You can't run away from death

Two days ago i had a very usual and busy day nothing special occurred except when i went out late night to open up the dog , i noticed some thing slightly white near my gate i went towards it and to my surprise it was a very pretty cute little pigeon i picked it up effortlessly which was a sign that he was not feeling well. I brought him inside the house gave him some water and bread crumbs which he ate very whole heartedly ,but i was totally confused that if he is sick then sick birds usually dont eat that eagerly but on the other hand he was really slow i showed him to my hubby he thought that may be he is really tired after struggling to scape a cat attack or so .... just let him rest ....

A thought did crossed my mind to keep him as a pet but my this love for pets is already converting my home into a mini sized zoo :) so i decided to just let him rest on our terrace which is totally out of the reach of cats and in the morning if he is feeling better he can fly away
the night was over and a brand new day started i opened up the terrace door .....AH! what a pleasant surprise the pigeon was not there which means that after rest he felt better and flew away ......... end of the story .

NO not really thats not the end of the story whole day long i had such a good feeling that i was able to help some one in need but then in the after noon when i went to our back yard to check our chickens and ducks my mouth was left open and i was totally speech less for a while that poor pigeon try to fly away and some how came down stairs and there Sasha our aggressive watch dog killed it ... all those good feelings replaced them selves with sadness and guilt that i shouldn't have placed him on the terrace ,but gradually as the time is passing i am realizing that no one can be blamed for this, i never wanted this to happen ,the pigeon was only trying to avail his freedom and Sasha the Villon in this story has an instinct to pray the only thing logical is that You Just Can't Run Away from death,it will come to you .

good bye little friend....


  1. It is hard to reconcile our pets' natural instincts with our desire to protect. The same thing has happened to me with my cats.

  2. Awwww,poor did what you could for him.
