I had a great playdate with my friend Storm today! I got to show off my baseball park and we played for 2 hours! We were pretty pooped by the time we left, but as we exited the park something strange happened to me.
Mom and Storm's Mom were talking about meat and what have you, when Mom felt me lunge at something. She turned to look and saw an itty bitty baby bird running toward me on the sidewalk! It was cheeping at me "Mommy, Mommy!" but I let it know that I was NOT its mommy by snapping it right up in my mouth. Apparently that is not very polite, because Mom pulled me off of it and I dropped it. It ran toward me again and sat under my front legs, so I guess it thinks I'm its new Mother!
I was not very pleased when Mom said we were going to take it home. I could have just eaten it right then and there. I couldn't understand why she wanted to make me wait. When we got home Mom was hussling around the house getting towels and baby bird food and a box with a hole in... then she gave the bird a bath and put its box on top of a heater! This little fellow is getting quite the ride. I'm not allowed to do anything with it but stare at it, Mom says. She even placed its box high on the top of the book shelf, to keep it out of my sight. But I know its there, I can smell it.
So Mom says we are going to keep it and feed it until it dies, which she supposes it will. It only has just enough feathers to cover its tiny frame, and will probably not make it through the night, but we'll see I guess.
