Housework...

I have come to the conclusion that housework is pointless if one has cats.

As soon as I remove one pigeon carcass and hoover up the feathers, the kitties bring me another one. I suspect that the cats have discovered a source of birdseed which they are using as bait.

Has they got bells round their necks, sister?

No. I don't like the idea of putting collars on cats (I'd be worried they'd get caught) and bells would be just plain mean... as well as driving me nuts after 5 mins.

Besides which, I'm rather proud of my kitties' prowess in the hunting department...

Well, my grandmothers cleaned up deer in the kitchen shot by the uncles and grandpa; and my mom cleaned up smaller mammals, which we ate, shot by dad and his brothers. So...I suggest you get a big butcher block table, some real knives, and a Dutch Oven. I think these cats are priceless sources of free protein.

who can get ruffled at a little face like that?

I'm with Supertradmum on this one. Once Lent is over, of course. Perhaps you need to get some lessons in chicken processing to help you along?

One only needs a big pot of really hot boiling water to start. This makes the feathers fall off, or plucking easier...We might all need your new skills in the future....

There is a virtue in housework. Really. I thought this morning that I might as well hoover the bedroom while its usual large feline occupant who's terrified of hoovers was out bothering the few birds that our local sparrowhawk has left. And I found a perfect little dessicated mouse behind the bedside cabinet, which explained the bad smell of the last week.
I notice your Kitty Kill list includes not a single rat.Be very grateful for that.

BTW, Mac, I've awarded you a Liebster Award - see here http://ccfather.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/the-liebster-award-helping-blog.html Onerous, but may result in some new people passing by...

I think there's something far more worrying going on. Have you checked the local personal ads "Wanted -- pretty birds to model for cat - inquire (then it gives your address!)" Your cats have figured out how to use your computer. Have you noticed a spike in catnip orders with your credit cards used for same?
