Last night or rather morning, as Kory and I peacefully slept we were woken by a very loud crack, smack, smack, scratch, clunk! Right outside our window. Naturally, I immediately assumed someone was outside our bedroom window prying the frame off. In any minute they would be inside our room, gun to our heads, demanding we hand over our all our money and Zoe.
So I said "Kory do you hear that"
Kory: "Its just the rain and wind" groans pulling the covers around his shoulders and rolling away from me.
Me:"No, its way louder, and its only coming from that window, I think its some kind of animal"
And then I see its shadow, as it plops onto our window sill. The outline of the stupid black cat that hangs out in our garage and leaves streaks on my car window. The cat that has left not one but two dead birds in my yard, and now was after the babies in the nest by our window! The nest that kept Kory and I from taking down the grape vines and Ivy off our house, because we saw the nest and didn't want to harm the babies or mama bird, or take away their home. That same nest was now being attacked by a predator. It wasn't my house that was being broken into but theirs.In the morning I went to see what damage this big stupid cat had done to my windows, and what did I find? THREE claw holes in my brand new screen! And a bunch of crying baby birds. I can only hope and pray that that stupid cat didn't take the mama, or one of the babies. Normally I would not be so upset over a screen, but its not JUST about the screen it A) woke me up and for that reason alone I hate it. B) I already hate most cats, because I get really upset that they climb up into trees and kill baby birds and C) I hate how they ruin everything with their claws! Now we have holes in our BRAND NEW screen, and if we ever open those windows, bugs will get in... the annoying kind, like spiders, and flies, and bees.
I know I shouldn't be this irate about the whole thing, and I know if it was a raccoon I would have been more forgiving. But I can't help but worry about the baby birds I heard chirping from inside the nest.I am not asking anyone to hate cats, that is not my intent at all. But maybe you can see why I detest them so much. I know many people will be upset by this post, many of my cat lover friends, I am sorry.
