Cat-loving robin returns to wild

OTSEGO, Mich.- A Michigan woman whose cats took a liking to a wounded robin she found in her yard said the bird had returned to the wild.

Karin Caston of Otsego, who said Peeps the young robin appeared to have an injured wing when she found it chirping in her yard June 6, said she took the bird into her home and soon discovered the young bird liked to nestle in the fur of her cats, the Kalamazoo (Mich.) Gazette reported Wednesday.

"I've never done anything like this before, but it was something that I felt that I could do -- I just had an inner sense that I had to take care of him -- to give him a chance," Caston said.

She said Peeps returned to the wild Monday at Otsego's Brookside Park.

"He's brought me a lot of joy, and it's been an amazing couple of weeks," she said. "I'm sad, yet I know it's a wild animal and needs to return to nature."

Life expectancy of that Robin will be measured in days. If it tries to nestle on or near a cat it bumps into in the wild it will (very) quickly end up ‘nestling’ inside the cat.

The real story is, there is something wrong with that cat or he is in “lion will lay down with the lamb” mode already.

Either way, he is a pussy.

I really believe that little instances like this are God allowing us a glimpse of what it was like in the beginning, and what it will be again one day.

How I long for the day when the “lion will lie down with the lamb” and nothing will hurt or harm in all His holy Kingdom! - I am so weary of war, chaos, confusion and violence.

Strangely, no such video of what happened after kitty became a CAT!

Still, the kitten’s only half grown!

I did enjoy the kitty doing a wrap-attack around the entire crow. The bird looks no worse for wear.
