A Wild Life
Quick sketch - a photo was impossible as this was a grey day, a grey cat and grey tree... and all a bit too far away too!
These magpies looked as though they were determined to tease the cat up into the thinnest parts of the tree. Once there they flew off and the cat started coming down again, with a very angry swing to its tail.... the magpies had a second attempt but this time the cat was not fooled into thinking it would catch one and carried on down the tree.
In all there were four magpies involved though mostly just two at a time.
Have you seen a cat being teased to jump like this? Do they ever jump?
