Bigsley and Bernadette: First Encounter

"You know what you should do?" said Bigsley from his perch.
"You should move in upstairs!"

Bernadette informed him that she prefers nests made of natural things,
Things birds evolved to make nests of.  
Like sticks and leaves.

"And when the cat gobbles you up in the middle of the night, 
Is that natural too?" Bigsley asked.  "And let me guess.
You enjoy sleeping in the rain."

Bigsley was not deterred by the fact that Bernadette didn't answer.

He told her about his aviophobic aunties in Maine
and his favorite place to bathe
and a little known fact about felines.

And though she flew off without a word,
Bigsley was certain she would soon return.
