Ducks versus cats versus chicken

The cat sat in from of the door to get back inside – we don’t have any cat doors, for good reasons.

Three of our rescue ducks then decided that the door mat was a good place, too.

Funny to see the cat getting quite intimidated by the arrival of the ducks behind her and starting to freak and run away when one of the ducks started picking the cat’s tail.

So here’s something about the order of animals we have observed over the years :

Chickens rule, then ducks, then cats.

Would not really have expected that.

Muddy days

It’s been a few rather wet days. Some with intermittent sunshine but not enough to dry up the ground yet. The cats use the sunny breaks to go outside but other than that they seem to be in hibernation.

Time of the year again: Ducks, ducks, ducks

It’s that time of the year again where the cats and dogs in the neighbourhood start bringing in little chicks and ducklings.

While a few of last year’s rescue ducks have returned sporadically throughout the year, they now seem to be returning in larger numbers and bringing their boy friends along.
