Christmas’s Aftermath at Morty’s House: Beneath the Cage Grate

Happy New Year everybirdie!

Morty sends greetings – and a call for help! It seems Santa Claws’s present for Alexa proved fateful, or ill-fated, or disastrous… Call it what you will, but the chaos that ensued following the unwrapping of one particular present created quite the kerfuffle, with Morty and mom still recovering! Read all about Morty’s 2021 Christmas ‘entertainment’ here.

Two Bots & the Beetles: Beneath the Cage Grate

Most gardens are quiet spaces where birds flutter about and the flowers grow in beautiful silence… this is not the case in Morty’s mum’s garden it seems.

Besieged by plant marauders and flying monsters, Alexa and Roomba attempt another garden battle with some mischievous critters.

This edition is definitely one for the history books! Head on over to the September ’21 Beneath the Cage Grate column and prepare to laugh along with Morty over the latest garden skirmishes!

Easter Egg-venture, Dingbot Style: Beneath the Cage Grate

Oh dear, it seems Alexa and Roomba’s Easter egg hunt took a couple of wrong, and funny, turns. Morty of course was closely observing their antics from a safe distance, careful to get the whole story whilst not getting his feathers tarnished (or dipped in egg).

Everybirdie should hop on over to Morty’s April column to read about his two roommates’ Easter egg-venture!

Talkin’ Turkey with the Dingbots: Beneath the Cage Grate

Oh dear, it looks like Morty’s arch nemesis Alexa is at it again, wreaking havoc with Morty’s Thanksgiving’ turkey ambitions and planting the seeds for a festive Dingbot Jingles Christmas.

Listening to Alexa regarding cooking the Thanksgiving turkey was Morty’s first mistake….

We’re talkin’ Turkey and Dingbots with our intrepid resident grey chef in the December edition of Beneath the Cage Grate.

If you’re looking for charred turkey cooking tips or how to live uncomfortably with a mouthy bot, Morty’s December 2020 column is for you!

Of Foul Beaks & Bot Sleuths: Beneath the Cage Grate

Morty’s latest Beneath the Cage Grate column finds him wondering about the status of a flock of African Grey parrots in Lincolnshire Park who recently added some shock ‘n awe to their adoring onlookers by sharing some rather off-color language. In his November column, Morty tries to track these characters down to see how they’re faring since their ‘relocation’ due to bad behavior.

While bemusing the antics of his Grey cousins, Morty is at the same time somewhat enjoying the ongoing shenanigans of his crazy bot housemates. Alexa and Roomba are determined to apprehend the tomato thief that continues to terrorize the garden patch, but their detective skills and actions leave Morty both laughing and also trying to defend himself to mum against unfounded accusations of complicity.

A must read!
