Sister Donna, do you see anybody coming?

Nederlands

Our humans like to travel. During their travels they take photos. We like to watch the photos because there are often cats and birds in them. One photo reminded me at something: when we were kittens our mommy used to tell us tales. Sometimes they were pretty scary. When we did bad things she used to tell us the story of Bluebeard. We’ve always thought it was about a blue bird because one of the women said: “Sister Anna, O, sister Anna, do you see anybody coming?” I played this scene with Donna and I used to say: “Sister Donna, O, sister Donna, do you see anybody coming?” Then Donna answered: “I see a Blue Bird up in a tree and a Black Bird almost hit by a truck.”

  • A truck?
  • Yes, a truck
  • How that?
  • It was crossing the street
  • Didn’t it fly?
  • No, why?
  • Because it’s a bird!
  • No, it was a truck and a truck can’t fly, stupid!

Then we started fighting and our mommy got upset, telling us she’ll send us to Bluebeard if we didn’t stop. Now, look what I found in our humans photo collection: 

Bluebeard

Yes, it’s a picture of Bluebeard. It was painted on a wall somewhere far away from here. There were also paintings of human faces, we assume of sister Anna and her sister.

After discovering this, Donna is afraid to sleep and I haven’t slept well either. We are good girls who do bad things sometimes. I don’t think our humans will send us to Bluebeard but what if Bluebird comes to meet us?

Sister Donna, O, sister Donna, do you see anybody coming?
