I was allowed out again yesterday. It was finally dry again outside: no more rain! I don't like rain that much you know. Anyway.
As I stood on my 'perch' to look out over my domain, my eye spotted something. I stood on tippy toes to see it properly and I thought I saw a bird. Well....
I just had to catch it didn't I? No way was that bird allowed to be flying away. So, I wiggled my bum a bit to get in the best position and I jumped. Of course Mara's flashy thing was there as well, but she caught me a bit too late: I had already landed!
I did catch the bird, just like I told you I would!! What do you say now?!
Note from the editor: when I found what she had caught, it turned out to be a dead magpie. Probably a young one. It was already decomposing and had bugs and slugs on it already. Mother or father Magpie were close by. I don't know how the young magpie died. Either it wasn't strong enough to fly yet or it was caught by Miss Oswin (or another cat) earlier in the week and left.
