Fred Griffin: Wild Turkey vs. the Neighbor's Siamese Cat! Thanksgiving Photos

Wild Turkey vs. the Neighbor's Siamese Cat! Thanksgiving Photos

     A bizarre encounter between a Wild Turkey and the neighbor's Siamese Cat occurred in our yard today.  The Turkey showed up early this morning.  She pecked around in the front yard for a while, occassionally calling for a mate or for a friend who did not answer.  The Turkey made her way closer and closer to the neighbor's hedge, when who should appear but the Siamese Cat!    

Wild Turkey with Siamese Cat

     This cat stays indoors most of the time; it is very well groomed and quite pretty.  It also carries that air of defiance that is peculiar to most Siamese cats.  My cats are not afraid of anything; they will hiss at foxes, stray cats, even deer.  But THIS cat they back away from!

     Interestingly, this encounter occurred in the same exact place where the Bald Eagle landed last week, and in the same part of the yard where Henry the Black Cat napped next to the Vultures!

     The Turkey finally got enough, and flew up into the Tree Tops.  Kitty went home, and after a time, the Turkey swooped back down to the ground and returned to her pecking and eating.

Fred, I'm glad all is well in your backyard and with the turkey.  Many turkeys won't be so lucky this Thanksgiving.

Survivalist say that if the end comes kill all the cats because they will eat up everything and leave nothing for humans. They say dogs too, but I believe the dog creates a pack with humans and will bring you stuff to eat. So no to killing dogs if the world as we know it ends.

Kathleen - that cat actually trotted toward the Turkey.  If it had killed it, I would have cleaned it and cooked it.  Not that I wanted to!

Sussie - my cats will sometimes bring a dead rabbit, bird or squirrel and lay it on the door mat.  Their "Gift" to us.

Fred - I'm laying odds on the turkey all the way in this match up!  We occasionally get them strolling through our yard, but I haven't seen a cat with dreams as grand as this one.

A.J.  - that cat came over later in the day to stare down my cats.  After getting a good look at it - yes, I would put my money on the Turkey!

Fred, I've never seen anything so violent as a turkey fight so my money is on the turkey.  Interesting this point is drawing so many opportunities for great photos.  Keep sharing!  Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Fred,  It seems that some animals aren't afraid of anything.  If it were me, I would get the heck out of Dodge. I guess it has to do with nowing the consequences.
