It’s Spring

  • 9th May, 2008 at 9:18 AM

Now that it’s spring time, Timin likes to go out on the balcony and enjoy the cool night air.

Last night, I found him under the barbecue. Now the barbecue has this little tarp that shelters it from the rain, which makes it very comfortable. So comfortable, that some pigeons had built a nest. Not long after he'd crawled in there, I heard some cooing and a fluttering of wings.

I lifted the tarp to see Timin looking at a lone pigeon egg in the nest. I asked him, “are you going to eat it?”

In response, he rolled the egg off the edge of the balcony. Then he peered over the edge to watch it splatter below. Finally, he looked up at me expectantly and meowed.

I couldn’t stop laughing.

You stopped him from eating the baby pigeons last year. Now I have a colony of them that I have to chase away.

Sometimes you got to break a few eggs to make an omelete.

They used to bake them into pies.

Delicious pigeon pie.

I misread that as "in the bbq". I had a roommate who's cat liked to sleep in the frying pan on the stove.

Slightly related, overheardinnewyork.com had this quote on Wednesday:

Hispanic deli worker: Es muy barato, como la carne de gato.

i personally think that's sad.
poor baby pigeon that hasn't yet been born.

Well, I guess it's slightly better than hatching and then being rolled off the balcony.

Less terrifying this way. :P

It would've been traumatic, but sort of cool if he had to wear an eyepatch.

Yar! Le chatton pirate Timin!
