Pumpkin is the Godfather of all cats. I truly know that I am owned by him and not the other way around. He will see a car coming down the road and take his sweet time crossing the street (much to my horror!), and look at the car like “Yea, try to make me move.” But it is his “I own this place” attitude that makes everyone just get out of his way. It also means that he is well know by all the neighbors for blocks for opening doors, getting in to houses, eating their food, and just being Pumpkin.
Needless to say two Mocking birds protecting their nest is not going to interrupt where Pumpkin has decided to rest. He did finally move because I made him so the birds would calm down. It was a rough few weeks getting dived bombed by the Mocking birds every time we tried to enter the house, but they have since moved on once their young left the nest.
