Our cat helped build a swallow's nest! - jcline - 05-20-2011

Our dear, sweet cat gave up some of her abundance of hair she sheds 24/7...to the Violet Green Swallow's for nest building materials this year. Since birds have no sense of smell...I thought it was appropriate that cats get a good name for "something". Our cat never goes outside...but she loves watching the birds from a sunny windowsill. She has to earn her keep somehow! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Barn Swallows are not in our immediate area...at least I have never seen one. However, they do inhabit the wildlife preserve about 10 miles down the road from me. They sure are messy with their nests and all the droppings though. Not sure I want that on my house! lol [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
