Added a bit on mine too.The only bit I'll add in my defence to the cat-haters is that, having never owned a cat, I took in a stray last year, who turned out to be pregnant . I kept one kitten. However, I kept both in till he was 6 months old and they don't stray, are both micro-chipped, and never allowed out at night. My bird feeders are in places they can't reach. I have had to net my raised beds as when I put up a fleece tent earlier this year they both thought it was a nice little house to keep the rain off them. I find the old squirt with water trick helps to keep them off too. Cats can be trained, it's mainly the owners who are the problem. If I ever find out who owned the mother, I'll present them with a bill for £500, which is what it cost in vets bills for 4 kittens.
