And the Chicken Shall Lie Down with the Cats

Here is a photo of the chicken that has decided to live with our kittens.

From the left, you see Max (who suspects this bird may be good to eat), the bird (whom we call Chicken, even if she’s not), and Duke (who looks a little wary here). The three often eat together in perfect harmony. Today they were milling around the shed, waiting for me to feed them. Unfortunately, I spooked the bird by hanging around with my camera, so I didn’t get any pictures of the group feed. Maybe tomorrow.

Patrice Jones at the Eastern Shore Sanctuary and Education Center told me about friendly and amusing cat-chicken interactions there. For instance, there was the kitten who tried to interest the chickens in a game of “chase me.”

Excellent photos!
