Alas, our boy white zebra finch met a sad ending in the mouth of our cat Leo.
Q is still angry with him and I understand that so we do therapeutic hugs with the cat every once in a while to help her get over it. She fills with anger and sadness and tells him he is a bad boy but gives him a hug and agrees its just cat-nature to want to eat the poor bird.
Q and her dad boxed up the bird and went to the back of our property for burial. She took along a camera and we have a few shots from the event.
She chose a nice spot, dug a hole, put the box with bird inside into the hole, put some flowers she brought for the service onto the box and they burned some incense. Then they covered the box and put leaves back over the site.
Here are the pics:

No more birds for a while.
