Over the last couple of years or so there's been more an more families of crows moving into the neighborhood. They'd get loud every once and a while, but pretty much kept to themselves. The numbers keep going up and there pushing into yards and out of the woods. These things are getting constantly more aggressive.
They'd scream at the old cat from the woods or the edge of the yard. But he wasn't interested in much but the porch, so they reached a balance. It was even funny sometimes. There'd be crows screaming at him, just stressing out from the trees in the front, while he'd sit with his front paws hanging off the top step with his face towards the sun and his eyes closed, half asleep.
Now they're chasing the kitten all the way onto the porch. They'll even sit and eyeball me when I come out to chase them off like they're making up they're minds whether or not they can take me. There is no choice as I see it. When the race is over I'm seeing a trip to Academy to purchase an air rifle. We're gonna start out with bb's as a discouragement, if that don't work we start dropping black feathered carcasses.
I didn't start it, but.......
