My girls would like this, they are cat people all three. Me, i'm a dog man and they bark at clouds, so in the winter they are noisy and in the cloudless summers here in Cyprus they are quiet .....unless they spot a passing butterfly and get confused !! God Bless. Dave.

The cats might think the birds are there for their leisure and entertainment? Oh Daver, but the seeds and bread sound like a fine picnic! Gertrude Stein wrote that "a rose is a rose", but one may also say that a cat is a cat.:)) best wishes,love, Mikki

Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. Hope the birds are shaprp or the cat is old. Maybe you should put it on a leash Dave. Picnic time is coming isn't it!
