BB and the Feral Cat*
by BBshot

9:42 PM BBshot: Eventful evening feeding BB.. She molted another tail feather... Then she ate 1/2 of the quail while on my glove sitting on the front porch just chillin... That's when it happened... :-O
9:43 PM BBshot: BB went into full attack posture and was mad as heck... There was a feral cat across the street coming out of the bushes and she wanted a piece of it...
9:45 PM BBshot: While I still had 1/2 of a quail for her in my hand she decided she wanted that cat and bated like crazy towards it...
9:47 PM BBshot: Well she was tethered to my glove and couldn't go far but she was trying like heck to get to that cat... The cat saw her and turned and bolted behind a house... BB regained her position on the glove

9:47 PM gpeterson: Phew. No cat carnage.
9:47 PM LuvBirdKY: Cat carnage would make a lousy bedtime story
9:47 PM vaultqueen: My cats were reading along.
9:48 PM TexasWOmn: vault, did you cover their eyes?!
9:48 PM BBshot: and just kept looking for the cat... I finally got her settled down... I hate feral cats....

9:48 PM vaultqueen: Of course. You know they love to read - stand on my newspaper...walk on my keyboard...
9:48 PM BBshot: The End..... :-)


Story Notes:
  • If you didn't guess, BBshot is a falconer and BB is red-tailed hawk. :)
  • Definition of the term "bate" from The Modern Apprentice: The action of the bird attempting to fly from a perch or the fist while attached by a leash. The bird may be startled and wanting to leave, may have seen something attractive and curious to fly to it, or may be impatient to be flying or hunting.
