*relaxing in living room with patio doors wide open*
*cat runs in as fast as she can and rockets upstairs*
*blackbird flies in behind her, buzzes round the room then flies out again*
Beloved: Uh... I think our cat just got chased by a bird.
Sparky: Ye gods, I'm embarrassed on her behalf. Do you hear me, Socks?! Shame on you, fail cat!
Beloved: Call yourself a predator?
*Cat is hiding under the covers on our bed*
*Bird hops around on patio just outside the doors*
Beloved: It's just mocking her now.
