    This is Pudster, he moved in several months ago outside and earns his keep by guarding the birds. He has run off Hawks, Roadrunners, Owls, and many other animals. He took on a rattlesnake, he was almost bitten, but he got it out of the yard. Unfortunately the birds don't appreciate him much and pick on him a lot. They grab his tail, steal his food, and peck him when he's asleep in the sun. He's never attacked any of them, I've only seen him swat one roo that went after his mashed potatos and that was Nugget.

    That's wonderful! [​IMG] You are truly fortunate to have such a dedicated guardian cat adopt your family and take such good care of your chicken kids. [​IMG]

    He had a plump ring-neck dove for dinner this evening with a side of 9-lives Turkey and Giblets. Considering how much easier it would be to snack on baby duck and little chicks, I love that cat!
