He scared me at first. I was at my computer by the window and there was a loud "honk". (Our bedroom window looks out into the garden.) He followed the honk with the typical holler of "help, help". The peacock belongs to a neighbor and comes and goes every now and then. He's been out there all day, apparently ever since last night as my parents saw him cross the driveway late last night. The kitties have been venturing out into the backyard and, thankfully, they don't stray too far away from the back porch. Today, however, each time the peacock yells, they fly to hide underneath the back deck. Chickens.
