There are a couple of them living in a nest in the cherry tree in our front yard, and they're mean. They know there are kitties living here, and they know we can't get to them, so they take an immense amount of sick, twisted pleasure in getting really close to the screen door and yelling at us.
If the front door is closed, they sit outside the window and look in, mocking us with their outsideness.
I can ignore them; I'll watch for a few minutes and then go do something else, because I know I won't be able to get to them, so what's the point in letting them torment me?
But Buddah...he just doesn't get it, so he sits there--or stands and contemplates climbing the screen door--and gets all flustered. He really hates being yelled at, and having it come from a bird is worse than getting yelled at by a person. He really, really, really wants to pounce on one of them and rip their angry little feathers off, right after he bites their little heads off.
Normally I'm in favor of tormenting Buddah, but this is bordering on torture. But we will get a measure of revenge...next week the People are getting someone to come out and thin the canopy in the tree those birds nest in, and probably cut off a bunch of branches.
Let's see how those little farkers like having their day disrupted.
