birds -vs- cats Birds WIN!
I got a nutty Siamese cat from a friend. He had been a stud cat and kept in a cage. So imagine his delight once we introduced him to our huge walled garden.
Rule numero uno was explained from the start.
Its rude to eat other peoples babies, do not eat my friends! (Birds)
Once out there he decided to have a go, stalking my beautiful Mr and Mrs Blackie (Scots for Blackbirds).
First - my dog went nutty at him and chased him back indoors.
Next - he got attacked by my resident Crow family, Kevin and his missus Karen, kids, Reggie and wee Kev.
Then - my Wood pigeon families, Pinkie and Percy, Wendy and Walter almost battered him to death with their wings.
And the last straw was me spraying him with water.
Now, like all my cats (I am a confirmed Cat lover), he just goes out and "admires" them - otherwise he ends up with no fur on his back from darting in through the cat flap at speed.
My friends say you can't change their nature, but if you feed the birds as much as I do, they are more like fat vultures than sweet little birds and "give no quarter"
A world without birds is not a place I would like to live.
Perhaps I could submit pics some of my sweet little vultures and even my cat ignoring them.
Let me know.
What a great story! And please upload your photos. Happy Birding.
