    In my case it is the Green Jays, Woodpeckers, Greater Kiskadees, and Curve Billed Thrashers. Oh, I almost forgot yes the chicken fly up to the cat feeding station too. Pictures are welcome.

    When I had cats years ago, all kinds of birds loved to snatch the cat food. Thieving also done by our dog, raccoons and my 4 year old son. :rolleyes:

    No outdoor cats, but coons, possum, squirrels, etc will snatch it.

    The only thing we have around here on that list are the possums, but the cat loves killing those anyway. Anything that can put up a good fight he loves to kill minus the chicken for some reason they scare him now(I'm sure it was the broody hens that broke the cat).

    Cat food is kept inside, in the basement. Nobody gets it but the cats! Can't afford to feed wild things and don't want them around. Trash is kept locked up in the well house for the same reason. No critters!

    We have a family that has now grown to 5 Green Jays that after 2 years are now slightly habituated to us. This bird is usually extremely shy it has been forever since I have photographed on so would need to dig really hard to find pictures of them feeding, but will put on a lens for photographing them just one yard away from my computer chair for you. Or google images of them will explain why I don't mind buying the largest cat food bag at TSC on a monthly basis to keep my Green Jays close.

    Found an old photo:

    here is a copy paste of an old post regarding the cat:
    My Cat Killed a fully mature possum again. I noticed it two days ago and today tossed the remains over the back fence to my deed restricted land for the drainage district. Warning pretty gross picture is going to be attached. Also I am going to attach a picture of the 14 pound murderer. The chicken got to it before I thought to get a photo of it. [​IMG] [​IMG]
