My own cat doesn't mind him too much and they are often outside with eachother in the garden. I'm rather concerned about the cat. I...

    Okay, so I'm watching my little neighbor hatchlings grow and develop outside my window (they are now 9 days old), peeping and flopping around, etc. So wonderful! But -- I've noticed an increasing difference in their size. At first I just assumed that one is male and the other female, hence...

    Hey... :( I've had a cockateil for quite a while so I've just started getting to know birds after being a cat/dog lover. I'm kind of worried right now about a pigeon that I found: I was on my way to work when I saw a pigeon being attacked by crows in a grassy spot underneath the skytrain...
