We have a pair of mockingbirds that have a nest in a nearby tree and they’ve taken to taunting Spanky on a daily, hourly basis. They are doing what they instinctively should do – defend their babies from predators However, you see Spanky, is not really a predator or cat he’s a a “wussy cat.” He doesn’t hunt mice or even birds – he’s a lover not a fighter. No, siree, he’d much rather snooze on his favorite chair or lounge on hood of the car. About the only thing Spanky is good for is a cuddle object by us mere humans but he can only tolerates a little love at a time.
While out with the goats in the morning Jordanne captured one of the mockingbirds trying to drive Spanky away. But as you can see from his demeanor, he could care less the ruckus the poor mockingbird was making. So, to give the poor mockingbird some peace of mind, I went and took Spanky down from his morning lookout post (he wasn’t too thrilled about that) and put in on his favorite chair on the porch.
Then only a few minutes later guess what? The mockingbird spotted Spanky on the porch and flew in to taunt him once again. Spanky, minding his own business on his comfy throne, decided he had enough of this crazed bird antics and went inside the house for some peace and quiet.
