Escape Kitty #29 - Still Searching for a Pirate Parrot
Episode #29 - Kitty is currently a Pirate preparing for the open sea. Yeah I know - she doesn't have her hat and eye patch on right now, but trust me. She's a Pirate. Forget about the eye patch for a moment - she needs to complete the look with a parrot for her shoulder.
In Episode #28, she thought she'd start the search close to home (in our neighbors yard) and tried to approach a hummingbird for the job. Let's just say it wasn't an ideal match -too small, too fast, too irritating.
After regrouping, Kitty spotted this pair of Macaws; a Scarlet Macaw and a Blue and Gold Macaw. Now we're talking.
Looked promising. Kitty is always thinking! A typical pirate has only one parrot. She could have two - a bird for each shoulder! What a great and unique idea. She could be extra special.
Here in the photo, the Macaws take a moment to chat amongst themselves and discus the job opportunity.
"OK, Yep We're IN".
The Scarlet Macaw was the first to step off her perch and on to Kitty's shoulder. Well, she tried, and tried again, and then one last time. The Blue and Gold Macaw decided he'd give it a shot. Stepped off the perch and was able to get one leg (talon) on but that's able all that would fit. (Later Kitty would admit it was a ridiculously big talon and equally ridiculous idea)
"I'm sorry Kitty, we just don't fit. We are way too big. Perhaps you can hop on our backs? We'll fly you where you want to go."
Kitty stomped off in utter disgust at the suggestion.
That's nonsense. No Pirate alive flies! We sail on the ocean, not in the air.
Off to rethink this plan. Don't give up Escape Kitty. There's a bird out there somewhere for you.
And NO -the blue feathers are NOT from the Macaws tail end. Shame on you for thinking Kitty would take them for use on a LO. Uh...right Kitty? back me up here Kitty.
There are some Dusty Attic ferns here as part of the Macaws habitat. The flowers are Graphic 45 metal flowers that I embossed with the Vintaj embossing plates. Added some Adirondack paints and a brad.
The papers are from Quick Quotes and were the perfect color pop I needed to accent my birds.
I made the organza flower below with a few layers of organza circles that I cut and sewed together.
These are Macaws I took at the Naples Zoo, Naples Florida. I just brought the Zoo to Kitty.
Thanks again for looking and have a puuuurfect day.
