AIBU …. to be distraught as I watched next doors cat catch and kill my lovely blackbird (sad)
I know that's what cats do, that's why I try to keep them out, but it's impossible.
I love the garden birds.
I've been so enchanted watching the blackbird build it's nest in our Pyracantha bush. Nice and prickly, a good choice I thought as it might keep out predators.
He/she was becoming like family member to me.
I kept away from the bush and watched from a distance, so as not to frighten it off.
I have a garden mirror which he had problems with, as he saw his reflection and kept leaping up to it, thinking he was protecting his territory from an interloper.
It was funny, the first time I saw him do this, nothing made him give up!
So I covered it, so as to allow him some peace.
I haven't stopped crying since, silly me.
I suppose lockdown is getting to me.
Cat lovers please at least put a bell on your beloved.
