This morning I was headed out to pick some basil and I noticed the cat sitting near the edge of the yard. He’s usually on the other side of the house, towards the woods. See him sitting near the pipe fence?
Since Sears is bringing the new freezer today, I didn’t let the chickens run loose (they will get in the truck when no one is watching!) but I knew the three chicks would be running loose because they know exactly where they can squeeze under the fence.
I didn’t want the cat to catch one (or all) of them so I went to see what he was watching.
Rabbits! He’s watching two bunnies. I know he isn’t hungry . . I fed him this morning. I guess a cat is going to be a cat . . hungry or not.
When I got a little close, he turned and walked away . . like he had no intentions of causing harm to the bunnies.
I don’t like him heading towards the highway but, calling a cat back does no good at all. Hopefully I’ll see him back this evening wanting to be fed.
These guys should be thanking me. I probably just saved them from becoming a cat trophy! We have enough rabbits around here that we surely wouldn’t miss them but I don’t want the cat getting them either . . like I have any say in what he does!
