I always get really upset when I see one of my backyard birds have died...
My neighbors' all have cats and they are very into the "predator and prey" hunt. I know, I know, it is the "Circle of Life", but I just wish they wouldn't kill my birds and then leave them at my doorstep to have to move... :(
