The grain loving house mouse was not as happy with cat-human love connection. Wildcats had no interest in eating grain but people probably encouraged them to hang around to deter mice.
The Wild Birds Unlimited - East Lansing store has 3 cats that have been the topic of several popular posts. My catty co-workers have given customers many chuckles over the years as they’ve greeted them with a meow, chased dropped pens, or cuddled up in the bird baths.
Originally all stray cats, my three amigos were brought indoors to provide them with a safe haven as well as to keep my wild birds safe from predation.
J.B is first on my list. A loyal worker for almost 20 years, he is acting Opurrational Director. If there are any problems, he is the voice of reason and is able to calm everyone down. Eli-Birder, his assistant for 9 years amazes customers with his GIANT gentleman's act and Hello-Dolly, with us for only 4 years, has taking over most greeting duties. Thank you for all your hard work guys!
