Just catching up now, Jcatbird . You know my *PRAYERS* and loving best thoughts and wishes are always for, and with, you all.tarasgirl06 I suffer without as much corn as I crave. I actually put some creamed corn in my cornbread. It isn’t sweet except for the sugar in the corn. That’s enough and it makes it a less dry bread. Yum!!
I know that cats get blamed for bird decline but it is only the rare time when a cat gets a bird. Birds are so aware of the cats that they even watch them and alert each other to the prescience of a cat. I have often used the bird alerts to track cats I was searching for outside. The birds lead me straight to them! Blue Jays set off alarms to any threat, cat, hawk, snake and human! Birds are awesome! The ferals here hunted rodents. They make amazing guardians for us humans. It is humans that need to take better care of things. Time to guard our earth! Protect the woods, air and water ways. Past time but never too late. Nature is great about healing and correcting. She is very patient with us.
Whenallhellbreakslose Thank you for the prayers. My brother had to go back in hospital and will be allowed some healing time before more surgery. I think he will be allowed to heal awhile at home. It would be great if he could get a break.
BJ has doubled his appetite and this is wonderful to see. He is really enjoying his food again. Yay! I was so relieved to find the food we needed! It was a lot of stuff to load up but now I can rest easy for a bit.
I am being sent a compounded medicine for my foot. I am told it usually works well. Moving forward, step by step. Staying Pawsitive!
And yes, cats actually HELP bird and other species by most often only catching the old, sick, and weak, strengthening the gene pools of their prey species; but birds are far down on most cats' list if their natural prey, mice, rats and other small rodents, is available. The cats who prey mostly on birds are most often cats for whom other prey is unavailable. It takes a tremendous amount of energy to catch birds. Predators do not expend energy unless they must.
