I’ve been wondering why I have never seen a bird in my new DIY birdbath….well now I know why. While talking on the phone with my friend Claudia the other day I mentioned I hadn’t seen any birds bathing, she said it would take some time but once they found it they would continue to come back. Well I now see why there’s no birds. Apparently our cat thinks I put it out there just to be her own little watering station.
I surely will never have a bird if Pirate Morgan Moon Scar keeps this up. The only other critter I have seen near the birdbath was a chipmunk, he was so cute I hated to scare him off. Our kitty is so old, 17, so I won’t scold her but the purpose of a birdbath is for the birds to use not the cat.
Normally when she sees me get the camera out she runs, I am assuming she doesn’t like the click sound the shutter makes. But not tonight she sat right there and let me catch her in the act. I guess the birdbath is now the cats water bowl 🙁
