    I knocked her little butt down right after I took the photos!
    She is such a little brat! I bought 2 extra "necklaces" for her just in case she figures out how to get these off like the others.
    We have been keeping her in until dusk or unless we are out.
    After her attack from the Raccoon or the feral cat she has mellowed out a tiny bit.

    She is a good mouser though.

    Reminds me of how Shadow got herself stuck up on the privacy fence trying to catch birds.

    I hate to have to tell you that bells on a cat mean nothing to a bird. Cats stalk their prey silently and it's easy enough for them to do it without ringing the bell. Also, the cat is recently introduced to N. America from Europe, as early as the turn on the 20th Century. They weren't terribly common here until the 1930's and 1940's. They are not a natural part of the bird's ecosystem and the birds have no instinct that they are dangerous.

    Here is an interesting link to information regarding cats and birds in North America. I realize that it won't change many people's minds about cats, but I do feel a need to share the information, since I am aware of it.
