Cats and Birds
A couple nights ago my indoor cat Turtles got out of house. I grabbed the treats and ran out after him, as did my husband Steve. Turtles did NOT care about the treats whatsoever. He tore over to the next door neighbor's yard and he starts batting at a bird that was on the ground. We than realized the bird was all tangled in a wire fence. The poor bird had no chance of getting free as it was all tangled up around its neck, it looked like it had been trapped for over an hour. Steve got a pair of scissors and had to cut the poor little birdie free. It ended up actually being a good thing our kitty got out cause the bird probably would of suffered a great deal and died without anybody noticing. Steve was a hero and it was beautiful when he finally got the wire cut to watch the woodpecker fly off into the tree...another chance at life. It was a great moment.
Cats and Birds seem to have a love/hate relationship as shown from the pictures above. Cats are absolutely fascinated by feathered fliers. I could of posted some gruesome shots of cat hunting bird prey but I much preferred the innocent side as I adore all living creatures...and didn't feel like posting a bunch of poor dead birds in kitties mouths...but hey, its nature I suppose.
