A Fable – An Unknowing Savior

Repost

The mouse meandered along unaware of the danger fast approaching.

The cat crept closer, sniffing the air eagerly. Dinner!

Squawking, the blue jay dove at the cat, alerting the mouse to his enemy.

  1. And the moral is, if you’re the cat, for God’s sake, take off your bell before pouncing, and stay out of mama blue jay territory.

      Yes exactly. Used to love watching the blue jays dive at our cat squawking something fierce. That cat brought all kinds of animals home for us. We saved as many as we could. She didn’t hunt them for food so much as she was well fed. She was just following her instincts, but those jays hated her. 🙂

    I don’t know much about bird behavior, but I guess the other moral is, if you’re a mouse, then hang with the blue jays! Or do the birds go after mice too? Anyway, this was well done.

      Thank you! I am not sure what birds do about mice. I was thinking about a cat we had and the blue jays getting back at her. Thank you for stopping by and reading.

    Blue jays are supposed to be mean birds. Cat needs to be more clever. Thank goodness the mouse and bird are friends of sorts. Pays to have good ones!

      Blue jays are mean birds. They used to screech and try to attack our cat although I can’t blame them too much since the cat had no problem going after them. Thank you for stopping by and reading.

      We were able to save some of the “gifts” my cat always brought home to share with us. Sadly some didn’t make it and blue jays would squawk something fierce at her.

    There is something about the way cats await their prey and then pounce that makes you admire their cunningness!

      Cunning indeed. I used to watch our cat getting all ready to pounce. She was unfortunately very good at catching her prey. Thank you for stopping by.

    The squawking bird gets the mouse? (Early rising and worms are for the birds :))

    Nice entry for a difficult prompt!
