There’s another bird in the woodstove…

😀 And it’s fluttering around in there driving Laddie batshit crazy.

ETA: I opened the door, it flew out, and Laddie caught it! Wonder if that’s his first vertebrate kill?

    So it seems that Laddie has defended his new territory from that dangerous and annoying bird. Does he seem proud of himself?

  2. Jim Price says:

    Keep in mind that birds are the direct descendants of dinosaurs . . . vicious, carnivorous killers. Laddie has acquitted himself well, defending Joel from a violent and untimely death.

    Hard to imagine that a doggie that close to the ground could catch a bird! A video would have been priceless.

    😀 This descendant of the dinosaurs had been in the stove since late yesterday and must have been half dead. Laddie nailed it close to the floor because that was where it ended up when it tried to fly out of the stove. He did seem quite pleased with himself over it.

    Had a sparrow get in the house, it was frantically flying around the living room as I tried to shoo it out. One of my cats leaped up and cought it mid air about 4 feet up. He ran with the bird to the back door, I let him out, he just dropped the bird and came back in. He didnt hunt but he was very territorial. The other cat would have killed the bird and brought it to me or my wife for praise.

    Spark Arrestor. Will help keep water, birds, snakes, lizards, largish insects out and sparks in.

    It’s a needful thing.

    Not to take away a steady source of Laddie snacks, but…

    Yup. Every year I wish for one. And while I could acquire one, I’m not able to walk that heavily-pitched roof to install the damned thing.

    Is it possible to drop one in place and push it down if necessary with one of Ian’s quadcopters?

To the stake with the heretic!
