It was a scenario that was not what one would anticipate. With its head locked in a birdcage, a cat—known for its predatory tendencies—
had achieved the rare circumstance where the captor had become the hostage. Curiosity had put the cat in an unexpected scenario where it became entangled in the exact thing it was trying to catch.
The cat’s head within the cage represented vulnerability. It had been drawn in by the alluring prospect of the birds within, and in its chase, it had been entangled in the same thing that was designed to hold it captive.
The sight of the imprisoned cat represented a turn of events for the caged birds. Now that the roles had been reversed, they were in a position of authority and could look on the cat’s plight fearlessly.
