We took a walk up through the ravine the other day and saw, for the first time ever there, several quail running around. They’re surprisingly fast, and we surprised them, so we only caught little glimpses of them.
I think they startled Piper, too. She kept asking to see them again (easier said than done.) And then, when we didn’t produce, she asked for “More Kitty Monsters, pleease!”
The only thing we can figure is that the tail of the bird looked like a tail of a cat, but it was certainly not a cat, so monster is the obvious choice.
I have no idea.
