Sweet Birdie Vindication: Beneath the Cage Grate

Games can be fun, especially during long winter nights. Add Alexa and some guest bots to a game of Hide ‘n Seek though and you have the ingredients for mischief… and (short-lived) birdie jail time…

Morty’s January ’23 Beneath the Cage Grate column will leave you laughing and worrying for our poor Morty, fooled again by his bot nemesis Alexa!

Happy New Year Everybirdie!

Turkey Takeout Take Down: Beneath the Cage Grate

Poor Morty’s mum, she was anticipating savoring the enjoyment of a Thanksgiving takeout dinner, brought right to the door, no fuss, no muss. Well, let’s just say that didn’t transpire – for Morty’s mum anyway.

Head on over to Morty’s column to find out where – and who, enjoyed the turkey and mashed potatoes and who ended up locked up (but with a full tummy)!

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!
