Re: MICE

Cats kill for fun. They inherit an instinct to hunt and most of them enjoy fulfilling that part of their make-up. :cat2: Cats have been tamed, and humans managed to teach them to use a litter tray. There are courses and help groups to help you teach your cat use litter tray. Something that's not pa...

Re: MICE

I went into my garden this morning to find this gruesome murder scene :cry3: https://i.imgur.com/FTYTGUF.jpg https://i.imgur.com/HAY056F.jpg Obviously it was a cat attack because the pray was not even eaten! That's the most annoying thing about cat's kills, they don't even need to eat it! :hissyfit:...

Re: Your Garden Hedgehogs

I saw few hedgehogs run over on the roads last few days :( , they mist be juveniles who have struggled to find food and could not go into hibernation yet. So desperately sad :weep:

Re: Feral Pigeons

I heard these tiny squeaky voices coming from pigeon's nests near the high street today, in this freezing cold weather :faint: . Poor little ones must be feeling this cold more than the others. You have to give it to them, they are such a tough birds :nod:

Re: CATS

Just seen this, should have been NOT welcome in the garden, but they do scarper as soon as they see me. Lady across the road that moved in around three years ago has got two of them.

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

Robins are considered to be the most friendly garden visitors, but my blue tits are becoming a serious contender for that title this year :fence: It started recently, with a bluey staying still in the shrub while I'm putting the food out, as long as I'm far away enough, and than when I get closer fl...

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

I tent to agree with that JS, colder weather is bringing more birds to my garden too. I have collared doves, stock doves, wood pigeons, GSWs , blue/great tits, some sparrows, starlings, robin (very gentle soul 😊 ) and just today a lovely little wren showed up :love: . It always puzzles me why they a...
