Oh Meow is me, being a mother hen is distracting… exhausting… messy, too! The chicks got nip everywhere. Thankfully, it was some old nip that had been forgotten on the bookshelf…. Fureiends, I know many of you have the ‘nip gene’ so you probably can’t imagine how Katsu and I could possibly forget a bag of nip, but neither of us have that gene, so we don’t crave it.
Anyway, getting back to my latest unexpected event, CP & DD (actually DD was probably the leader, she’s quite the little leader – smart, too – even seems to have learned to come when the chef calls her. Sorry for digressing. They climbed up me, hopped off my shoulder and landed on to the shelf …. Since they didn’t look like they’d fall, I didn’t pay attention to what they were doing… That was my mistake. They found the old nip, then managed to open the bag. My nose advised me of this about the point in time when I realized it was raining nip… A most unexpected occurrance!
In fact, I think it is safe to call this a catastrophe.
I don’t think they actually ate any which is good, because I don’t know if ‘nip is good for baby birds. For sure, they had a lot of fun making the mess. Eventually they settled into a cozy spot and fell asleep
It has been swept up and is going to the garden for compost. The chicks seemed to like playing in it though and I will never forget seeing ‘nip rain down on me.
