Home is where the bird's corpse is.
Well Dory, our cat, has indicated to us in no uncertain terms that she knows where home is now. She presented Paula with a dead bird this evening. This is nasty and nice at the same time. Nobody wants to deal with dead wildlife in their home, but it means Dory truly feels safe and at home with us now. Paula dealt with the corpse accordingly and our Dyson vacuum made short work of the remaining bits and feathers.
