It had driven him nuts all week since his owner brought it home, looking proud.
Today was Judgement Day.
The clock struck the hour. The cat nabbed the cuckoo before it uttered a “cuck” yet alone the “oo”.
The cat leapt as the clock came off the wall but relished trampling over the stricken cuckoo.
His owner looked horrified as he ran into the kitchen.
The cat suspected there wouldn’t be snacks today.
It was a pity but silence was golden after all.
