And here's why....
for most of the summer.
Until last month when she decided to move closer.
Now she's on our front porch every morning.
watching the world wake up,
listening to the interstate noise
and checking out the airplanes as they fly over.
Then she moves to the back courtyard & deck.
There she eats the birdseed & cracked corn we leave for her.
She looks in the windows & stares at the cats.
And the cats stare back.
She terrorizes Oscar the cat when he's outside
where she gets very very close.
She either loves him & wants to be friends
or she hates him & wants to fight.
Either way, Oscar wants no part of a relationship.
I think she's lonely.
But she's also getting free meals.
A city turkey living the easy life.
After a busy day of eating & watching the cats,
she settles in for the night in her favorite tree.
