The glorious sound of the magpies woke me up this morning at some early hour before ten am.
Caw, Caw, caw, and another one going caw caw harmoniously.
I sat up, pulled my CPAP machine off my head, it is for sleep apnea.
But in the morning wearing it, with hair all in disaray, trying to shake the cobwebs off,
all the while wondering what the hell is going on outside.
I don't swear very often, but I had to today!
And there sits my cat Stinky,
calm as can be looking outside the window,
her tail swaying side to side,
sitting contently watching.
We leave the screen open so she can go in and out,
so out she went.
Great, now some peace,
All of a sudden I hear bang and in comes the cat banging into the window
but thankful to be in, I think she almost lost one of her nine lives.
I go to grab her and Mr. Magpie swoops at the window,
Oh Lord, this is something right out of a horror movie.
I fall back to the bed having had a Cataplexy spell,
but it does not last very long.
I lunge for the window and slam the screen shut.
What a relief.;
The cat lays on the bed as if to say Thanks for saving me.
So a little time passes no sign of the Magpies,
no sound of them either.
and Stinky is back at the window meowing to go outside.
Okay the coast must be clear.
As soon as she was out the window
I spotted one flying up from the ground and the other was sitting on the satellite dish
at the next door neighbors.
I kid you not,
my cat is sitting on the fence,
a magpie swoops down on each side of her,
The cat jumps straight up in the air,
hangs onto the fence with her two front paws
and then leaps through the screen opening.
Amongst all of this was the caw, caw, caw
of the two demonic magpies.
I had closed the screen, shook my head and thought to myself,
Those crazy nasty mean --vultures--,,,,I mean magpies!
I ate lunch then I decided to take a nap as I usually stick to a schedule
because of my condition of Cataplexy.
The screen is closed, The cat has settled beside me.
I put my CPAP on, I close my eyes.
Deep breaths, meditate, getting sleepy,
Caw, meow, phst, caw, caw,
My eyes flashed wide open and now I see the same Magpies
chasing another cat in the nieghborhood.
Have they all gone insane or have I finally lost it myself.
I was no longer in any mood for these pests from hell,
So picture me, Cpap is off, Orange clogs go on,
I open my door, like what was I going to do,
SHHHSH them away., or spray them with a watergun.
Really what was I thinking?
I looked around, did not see anything.
Hours later at 8 p.m. I can still hear them outside,
My cat is still at the window.
The caw, caw, caw, is getting further away,
and for this I give thanks..
Do you have any crazy bird stories for me.
I would love to hear them.
I mean hear about them!
I hope you have a great day.
