“In the tiger cage!!”


Description from Kitty Chicky Cat: Add some 5-8 mm Tiger Eye rounds and 12mm Amethyst Coins.

This story brings new meaning to the term “bird brain”! At the zoo they let the petcocks roam free during the day. One night, when the keepers when to take them in for the night, they couldn’t find one of the big males. The next morning when they looked into the tiger enclosure they found a pile of petcock feathers!

    not a nice kitty, at all, that one. oh – wow – well, that’s nature. funny – my fiesty cat could really care less about our zebra finches – she’ll sit in the room with them, on the windowsill and just fall to sleep in the sun. now, my shy girl, piece of work – how many times have I walked in the room to see the cage swinging from the ceiling and her on top of it – then I get this look like ‘what, mom?’ Tiger Iron + pink chocolate! yum!!!!

    Thanks Smoky Rose Chick! Oooo! Baaaad cat! ;) I love those “innocent kitty- who meee?!!” looks! :D
    It is a sad but funny story and I thought it’d make a pretty Tiger Eye pick!

    ‘Night Smoky Rose! I’m so sorry if I upset you!! I thought about sharing this story for a while, every time a petcock pick came up, but always thought better of it. Maybe I should have this time too! Sorry!!!

    how so, about the tiger? No, Kitty, no – not at all. Seeing it….. that would have been upsetting…. hearing he was hit by a car…. upsetting, but Mr Tiger was just doing what tigers do. I’m good – but thanks so much for your concern. I really have been out of it today – you see, I’ve even been on the quiet side here.

    ‘Night, girls. 10:30pm on the East coast. I need to stretch out – get out of the bright lights and try to start to unwind.
    Thanks for all the fun – more tomorrow!
    Good night – be well.

    Thanks Silly Chick!
    I know! Tigers are NEVER tame! The bird had lived at least most of it’s life at the zoo, it should have known better than to hop the fence into the tiger enclosure! But still, I feel bad for the it! Of all the animals to visit…
