The Mau Mau perspective:
Today I caught my very first bird!
It took me a while, I don’t know why…
Maybe the birds know where I live and know they shouldn’t come near me.
Because I can be a real tiger, honestly!
I was so proud of myself and I sure wanted to show it my mom.
Thank god she ran outside at the right moment. Being so proud, I walked straight to my mom.
She was very proud too, i could see it. She was speechless.
She grabbed the bird and put me inside the house.
Because I brought her an amazing present, I thought I was going to get a treat.
So I was looking outside the window at my mom, to see what she was doing.
But she let the bird go! When she got back in the house I was upset, and cranky because it felt like she didn’t like my present. But my mom came to me and gave me cuddles and kisses. Everything was just fine.
Guess I’m gonna have to catch her a new one.
The mom perspective:
You wouldn’t believe what happened today. Mau Mau caught her first bird!
I was so shocked, because I thought she could never do it.
Who wouldn’t see a big fluffy white cat you would think. Well this bird apparently…
Anyway when I saw it, I just ran like a crazy person outside.
Thinking she would run away but she actually ran right towards me.
I was so mad but I wasn’t gonna say anything because I didn’t want to upset Mau Mau.
I grabbed Mau Mau and put her inside the house. The bird was fine, thankfully…
So I put her on the ground and she flew away.
When I was walking back to the house I could see Mau Mau walking away upset.
I decided to cuddle and kiss her because I know it’s not her fault. It’s her instinct.
But I sure hope it doesn’t happen again!
