13Mar21: “The Scary Feather” is gone!

Andy used to play with this, but something happened that turned it into “The Scary Feather”.

If I pulled it out, Andy hightailed to the other room! Out of compassion for my kitty boy, I finally tossed “The Scary Feather” out. That done, I had a spare pole to attach the mousie toy to.

  1. ๐Ÿ™€ wow โ—๏ธ Washe cat gets spooked if he breaks a turkey feather, whilst he leaves my dream catchers alone ๐Ÿ˜ฑ However we still got a hat box full of wild turkey feathers. Washe & Emmy Lou would share some with Andy ๐Ÿฑ but can not send via gmail.comโ—๏ธ and if sent with US ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ mail or any other carrier it is a federal violation shipping protected wild animal parts. Washe, Emmy, & I enjoy living together but do not want a 6’x8′ cell at Ft. Leavenworth ๐Ÿฅถ

      Yes, the Federal law of that are pretty stringent. An artist friend found some great horned owl feathers in the cemetery (where there is a nest used annually by a pair) and took them to her studio to use as models for a painting. She had a visit by a Game & Parks guy who confiscated them and gave her a lesson in the law. Fortunately, she didn’t fight the issue, but she was pretty frightened by the experience.

      • I am a former vice president of Nebraska Ornithologists’ Union, so am more familiar with things like the law on possession of bird feathers or actual birds, living or dead.

        • Good for You Doug ๐Ÿ™‚ There is a serious reason for those regulations. ( I got the hunting certificate for that turkey) However if a bird drops me a feather instead of defecating on me I put it in one of my ‘dream catchers’ but would never barter a gift from Mother Nature ๐Ÿฆ… ๐•€๐•ฅ’๐•ค ๐•Ÿ๐• ๐•ฅ ๐•˜๐• ๐• ๐•• ๐•ฅ๐•  ๐•ž๐•–๐•ค๐•ค ๐•จ๐•š๐•ฅ๐•™ ๐•„๐• ๐•ฅ๐•™๐•–๐•ฃ โ„•๐•’๐•ฅ๐•ฆ๐•ฃ๐•– โšก๏ธ ~Willy
