Tuesday Photo Challenge – Promise

The spring came late this year. The winter rain kept the sun away when the plum trees needed the warmth to bring out the blossoms. Regardless, the hard-working bees pollinated the blossoms as much as they could. It looks like the trees promise a fruitful harvest in the summer. The top right photo is apples and the bottom right is plums.

Just thought that I could relax to look forward to the harvest, I found out that the homeless and hungry cat has eaten three mourning doves in my backyard. The doves are not very alert. The cat hid behind the flowers and dashed out to the doves. I’m heart-broken and try to do my best to fence in some area for the birds. He’s behind a gate my neighbor installed to keep the dog in their yeard. The cat is flexible to go through any tiny area to get into my yard.

  1. Aww, I’m sorry about the doves. ❤ We have a new stray cat hanging around here as well whom I've seen go after birds. (Looks similar to yours.) I make noise when I see her stalking a bird to scare the bird away. The other day, she had something in her mouth, and she took it with her. I didn't want to know what it was. But at the same time, I love cats and want to adopt all I see, haha. So I understand your confliction there. 🙂

  2. Oh, Miriam, I’m so glad you shared this for #ForgivingFridays – thank you! I really get your sadness for these little doves, and also your caring and conflict about the cat. Sometimes life is not clear cut, is it? I’m sending Light and love to you, to your decisions with this, and to all these animals for the highest good. You are such a gem. Much love! Debbie
    ps – I’ll share your post this Friday. Blessings Miriam!!

  3. How sad for the little doves. How sad for the little cat to be homeless and hungry too. I guess he’s just doing what cats do. Unfortunately, cats do a lot of damage to our wildlife in Australia, wiping some native species out. It is sometimes more difficult to feel compassion for them en masse than it is for individual cats.
