|... a BIRD!!
The bird said something to him. But Beau, being a cat, didn't understand bird language. "Meow mreow mrewer" Beauregard answered. Of course. the bird didn't understand cat language, either.
Finally, the bird pointed his wing, and Beau saw a path leading deeper into the woods. He decided to follow it.
The bird flew out of the tree and circled Beau for a few minutes, then settled back into the leafy branches.
