    If Jimbo hadn’t fixed his house, the birdie would have raised the roof!

    @Macushlalondra from yesterday: I am amazed to find someone who bathes a cat monthly. For me it was once in a lifetime, when she got grease on her from going under a car. I looked like I had been through a meat grinder. I do admire you.

    Sweet folks! And Pasquale will grow up to be as noble as Jimbo.

    Ooooh… poor cold little birdy in panel 5 – I hope Pasquale brought warm twigs!

    I LOVE the fact that the whole family loves animals and nature. They provide homes and food for all the critters around them. I do too but I wish I could get close to all of mine the way they do. My little stinkers run every time they see me coming but if I’m filling up their feeders, they sit in the trees and chirp at me to hurry up then the minute I’m back inside, they all swarm to them. I would love for them to stick around the way those do here.

    What birds nest in the winter ?

    There are birds that don’t migrate with the seasons. Like year-round mammals grow more insulating fur, those birds grow more insulating feathers. Usually, their outer feathers also change colors to be more muted.

    I’ve been assured by birding experts that you canNOT train a wild bird to not migrate, so only non-migratory birds will stay over the winter.

    But during the winter they generally roost in warmer more sheltered places. They use my nesting boxes during the warm weather when they lay eggs.

    There’s three kinds of red birds you might encounter in colder climates. One is the Cardinal Finch which dosen’t use nesting boxes. A second is the Scarlet Tanager, which I doubt you’ll see very much outside of forests (won’t use feeders or nesting boxes). The third type is the Hallmark Christmass ornament. This is the type that lives in the Gumbo’s back yard.

    When we moved to an apartment with indoor hallways, our cat got worms from fleas, and since she was tiny to begin with, she dropped below the weight you can use flea powders/ collars and the drops gave her nurological issues before we even left the vet’s office (that was scary, esp for the vet!) so we had to give her a bath with baby shampoo EVERY WEEK for several months and every other week as long as we were in that apartment (boy was I glad when the lease was up.)
    .
    So long as the water was warm enough, and we kept a hand on her tummy, she was okay, but it was a two person job.

    We have Cardinals here year round. A lot of the woodpeckers are here year round too.

    One of our vets said you shouldn’t bathe a cat, they are too susceptible to colds & their fur takes too long to dry. I can certainly understand the oil thing though, much better to bathe the cat than to let them lick the oil off of their fur.

    @Zaphod Beeblebrox

    Those in comic strips LOL. This bird missed the migration with his flock earlier this year & just stayed around.
