My daughters kitten is about 10 months old...and is adorable. We kept her inside for the first 6 months until all her injections etc were up to date...
She has discovered the outdoors!!
She is out half the night and comes home exhausted. But her main pass time is catching birds.
I feel so bad, I like birds..I mean she has a loud jingling bell but still manages to creep up on them.
One morning recently I looked out of my kitchen window and saw my lawn covered with feathers...and there...lay a dead wood pigeon. Now how on earth she managed to catch this I don't know...it's almost as big as she is. She was VERY pleased with herself.
A few days ago my daughters found her with a baby woodpecker. They took it from her immediately and put it in a box.. up in a tree hoping the mother would find it - but alas - it was still there in the morning. So the girls took it to the vet.
My dilemma is that Kitty has basic instincts to stalk, catch and kill...and I feel so sorry for the birds...
I guess that's the 'circle of life'
I'll leave you with a couple of pictures
