I often refer to our outdoor cat, Emma, as the coop kitty, but I didn't realize how true that was until last weekend when I found her in a most unusual place.
I headed to the coop to check for eggs and discovered her in the nesting box right beside Feather Legs! It totally cracked me up, but Emma just sat there looking at me like it was the most natural thing in the world for a cat to hang out in nesting boxes with a chicken.
Feather Legs didn't seem to mind her presence, except for when Emma thought she'd stick her paw through a hole in the divider between the boxes and give Feather Legs a little encouraging tap on the wing. Feather Legs wouldn't have any of that and gave Emma a good peck. Emma respectfully kept her distance after that warning peck!

After I had collected the eggs laid so far that day and was ready to leave the coop, Emma stayed at her post. I thought she would run after me and play like she normally does, but apparently she was serious about trying to lay an egg. Sometimes I think she believes she is a chicken!
