Cats & Birds

I was standing doing the dishes about half an hour ago (day off!) and I seen my older cat in the garden  having caught a bird. She does this all the time, but this is the first time i seen this happen.
A flock of about 5-6 small birds started coming over, they were all swooping down at the cat trying to distract the cat so the bird could get away, but lets just say its wings didn't work. I watched for about 5 mins until my cat 'took advantage' of the self service buffet taking down another 2 before I ran out and brought her inside, she is still sitting at the door meowing to get out!!!
It was bonkers!

You can't fight nature !
sad as it is to see dead birds and animals - survival of the fittest and all that.
Interesting though to see nature adapt - have you seen the crows and others who stand one side of a nearside white line beside a road until traffic has gone - before venturing onto the road and then back behind the white line when traffic approaches.

Re: Cats & Birds

the flock of 5-6 would of been this years young an there parents hence why your cat caught them so easily. am going to leave this post now as ive got strong views on cats being allowed to roam on other peoples propety.
ill just say i have to pick upp after my dog's but cat owners are allowed to let there cats foul on my propety  Angry

Mine do it all the time as well, in my own garden. They are "gifts"  Smiley

She used to bring the 'gifts' inside, but now we have a wee kitten she keeps them outside to herself!!
