well….. tragedy has struck the farm.
i was waiting to share this news but…when the second event occurred last night i figured might as well kill two birds with one stone. when you read the rest of this story you will not find that pun funny.
tragedy #1. tickles is dead. yes mr. tickles was returning back from a late night hunting excursion and was savagely killed by a car on 24th. it was so sad joe called me early in the morning while i was out of town to break the news. he buried mr. tickles under the tree in the back where according to joe “it will provide everlasting shade for his spiritless body”.
tragedy #2 unfolded before my very eyes last night. i was giving my friend jess a tour of the barns because she had not been to the house since the snow has melted. black foot savage was following us around the yard being annoying. we went in to the smaller of the old barns and there was a barn swallow stuck in there flying around. it kept going everywhere but the side of the barn that was open and tinging into the windows. it would fly here there and that is when i noticed black foot savage getting all hunched up. then i realized he was going to try and catch that bird. ooh shit. so i’m stomping around trying to distract the dumb cat while jess is trying to help the bird. but the bird was too stupid to be helped. black foot savage got a running start and jumped at the window then jumped at the other window tricked the bird and caught that bird in mid flight right in it’s mouth. i’m freaking out like a little girl and jess is trying to get the cat off of the bird when we realize…the bird no longer has a head. “insert “we have no food we got no money, OUR PETS HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!” i’m still freaking out and jess is like umm we are just going to leave it. until black foot savage decided to parade that carcass of a bird everywhere we went. i now hate that cat even more.
on that note. happy friggin thursday.0
