It’s a Mixed Blessing

As you can see, the birds have finally discovered the bird feeder. But, as I suspected, it’s been torture for the birds and the cats ever since. There have been moments though, when the birds can eat in peace, when the cats are sleeping in the other room, so all and all I’d say it’s a good thing. I got some actions shots and a short video at the end!

If you listen closely you can hear Finney’s cry, which translates roughly to, “But I want to eat heem.”

  1. Translation (based on Finney’s pose in the video): “I wish to nom that. Please catch it and cook it. I’ll wait here.”
