    Aren't they cute? lol. I'm assuming it's a neighbor's cat, but what's funny is the prints go from my back door, across the deck, down the steps, across the yard right up to the door of the duck house. I half expected to open the door and find a kitty sleeping with them, lol!

    Got them all over our deck--cat prints. We have two males and one female and the boys wait until the female has gone out into the snow then walk in her tracks so it looks like one set of prints.

    Our neighbors barn cats have been known to spend the night in our chicken coop...the girls don't seem to mind. When we first got banties, the cats would stalk them, but the discovered that our older hens would in turn stalk the cats...nothing funnier than a cat getting ready to pounce, only to be attacked by 3 or 4 mad hens. Our Australorps are big, tough, and smart, and the cats quickly decided there was easier prey...now, they nap in the coops during the day, and somtimes at night as well.
