“Happy Birthday! Here’s the bird I brought you! I did nibble off the head while I was waiting for you to come find this treasure. Hope you don’t mind!”
And I, because I love both my husband and the cat, I cleaned up the mess. I bagged the bird and vacuumed the feathers up. Even though I don’t do dead animals – that’s why I stay married. So HE can do dead animals. But I love him, and it was his birthday.
