Bird Nest Cat

Zebu is one of our older barn cats who a couple of winters ago decided that in her old age the fire in the stove looked mighty cozy and maybe those human beings weren't as scary as she'd thought before. So she has been spending much of her time sitting by the stove purring. She'll let you pet her or pick her up but doesn't really like it much. She is one of those long haired cats that leave little bits of fluff behind wherever they've been. I'm always picking up bits of Zebu fur and tossing it in the wastebasket. Well, today I saw a little chickadee picking up bits of her fur and carrying it off obviously for nest building. So now when I see a bit of white fur on the rug I'm carrying it outside and putting it where it can be found by the birds. And after checking back most of it is gone.
