A neighbouring cat sidles amongst the front garden shrubs
Eyes a-glow in the early morning sunshine.
It slinks and stealthily twines amongst the twigs
Another bird dies.
I have often written about the birds that visit our garden and how much pleasure they provide. This morning I was heartbroken to discover feathers amongst the plants in the front garden, and I am sure they are the feathers belonging to a King Parrot.
King Parrots are not small birds and for a cat to catch this one was no small effort, probably.
As a matter of fact, I like cats, but they must be locked inside at night time because otherwise they cause devastation to our native wildlife. Sadly, too many owners are completely irresponsible and let their cats roam where they please.
