The Circle of Life

Walking to the car two mornings ago, Z and I saw a cat catch a bird. The cat walked with us toward the car and then dropped the bird from its mouth. The bird was still alive, but it could no longer fly. The cat snatched the bird and ran into the bushes. Not too happy with the scene before me, I exclaimed, "Oh no! ewwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Zandra honestly replied, "Well, it's the circle of life." I agreed. It's true. She's right. It is the circle of life.

This morning, walking to the car, we found a wing, some feathers, and a golf-ball size mass of intestines laying on the sidewalk. Zandra exclaimed, "ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!"

Yes. I agreed. "ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!"

Not so circle of life now, is it.
