Is your cat looking like the 'cat that ate the canary'? If you love cats as well as garden birds read further for some tips on how to prevent attacks.
Cats and Garden Birds
Extract from web article, reproduced here with kind permission from the National Council of SPCAs: https://nspca.co.za/
Cats are individuals and their behaviour varies widely. Some are prolific hunters. They will catch whatever they come across rather than actively hunting a particular species. This means that whatever is most abundant or most vulnerable is most likely to be caught. Cats will catch prey regardless of whether or not they are hungry.
Is there any such thing as a bird-friendly garden?
- ♥Where cats may be a problem, avoid putting food on the ground but use a bird table where cats cannot reach it.
♥Place feeders high off the ground but away from surfaces from which a cat could jump.
♥Place spiny plants or an uncomfortable surface around the base of the feeding station to prevent cats sitting underneath.
♥Place an upturned tin or cone underneath the feeding table to prevent cats from climbing the post.
♥Position any nest boxes where cats cannot reach them or sit close to them (preventing the parent birds from getting to the box).
