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:

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: You have highlighted the pigeon's secret o...

Re: BLACKBIRDS

All was well with the world today. More Blackbirds than I've seen for a while and they were all arguing over the food and chasing one another. :blackbird: :fence:

That is cats alright JS. Always someone elses garden. They know they are welcome in mine, and run as soon as they see me.
Is welcoming both, birds and cats, to your garden wise Willpar :eek: :laugh:

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....
