Welcome to Cat Week here at OPOD. We start the week with this picture of "Tige", the White House cat belonging to Mrs. Coolidge. In 1924, the cat went missing. An All Points Bulletin was put out on the radio stations, and the cat was found at the Navy Department. The cat was found by Benjamin Fink, a guard at the Navy Department, and he is shown above returning the cat.
Lovie continues to terrorize that one little chickie. On Thursday, I saw the chickie attempt a "Jail Break". I heard some commotion out in Chickie Town, looked out, and saw Ain't Gina bolting from the coop. Right behind her was Lovie. Lovie chased her around Chickie Town, then around our yard, and finally into the brush. The Ain't Gina finally gave up, and went back into the coop with Lovie, and sat in the nesting box.
The poll results were evenly split on what to do, with a very slight advantage going towards leaving things like they are. Mrs. PJM was not willing to wait for the polls to close, and took matters into her own hands. She went out, opened the coop, got Lovie and moved her to the Peacock Palace. Then she got the eggs and moved them over and made a little nest. Lovie became very distresses, and just looked out the window honking and screeching. She did not recognize the eggs on the nest as hers, and would not sit on them. So, Mrs. PJM went back out to the peacock palace, caught Lovie, and put her back in the Chickie Coop. She moved the eggs back, and then Lovie got back on them. So, at this point, I am not sure what the expectations should be related to whether the eggs will hatch or not.
