The neighbors barn cat loves to hang out by the coop and watch the ladies. I never let them free range while the cat was there because she seemed way too interested. One day I was working in the garden while they were free ranging and I heard some squawking so ran quickly to see what was up. The cat was laying down chewing on something and the chickens were lined up about 10 feet away just staring at her. My heart sank thinking she caught one of the hens! As I got closer I was relieved to see that she was wolfing down a large mouse!
You go girl! Keep those critters away from the coop!
Honestly, the ladies looked a little jealous! I wonder…..would they have eaten the mouse?
