Feathers and Felines....

This is why I prefer dogs to cats......I found this pathetic pile of feathers near my chook shed this morning. It could have been a fox, but far more likely it was one of my neighbours three cats that have a history of stalking birds on my property.








Once this sad and sorry pile of gorgeous red and blue feathers was one of these....







A Scarlet Rosella, and as they mate for life, I guess there is one grieving bird around somewhere.

Having lived on the other side of the world all my life, your wildlife...birds, koalas, etc. are amazing to me. What a sad thing for this bird to be gone. Can you use these feathers in your artwork?

i am not a fan of cats AT ALL for this very reason.

which is why my cats are never ever allowed outside the confines of the house and/or their cat run [ cleverly disguised as a shade house ]

I have a visiting pair of crimsons and would be devastated if one of my animals caused their deaths

if you can bear to gather up the feathers, Marcie will use them
