Cat Stop, Again

Back in February I posted that I was going to try the Cat Stop device. A couple of days ago, I saw a cat sitting next to the Cat Stop, playing with something. I don't know what it was playing with, and I really don't want to know! So, the Cat Stop does not work for me. There are good reviews for the device, so it must work for some people. I cannot allow cats to antagonize and kill my birds, so I have to try something else. And no, I do not plan to harm the cats! Cats are not real fond of water, so I thought I would try motion triggered sprinklers. I ordered two different types, both through Amazon. Contech Electronics Scarecrow Motion-Activated Sprinkler and the Havahart Spray Away Motion Activated Water Repellent. The only problem will be the oil delivery man. I do not think he would appreciate a shower when he delivers my oil!

The Wingscapes camera caught something that I never saw before, a dove at the feeder. They are regularly on the ground under the feeder, but never ON the feeder.
