This is why we don't have a cat

In our backyard this is a flock of Crimson Rosellas making the most of the grass not being mowed for a few months. Nearby two King Parrots took over the recently installed bird feeder and made sure no other creature could share.

The photos were taken through a rather smeary kitchen window with a fetching background of the washing on the Hills Hoist.

It is good to see the native birds return to the backyard. A pair of Satin Bower birds were scratching through the compost heap last month and the Honeyeaters and Wattlebirds have been making the most of the flowering Grevillia.

When our Moggy was living up here the only indication we would find of native wildlife would be a pile of bloody feathers or a mangled possum carcass. Puss is now living quite happily in the Inner Suburbs of Sydney practicing his hunting skills on the local rats, mice and cockroaches.
