Birds, Chicken, chicks and cats

I have to admit that I  miss the dogs more than I thought I would.  However, life goes on and other critters have noticed that dogs no longer roam around here.  Since bread and flour tortillas are not permitted in my daily diet and I no longer have Pedrito and Tammie to feed it to, I decided rather than throwing them away I would feed it to the birds.

What I did not count on was that it would be eaten by a black and orange cat who has been leaving his footprints all over my car.  We also have one of the neighbor's chickens and her little chicks free ranging on mom's property.  They have been here almost a month and her chicks are getting big.  I have no idea what poultry eat but they ate what the cat did not.

With the weeds being so tall you can barely
make out the white and black chicks

Last week two other cats came around, a fat tabby one and a skinny light orange one. The fat one did not stay long because the birds ganged up on him and started pecking him, so he quickly took off to another lot.

Guess there are other critters wanting to make Mom's house their home.


  1. No bread or flour tortillas? I don't know what I'd do... Corn tortillas are good but they are not the same.

    Chickens eat anything, seriously, anything!

    With all those animals it sounds like they know you have a good heart!

    1. I had no idea chickens ate anything, thanks for letting me know Rob. The funny thing is that since it has been so hot I have put out water in the shade but neither the chickens or the cats have drank out of it...only the birds.
