Can one escape the feathered wings of justice?

Birds And Crime
rspb: giving nature a home


For the robbery of The Backyard Bird Feeder

If the perpetrator of this high crime is not caught or does not voluntarily come forward in due time, the local bird community will launch a boycott to shed light on the injustice of a outrageously long standing tradition of ignoring rodent thieves simply on the basis that some might deem their outward appearances to be ‘cute’.

Representatives from the local bird community spoke with their sheriff in town, who goes by the name of ‘Owl’ and protested:

“We think that it is definitely not okay to let some animals possessing fluffy tails and big eyes get off entirely without punishment while others of a more round and feathery shape have to make do with the leftover scraps. Winter is hard upon us and everyone should have an equal chance at consuming food. After all, no-one deserves exclusive access to the entire bounty that resides in The Backyard Bird Feeder, and that includes, no intimidating eye contact, tail twitches, or beady eye stare downs! We have had enough!”

Another bird flew in on the impromptu congregation and introduced himself as Mr. Chick A. Dee, who tipped his black top hat before boldly adding,

“If our demands are not met within one week, our protest will result in a backyard deck completely devoid of feathered life for many years to come, or perhaps, even forever. Despite how many times some of us might like to show off how many feathers they have stored on their plumage,” a pointed glance to a nearby robin, “we can’t survive on body heat alone. We need sustenance, and we need it now!”

The robin in question puffed out his red chest even further and looked away from his accuser in barely stifled indignation.

A finch named Mr. Gold hopped up beside the ruffled robin and chirped,

“It is high time for someone to take care of these ruffians, I dare say their becoming quite a nuisance in my day to day routine! One minute the bird feeder is full, the next, there is nothing but empty seed shells on the floor and the empty metal frame laying broken on the ground. Why they are so intent in eating seeds is beyond me, but at least save some for us!”

And so the bird council split up, each with their own ramblings of horror filled seed stories, taking their individual, respective paths to their nests and settling down for a long wait for the perpetrator to be turned in.

Reward: The heartfelt gratitude and dear thanks from all birds who use backyard bird feeders

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
