                I didn't like this at all. I HATE to see any fighting. Why couldn't the video taper break it up???? Huh??? Poor kitty. (And I'm not even a cat person!)  Guess who got a new PUPPY????? I'll let her post it. :~)

                        Well, my husband did not like it either.  The humour for me was strickly imagining what on earth those cats did to the birds in the first place.   The birds were the instigators from the viewpoint of the camera, though I imagine they came along and saw two probably Tom cats deciding who was king of the road.

                        The way the birds were acting, was like  you can see them saying  "Come on, give a left jab,  go for the tail, smack him down.  The cats at the one point prob would have finished the spat, but the bird got the tail and oh wow   I am a cat person, and my two are indoor cats, and I do not agree with outdoor cats being free.  But those birds……  True I worry about the cats.

                            I was just amazed at how bold the birds were. Especially with a big old rolling catfight going on! I mean…have yall HEARD that kind of cat fight? there must have been yowling and hissing and spitting and growling going on. You'd think that would scare those birds away.

                            They were really relentless.

                                Oh My….  several years ago, and for many years prior, our next door neighbour had 3 cats.  all male, all neutered.  But they were out door cats.  Between, them, and full toms which roam freely (grrrr)  and racoons adding to the mix, plus the odd skunk that would waltz through our back yard, letting us have a strong (make you taste it being soooo close to our house) eau de pepe la peww.

                                 

                                I don't think we have those type of crows here.  (I mean white and black ones)  but Blue Jays used to attack a neighbours cat who sought refuge on our front porch.  dive bombed him.  I always let him in to recover his sanity, but you KNOW he had been upsetting the birds.  tsk tsk.

                                   Bonnie, we don't have  crows like that here either. Someone told me they are called 'Hooded Crows" and that they are common in the British Isles.

                                          The fearlessness of the birds reminded me a bit of the vultures in the old wild west movies. I wonder if they live nearby and see the cats go at it often, or maybe the B&W cat ate their babies and it's payback time!  The crows in these parts have never bothered me much but we read of Hitchcock like dive bombings from time to time.. these ones sure know when it's safe to get close to a cat!
