Hunting Canaries? We Don't Think So!

Posted by F&S

Princess Peony, one of the calico Persian cats, is a very persistent bird hunter.  We understand that cats are carnivorous and that bird hunting is simply instinctual.  However, we have to draw the line at Martha’s pet canaries.  Leave the canaries alone!

  • Hi everybody,
    I was wondering where you all were and how everyone was feeling. Basil, at least they know what you have now and it sounds like you are responding to treatment so that is fantastic news.
    Those swans on the last post were beautiful, not as handsome as me or my GK, but they were alright. The canaries are such a vibrant colorm as am I. Speaking of me, I am leaving on Saturday to go back to my co-owners to spend some time with them again. So, mom said I have to get a bath so I am presentable when I go to Maryland. This is fun, going back and forth cause when I go to each place, they missed me so much that when I get there I am pampered and showered with all kinds of new toys and treats. I have a good thing going here. I give them a kiss or two and they eat that up. What a racket. hehehehe
    Stay cool,
    Maddox

  • Hello All,
    I am sure glad Mama Martha keeps you canaries protected. I know if the doors weren't locked those cats would go to town. Peony doesn't realize that she is being just like she doesn't want G.K. to be to her. You better be nice all you kitty cats. Have a great Wednesday all and Maddox will you be able to blog to us from the home you are visiting. I hope so. I will miss you Dude if not. Enjoy the pampering.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Princess Peony that is a NO-NO! not mommie Maratha's beautiful house canaries....but then you already know that, you are just testing to see if the birds are on alert...right?

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Birds and cats don’t mix at all. The cat usually will loose out on that battle unless they really become smart. My Daddy told me about a cat one time. A cat was “buzz bombed” by a bird every day. The cat was seen on it’s back in the yard each day after that. One day the bird came by, while the cat was on it’s back, and the cat caught it. Cats are almost as smart as Chow Chows are; right Maddox? It’s time to catch up on being smart. That’s why Chow Chows sleep a lot. We’re refreshing our brains.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., Welcome back again! Sure miss you whenever there isn't a Daily Wag blog posted-now I feel much more happy!!! These photos of Martha's beautiful canaries and beautiful Princess Peony are outstanding and the comments are fabulous!! I've never seen canaries up close and these are beautiful! Sure hope all three of you are having fun at the farm and I'm sure you will be very happy when Martha returns from Mexico! Maddox, sure hope you have fun in Maryland and hope you will be able to post more comments for us to enjoy! Basil, I'm sure it's very hard to deal with Chrones, but it's great to read that you are feeling much better-our prayers are with you as usual! Hope everyone has a terrific day and I'm sure Dear God is watching out for all of us! Love Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • I adored this post. I love the dogs, but the cats need equal time as well. Cats are graceful, beautiful and love birds which makes it very funny to see Princess Peony coveting those canaries. The canaries are lovely birds.

  • hmm..this could be a scene from my house. My cat buddy, Kit-Bang, also likes birds. Hummingbirds are her favorite target, thank goodness they are fast...indoors the parakeets take a lot of her time up..my other buddy, Marmot, the bengal cat prefers bigger game..pigeons! Indoors Marmot prefers watching Wally the lizard. Yikes!

  • Hi Everyone! I'm Sophia, my mommy's new rescue in TX-I helped ease her pain when her eldest pug went over the rainbow bridge...now we're best friends and I go running alongside the golf cart every night! Maddox, have fun being spoiled, and Basil, so glad you are feeling better. Try to stay cool, everyone!

  • Once, a beautiful white persian cat found its way to our house. We hoped to find the owner - so took her in. She was a little different - would not jump off the coffee tble and put her paw in the water dish to check the temp. Strange - she had the most beautiful big blue eyes but alas, she was blind. We thought ok she will be good for us because we raise cockatoos and would be afraid to keep a regular cat. So when the birds flapped wings or flew she was after them with glee. No sight - but fantastic hearing hearing. We found her a great home.
