This morning, I awoke to the sound of a mockingbird making a horrible racket. The series of loud chirps, tweets and whistles could not be stopped and made one heck of an alarm clock sound. You see, the woodland creatures have come up with clever ways of startling me and my peaceful states. The birds enjoy chirping early in the morning on weekends (don’t they know it’s Sunday?!) or just get restless on their perches in branches just a stone’s throw away from my eardrums. Mind you, I do not mind relative daily chirping if, of course it’s kept to a minimum. But just as I thought no other creature could disturb me, alas, I was wrong. The photographic proof is here. On two occasions (on the same day no less) both a Squirrel and Creepy Cat were on two separate parts of my roof (the West and North sides respectively). You’ll note in the photo just how Creepy this cat is…staring at you and lurking in the bushes. As for the squirrel, well let’s just say he’s stealthy and sneaky…besides, he is from the rodent family so…yeah.
But how can one stop the overall attack on all sides? Birds from the air, cats and squirrels on the ground from blocking my only exits from the building! I guess I’ll just have to wait things out and hope that these were isolated incidents…at least until next time…mwahahahahaha!
