walking to my car the other day, i heard a woman's voice calling, "here birdie, birdie." looking towards the sidewalk, i saw the woman carrying an empty birdcage, searching high and low for her lost pet. i believe she lives several blocks away, so how she thought she'd find the bird if it was already that far away, i have no idea. this morning i had a note on my car:
LOST 2 PARAKEETS
i did save my landlady's cat from the storage shed roof - and the possibility of being eaten by a mountain lion (if not saved from the unleashed outdoors) - but somehow finding lost parakeets seems a bit more difficult.
