i've got 3 inside/outside cats. they have been fixed and de-clawed. also i have 25 week old chicks. well today i let them out in a small pen to range around in the grass. my first kitty penny came to investigate, and she took one look and ran from the fuzz balls. the second cat sam, a manx cross, came to investigate them. he looked at them and wandered off. then the last and oldest. bouncer, he has a few gender identity issues. he tried to nurse the other 2 when we first got them. seemed to make the kittens feel more comfortable. but anyway, he comes to investigate the fuzzybutts. he walked over and almost ran when they scattered and started to peep. finally he layed down and started sunning and pretty soon was covered and surrounded by chicks cuddling with him for a bit of warmth and walking all over him. he never even looked like he was gonna try for one. well i put the chicks back in the brooder and went inside and fed the cats, you would think i starve them. but i've never seen one of the 3 eat anything unless it came from a cat food bag or can. not even scraps. i'm a bit relieved that they don't seem interested in the peepers. won't let them be alone together though till they are much bigger though.
