    Love these.

    Dead Birds though. How come you rarely see them in real life? The live ones are everywhere. Where do they go to die?

        Nasty cats. We have bird feeders out, and the cat next door ventured over every so often to try catch one. Succeeded too. Bought a super soaker last year, and Monsieur le Chat is afraid of his own chat to come over now.

          We have bird feeders in the garden and a cat also.

          It is a source of great amusement to us, the neighbours and also the birds when the cat attempts to catch them. She has to go elsewhere to hunt or else be laughed out of the garden.

            We had bird feeders in our garden until last summer when, mid Chardonnay sip, I saw a big bleedin rat swinging out of one of them

            Those little horrors are the reason I have a cat in the first place.

            We used to live a good bit outside of the town, loads of fields and the like, and one day I was going out to put some rubbish in the green bin. When I opened the lid, down at the bottom were four fully grown rats having some sort of party and eating through the plastic of the green bin. I screeched and threw whatever was in my hand down on top of them in a fit of panic.

            We got a cat the next week and she’s the bizz.

            The seed attracts the rats. We’d one a few years ago and you could see the trail in the grass. We poisoned him. When he was slowing up, he was surrounded by 4 crows who pecked at him, driving him mad for an hour or more at which stage he managed to crawl down an embankment.

          ah it’s their nature, he has a flashy collar and bell now I have officially adopted him

            Our cat brought a dead mouse to the door this morning… when it dawned on him he wasn’t getting into the house with it, he disposed of the body- but left the entrails outside the door to be stood in…

            Ah they get around that. Garda asks them all for their name, and they’re all called Mr. Crow. Not a hope of a summons.
