Here’s a cat who’s appointed herself the protector of a flock of chickens. She won’t even let them fight with each other. She sleeps with a couple of the baby chicks–and see what happens? They’ve imprinted on her! They follow her around. And if any stray cat manages to sneak into the chicken-yard–well, he’ll be sorry.
I’m sure my iguana would’ve done the same things if I’d provided him with a yard full of chickens.
