Pesky Pussy............

By NaturesHaven    
This cat is called Tuppence and it belongs to a neighbour, he is a beautiful animal but an expert bird killer, I have saved quite a few tweets from the jaws of this cat.............rumour has it that his owners are moving........get the flags out time me thinks...........he is a gorgeous looking cat but there are times when naughty thoughts cross my mind.............GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Many thanks to Slowsong and christinecilia for their unexpected but very welcome User Awards for my conducting Goose............very much appreciated...........GrinGrin

Thanks to all for your lovely comments on said Goose and for all the votes..............GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Please note This is NOT my Cat so I can't put a collar and bell on it...........

I have 2 cats of my own which have collars and bells on when they are let loose in the garden..............GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Beautifully captured Julia, certainly done him justice Smile If only he knew of those naughty thoughts you have about him.......I don't think he would have been quite so obliging with posing SmileTongueWink

He just needs a collar with a loud bell on it - he certainly is a beautiful cat - I very much like the way you've captured him and processed the image.

I must say though that Tuppence sounds more like a name for a female - it might have given him an attitude....

A lovely looking animal indeed.. a large bell I agree would do the trick. A fab picture, so instead of feed the birds Tuppence a bag it's feed the Tuppence birds in a bag????

Sorry Julia, this is a really nice shot, the processing works exceedingly well.

I heard on the grapevine that a couple viewing your neighbour's house have a collection of avivores, who are specialized predators of birds, and like their pets to roam free. They have reptiles, ferrets, snakes, weasels, turtles, possums, raccoons and a pet monkey, and they want to put a pond in the garden for their alligator. Their prize pet is a Goliath bird-eating spider, a tarantula of epic proportions!
But don't worry, they'll probably think the kitchen is too small.
So Tuppence is a real "pussy cat" compared to thatWink.

Nice picture, Julia, love the paw in the air and eye contact.

He is a fine looking moggy Julia, but I do sympathise with you about your birds.

What a glorious cat. It only does what comes naturally, but it is sad for the victims. Super image.

A beautiful capture of a beautiful pusscat. Much as I love cats, it maddens me too, that even the best fed of them go after the birds etc., but that's their nature. SadSad

A beautiful cat, i have 2 cats, they just ignore the birds in the garden, but you can never trust them completely.

I feel for you ! And this is a fantastic ginger tom shot, well processed.
got two cats myself and one of them kills sometimes a bird even though he has a bell... but it happens once or twice a year only now when the young ones are out. the main feeder is far too high to reach

A fine pussy portrait, he certainly is a handsome animal. I'm sure Tomcat would like to add him to his collection of ginger toms!WinkGrin
Superb portrait of a superb cat... he looks as though he carries six times his own weight in attitude!
