"Did you ever see a turkey?"

Guess what my family woke up to early this morning. . . . That's right, a turkey. A wild turkey. On the porch. I don't think the cat will ever be the same.

It looks like she got in by pushing through the screen.

It also doesn't look like she was there long though she did lose some feathers. Poor thing was probably so stressed that she was molting. It probably didn't help that she was trying to get out by flying at the screens and the outside door. Dad went around to the outside of the house and let her out. She took off flying the second she got out the door.

The cat was so frightened of the noise coming from the porch that she wouldn't even go near the (closed) door until she was sure that the turkey was gone. Now she is acting all brave.

She doesn't want to hear anything about being a scaredy cat. And now, a final picture of a really pretty wing feather.

The funny thing is, I kept thinking that the feather color looked a whole lot like my Mystery Stole color!

A turkey???!!! That would definitely have sent our little kitty right over the edge;-)

How much do you want to bet that the cat is thinking, "Wow, it didn't even see me, and got so scared it lost feathers!" ??
