Leapin' Lincoln

It all started with a bit of feather teasing at the door...

 "Woo HOOOOO!  Abby's got it!"

"Please, sir... Might you bring the feathers inside the door so that Lincoln might catch them?"

"HEY!  Who said Abby was done yet?"

*******************Time Passes*******************

"LOOK OUT, BIRDIE!! LINCOLN'S ON THE LOOSE!!"

"GOTCHA!"

"Please, sir... Might Cruzie have a turn with the delightful feathers next?"

"Lincoln's not done yet, Cruzie. Wait your turn!"

"Sharing is good for your heart, Lincoln."

"So is leaping. It's great for the cardiovascular system... 
LOOK OUT BELOW!!!"

"Oh yeah, baby... This bird is tasty!"

"Well that was a bit rude, Lincoln. Cruzie thought Mama taught you better than that."

"Mama taught Lincoln all sorts of things! How to catch a birdie, for instance."

"And how not to let the birdie escape..."

"And some super flexible yoga poses..."

"And break dancing too... LOOK AT LINCOLN SPIN!!!"

"WHOA... Mama never taught Cruzie how to dance like that."

"Well... Mama always did like Lincoln best."

((blink, blink))

((sigh...))

"Oh, okay... Cruzie can have a turn.  Just be quick about it."

"Thanks, Lincoln!"

"Wait Dude... You're doing it all wrong.  Let Lincoln show you..."

"LEAP and GRAB! Not tap and bat!"

"LEAP..."

"GRAB..."

"Nom nom nom."

"Don't worry, Cruzie.  We can't all be spectacular hunters.  
Lincoln will catch all the birdies for you from now on."

    1. I'm more in awe of them every day. I never would have imagined that the itty bitty Cruzie that moved in the front room in August would have developed SUCH striking markings. (And Lincoln is no slouch either!)

  3. How great would it be if Lincoln and Cruzie were adopted together?
