And then the Noisy Miners found him, and set up an Intruder Alert. In less than a minute there were close to 50 of these birds sitting in the bushes around Ziggy and screaming. A couple of butcher birds joined in, followed by a magpie, and the back fence was lined by sacred ibis all wondering what the fuss was about.
Ziggy finally broke cover and made a bee-line for the back door, belly low to the ground while the birds darted and swooped above him, dive-bombing him to make sure he got the message. Once he reached me I snatched him up, laughing fit to kill. What was that all about? He's supposed to be the cat, they're the birds!
