This is a tale that ended well. It took place back in May. The humming birds had just recently arrived for their summer visit.
I had been busy moving pots of posies onto the deck. Scooter (the devilish cat) was apparently busy as well. He had something he was getting ready to eat. When I went to rescue the victim I was horrified to see a small wing protruding from his mouth. In picking up my devil cat I was able to get him to relinquish the tiny creature. She fell to the ground on her side and just blinked an eye. Scooter was immediately taken indoors and I returned to see if there was any hope.

My hubby came rushing to see why I was scurrying about. He took charge of the situation and brought her some water and took down the feeder to see if she would take some nourishment. She was sitting perched on my finger and seemed to be dazed. There were no apparent wounds. Gently I brushed her wings. Unbelievable the small size of these birds. Not any longer than my index finger.
We decided to take her up to the pussy willow bush which had branches in easy reach. At first she would not perch on a limb. Then suddenly her head started turning back and forth and a chirping sound began and she gently sailed to a twig above me. As I reached up to touch her one more time she flitted higher and then flew away.
This tale certainly ended well!
Hope I made you smile.
Until next time God Bless You all!
