    Thor, 18 week old Splash Orp Roo

    Roomie's Obnoxious Wench

    So, this morning my beloved little 18 week old Splash Orpington roo is in the kitchen for a visit and breakfast. He got a scratch a few days ago during an earthquake and I have been spoiling him rotten....but he was having a small plate of grapes, leftover steamed rice and broccoli while I was cooking scrambled eggs for everyone else. My roomie has this female cat that is an obnoxious fat spotted nuisance. So, Thor is enjoying his breakfast and I am cooking when the Wench comes strolling through the diningroom and into the kitchen. Thor's head is down towards his plate when the Fat Rat pops around the corner near where he was eating. What happened next was priceless!

    Thor stands up and stretches himself really tall...cat stops dead in her tracks....Thor screams his deep voiced "I will hurt you" scream (which sounds like a cross of a T-Rex and a cornered Raptor) ...Cat spins to run for it and Thor grabs the cat by the hind quarter...cat is screaming and trying to get traction...Roo is hanging on to the cat's butt. Finally, Cat gets traction and runs for it...Thor let her go and stands there proudly "bruuuuuuuuurrrrrrrring" at me like he done a good thing (which he had)...with a beak full of cat fur! [​IMG]

    Cat came slinking out of her room later and she has a nice bald spot on her backside but she steered very clear of the area where Thor had been hours before.

    So Rooster 1 Obnoxious Cat - 1 spot of fur

    LOL I have yet to have a bird leave any...chicks yes but the older ones and adult not yet. It will happen one day I am sure...that is what paper towels, mop and bucket are for, if it happens! [​IMG]

    Good rooster! Gooooood, Thor! Gotta love a cat-stomping rooster! [​IMG] Yep, he'll be a great protector for the ladies. So, guess you'd call this a real Predator (Thor) and Pest (cat) story!

    Exactly...that cat is a HUGE pest...you already know what I think about her [​IMG] If she had turned to scratch him I would have punted her like a football! Mean ornery hateful thing.

    Great going THOR. I'd love to see a video of that too. I am NOT of the cat friendly persuasion. Just how big is Thor, he look huge on your lap. Yay, chickens need another Hero.
