird party in the future!

  8. I'd chase that birdie down. I like to think it's getting in touch with my inner cat. Happy National Dog Day!!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  9. We hope the bird found its way back home again after the storm.

  10. How nice that Marcus wanted to invite it for lunch :)

  11. We have a little bird that shelters under our patio. It always startles me but I'm also happy that it has a safe place in a storm.

  12. Aaaaahhhhh! With 3 cats we seldom see birds like THIS!!!

  13. I think that would make a good snack!


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
