Thanks Pamela - and Maeve for your ideas. I have posted on Facebook - think I
will make a little poster for the end of our road first. I have been thinking about
trying to put a collar on it with a bell, but agree I would hate for the cat to be
choked running through the woods.
I am now even more upset (potentially) as it seems my beautiful red bellied
female, one of the most reliable/prominent birds at my feeders (a few broods
last summer, caching nuts all over our roofline) may be missing :( Haven't
seen her in a few days now, which is very odd... I had a house sitter here this
weekend and she said she heard a bird strike the window, and then saw a
woodpecker lying on the ground. She went to get her coat to go out, and the
bird was gone. I fear the cat may have been there at just the right time to get a
larger than average snack. So heartbroken if that was the case... praying she
is just off for a few days...
