Thomas cat has started to go outsides! He beings very norty, he did do catchings three birds! The first one was a robin, which he left in the kitchen! Mummy was repulsed and very upset. He then got a blackbird - but at this point, we did not know who was catching them - it could have been Yazz. Mummy was in the back garden one day, and Thomas was under the Boston Ivy which stretches the whole length of the garden - she heard him moving about, then he shot out with a starling in his mouth, she tried to get to the back door before he did - but, no, he was in the house, and under the coffee table, growling with this bird. Mummy got a tea towel and managed to flick it at him. He ran off, without the bird - which was not deceased. Mummy had to remove the bird.
Mummy said, now she knew who it was, she would be getting him a collar with a bell on it. But, did not expect it to stay on him more than a hour. So, she bought him a very nice black one with white spots - and a very large bell! He did not object to having it put on! Much to mummy's surprise. It has stayed on too. But he does now have two bells on !
No more birds have been caught since, so the bells are working! Mummy now even thinking about having cat proof fencing installed, this would stop Thomas going under the ivy too!
