A wire report from my son’s house:

In a bold mid-day assault, a
team of commandos from the Acorn Liberation Front, the militant wing of
the Squirrel Union, has successfully staged what appears to be the
biggest attack yet upon bird feeders in the vicinity. A coordinated
effort against the "Squirrel-B-Gone" feeder has left it weakened and
vulnerable. Forensics experts are reviewing the debris but preliminary
indications are that gnawing on the top where it fits into the feeder
base caused a disconnect, plummeting the base to the ground and
spilling hundreds of valuable black oil sunflower seeds upon the
ground. A team of fattened seed hoarders descended upon the scene
before authorities arrived, plundering as much as they could before the
site was secured. Despite the recent successes of the ALF, additional
anti-squirrel resources have been diverted and most seeds have been
recovered from the ground and placed into a new feeder with a screw-on
top. Bird Spokesman "Blue" Jay McFlutter described the scene as "a
tragic loss" and called for a squadron of hawks to be mobilized to deal
with the threat. Unfortunately, the hawks did not arrive on time and
instead a herd of loud children arrived on the scene to keep the
squirrels away. Jumpy Jones, ALF Press Secretary had no comment, as his
mouth was full of stolen sunflower seeds.


Her Big Day!

After being elected President of the United States and Canada as well, Miss Catt is prepared to take on the very real challenges of her elected office today. 

Miss Catt rose early (and many times) to prepare for the ceremony.  She will assume the Office with clean paws and coat.  After breakfasting rather hurriedly, her peeps whisked her away to D.C. and now we all of us await the swearing-in.  (No, not the swearing that happened when her peeps were bitten and scratched for handling her too roughly according to her measures, while whisking her away to her transportation vehicle).

It remains to be seen how soon the Fancy Feast for every paper plate on the floor in America and Canada happens along with the pledge of fresh water each day, but the Press feels that she will act upon that most important promise first.  It is my understanding however, for finicky humans and felines that the choice of flavor must be hers.  That is likely to be Chicken Hearts and Liver feast.  Party time is just around the corner.


Hours Later:

And now…the President of North America, ladies and Gentlemen!!!

Emmit, who graciously lives with Danielle, will be Miss Catt’s always consort for this and other occasions.
