HENRIETTA: The Saga Continues

Between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. every evening, Henrietta has a last scratch around for a few more morsels, then gently cawing a lullabye to the few birds that are still flitting in and out of the bushes, she toddles off around the back of the house to her roosting place.

"The 5:00 p.m. flight to the Olive Tree is now boarding. Please have your tickets at the ready."

Whew! That was a steep flight up to the 6 foot level for take off!

Hmm. Got a good way to go yet. Better just catch my breath.

"Fasten your seat belts, as we will be taking off momentarily."

"Flight Attendants, please prepare for take-off"

Woosh!! Made it! It's so nice to be home!

(She's in there somewhere. I saw her go.)

If that was Henrietta's Saga, then this is the 'Cat's Tale'

I like your Henrietta's Saga, and how cute...The "Cat's Tale"
Have a great day. Love the way you look at life.

Was beginning to wonder if she had been eaten?????

Since we hadn't heard about Henrietta for a while, I thought she'd flown the coop -- or at least that you'd finally had her for dinner!!

I live in the country and if it were not for the fact that I DO NOT want anything else to take care ofI would love to have a few chickens. Told real cute.
