Here’s an ominous picture of a stray cat who periodically visits our yard. He does not have a collar. So I am assuming he does not belong to anyone. But perhaps someone is feeding him since he is moving around the backyards on our block. This picture makes him a little evil with his green eyes and brown striped nose.
The cat seems a little shy. Once he sees me, he runs quickly away. If I knew the cat, I do love playing with cats.
But I have a dilemma. I have been working on my hummingbird sanctuary in my backyard. Lately as I have been sitting in my yard waiting for these quick flying birds to visit, I have been disappointed. They have not been coming to get their picture taken. I am wondering if this cat is scaring them away.
I set up surveillance and noticed this cat visiting in the dark. I also noticed one of the birds who visited previously is missing. I really hope this cat did not go after that bird.
What is my next course of action? I purchased ultrasonic animal repeller with a movement sensors. I took them out of the yard anticipating rain coming. I decided I will set these up again. When the sensors are set off by movement, then a high pitched sound goes off and hopefully will send the cat away.
Let’s see if these animal repellers help the hummingbirds feel safe to return to my backyard so I can continue to enjoy their company.
