For some years now we have had a couple of seagull visit us and have thrown out a small amount of food each day.
We called these two Sid and Floppy, floppy because she had a deformed foot and he was a bigger than average bird.
They have never given us any trouble and came in the morning and again in the evening never bothering the cats.
Recently these two have stopped visiting and the reason will never be known but in their place we now have another two, obviously a pair as were the others.
But these are hanging around literally all day squawking and squeaking and generally making a nuisance of themselves.
This alone was not too bad but yesterday one of them attacked Princess as she was walking along the wall. She was not touched but of course it frightened her and now the whole lot of the cats are not keen on going out.
So, its no more food for these two and they are not at the moment getting the message.
I wonder how long it will take them to realise that there is no food here and stop visiting.
It's a shame as they are such beautiful, intelligent clever birds but the moggies must come first.
