Who’s been eating MY seed?

Tonight, Cagney was a bit mean with the seed pots.

There are three seed pots for four of them.  They usually eat on some kind of rota system but I have often seen Raspy, Bezukhov & Cagney eat at the same time.  However, this evening, he wanted the three seed pots to himself.  Raspy wanted her bedtime seed but he was not letting her get it.  In the end, I offered seed to her from my hand which she readily took.

Cagney, of course wondered why she was getting preferential treatment…  He chased her off my hand so he could eat it.  Raspy, being a smart girl, went straight to the seed pots & resumed eating there.  I think it confused Cagney a bit as he could not be in two places at once, however hard he tries.

Hopefully this is one-off behaviour from Cagney, otherwise I will have to put a fourth seed pot in the East Wing of the Manor.

    If Cagney’s anything like Marshall, a 4th seedpot wouldn’t make a blind bit of difference. Marshie generally wants to eat from WHICHEVER POT IAN’S EATING FROM, and he would have no objection to chasing him round half a dozen seedpots so long as he could rile him.

      Yes, Atilla could be like that. My logic was that the more pots (or pegs of veg) there are, the more time it takes to cover them, giving the one being chased more time to eat something before being turfed off. 😀 Anyway, it seems Cagney hasn’t been on seed pot duty this evening…
