Spring Is Coming, The Cats Are Flying Back…

Spring has come early this year and cats are starting to return back home. Soon they will fill their nests with little kittens and their beautiful songs will be heard far and wide.

    It’s agriculture that is killing lots of birds cats get a few once in awhile but foxes and hawks or eagles or falcons get more enjoy the pictures. By the way they are not photo shopped.

    Cats do like to be “up” – some of these are just seeking shelter and warmth. How many are strays?

    I think the cats are thinking ” if we stay up here in the tree’s we won’t get infected by a human that has the carona virus

    Cats kill up to 3.7B birds annually – USATODAY & National Geographic have both stated this. a quick good result confirms this. One way to help save birds is to keep pet cats inside and control the feral population. Cats are great, but birds are too, and there are so few people and organizations that give them a voice. Be conscious of your actions as a pet owner. It is sad to think that people believe it is cute when their cat “brings them a present.”

    greathorned owls can grab a small dog, i don’t know if they go after cats;

    hawks too, any bird of prey, would go after a small domestic animal.

    it is a cat’s natural instinct to hunt

    I totally loved the cat in the huge bird’s nest. Like it was pretending to be a chick. So funny.

    Ahhh, The feral population climbing the trees to get out of the snow and seek some sort of shelter. they have to eat and they are a preditor. Most wildlife will feed on another form of wildlife and even domestic animals when they need to eat.
    Be a responsible pet owner by spay or neutering your pets, there are plenty of places that offer drastically reduced costs for those too cheap to do the right thing and for those who can’t afford the high cost.
    Also, keep your pets indoors except when walking your dog on a leash. There is no need for a cat to be out roaming the territory where so much harm can come to them. If you love them then do the right thing to keep all your pets happy and healthy.
    Otherwise, simply don’t have them.

    Cats kill birds. Birds kill worms. Yes, don’t put your hummingbird feeders low in cat territory but come on now, you all. People just get ridiculous about this stuff.

    Now we know where cats come from!

    Oh good grief to the people with no sense of humor! Does everything have to be serious? I don’t care if this is photo shopped or real. It’s doggone adorable!! Love this for what it is…funny. Yes, you should spay or neuter your cats, that’s common sense. Cats eat birds…and mice and other things. That’s called “nature”. Lighten up. There’s so many other things to worry about in this world. If things like this are going to “trigger” you stay in your safe space, don’t look at them, and let the rest of us be happy.

    Yeah a cat natural instinct is to hunt….but cats are an invasive species since their domestication. Birds compete with cats, pollution, light and sound noises, pesticides and the list goes on. Birds populations have declined at an astonishing number in the past fifty years. Keep your pet inside your house. Yes the pictures are cute, yes the title made me smile…but it doesn’t make the rest less important.

    I choose cats over birds – I’ve never had a cat shit on my car.

    Apparently many more birds are killed by flying into windows, particularly in cities, than by cats

    The reduction of bird numbers is NOT due to cats. The reduction of bird numbers is due to HABITAT DESTRUCTION, cats are just part of that process. Frankly, I’d rather have cats hunting and killing rodents. Birds are part of that process too. I would really like to see just how that ‘data’ about bird-killings attributed to cats was actually compiled by USA Today and Natl, Geo. magazines…Cats gravitate to humans because rodents are there too. Get real!

    I’ve never seen cats gather in trees like this. I’m from California. Fires and earthquakes keep most cats out of the trees! (My windows kill more birds than cat.)

    Now cats are recreating artist Andy Goldsworthy “Leaning into the Wind” opening.

    They would make good target practice sitting in the trees like that.

    Lol reminds me of when my cat was teaching her kittens to Climb. Cats are so strange and wonderful creatures.

    I thought cats were to be kept inside when birds were migrating during early Spring and Fall. There are many birds killed by cats during this period. Please keep your house cats inside to protect the birds.

    These pictures are from Russia (mention the 11th with the name of site ‘picabu’ in the corner. In spring the cats become crazy! Especially in the village where they live free as the birds )) “March cat” is the same as th “march hare” plus some erotic connotation.

    Very cute set of pictures. Yes, spay or neuter your cat. Keep your cat indoors if at all possible (keeps the mice away). Yes cats kill some birds, but humans kill more birds and all other animals than anything else by hunting, poisoning, and habitat destruction. Only coronavirus is keeping the stupid humans indoors (reducing pollution and destruction as well).

    Get a life people! Enjoy the pictures and otherwise shut up!

    Cats have been around forever. They need to eat. If people wouldn’t abandon their cats, there wouldn’t be so many feral cats outdoors and suffering. If they were near me I would have to capture them, spay and neuter them, give them their shots and then make them a home and domesticate them. It isn’t easy. It takes a long time, but they are the nicest cats when they finally realized that someone loves them and they are caring for them. Cats should be taken to a no kill shelter if you can’t care for them. One of my best cats ever was a feral cat.

    We estimate that free-ranging domestic cats kill 1.3–4.0 billion birds and 6.3–22.3 billion mammals annually. Un-owned cats, as opposed to owned pets, cause the majority of this mortality.

    Funny pics. but you really need a caution to keep your cats indoors, spay and neuter, be responsible.
    If we had free ranging wolfs and coyotes the cat population would be in check.
    The birds need our help to keep cats in check
    and yes I do love cats, indoors.
