Zoe caught a bird yesterday.  I was working on the big veggie bed (which is sadly pathetic this year, the last of the zucchinis just died, and I'm trying to figure out what to plant in its large, empty place) when I heard her walk by behind me, peeping.  I thought that was a rather odd sound for her to make, and looked over to see that she had a large, reddish bird in her mouth.  Looked pretty satisfied too, and had no intention of giving it to me.  She took it over to the pear tree, and set it down, at which point I picked her up, and dumped her in the house.  She was pretty annoyed and spent the next while staring at me through the door, meowing constantly.  The bird was gone by the time I got back a few minutes later.  While I didn't get a great look at it, since it was upside down and in Zoe's mouth most of the time, I think it was the female from the local cardinal pair, so I'm not particularly pleased that Zoe beat it up.  Why couldn't she beat up a pigeon or a starling or something else nasty?  I am curious to see if this was one-time luck, or if she's learned a new trick and there will be more birds.

Ivy followed this up with a good impression of freaking out at seeing my shovel lying on the lawn, which I later figured out was freaking out at seeing the skunk hiding under the hosta.  For once, freaking out over something reasonable.

Gemini has caught two birds from inside the house. I'm not sure whether that should be comforting...

Both were dead by the time I saw them; the second time I took a walk so I didn't have to watch her eat it. What's really weird is that it seems that she eats the feathers too.
