Feral Cat and Mallards

The wild house cats in our neighborhood always hang around the house across the pond because no one stays there year round.  This multicolored one came down to the water to drink and was only a few feet from the Mallard couples who did not mind him a bit. And he merely drank paying them no mind and then went on his way...

I would guess that the cat weighs close to 20 lbs.  You can see how big he is in relation to the Mallard's size which is large!

There is always something going on in my little backyard haven that I view daily from my den window.  I am blessed.                                                
My wild heart to yours...

You are lucky that the cat doesn't chase the ducks. It is amazing what you can see and I miss my wildlife that I had before all of the houses were built around me. I saw my bunny rabbit as I went out the door to work and it made me think of my blogging friend Michelle over at the Raspberry Rabbits. It is funny what makes us think of different ones of our friends. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs and prayers from Your Missouri Friend.
