After completing my business with the people in the Department, I mentioned the strange sight on the grass outside, and asked why on earth the birds were not scared of the cats.
"Did you notice anything unusual about the cats' eyes? No? Well, have a look at them when you go." They also told me that the ground floor was occupied by some kind of ophthalmic research institute. It turned out they were experimenting with various kinds of contact lenses. All the cats had contact lenses in, couldn't see a damn thing, and the myna birds knew it.
A lawnful of nonchalant myna birds and short-sighted cats. That's what I call bizarre.
