It is very inconvenient to cat-lovers to be also extremely fond of birds. But-- Notes from Nature's Garden, by Frances Anne Bardswell (London: Longmans, Green, and Co., p. 129)
things might be worse than they are. Many birds, such as robins and thrushes,
taste bitter, I am told, for which reason cats do not care to eat them. It is
seldom a robin is killed; in the annals of our garden only one case is recorded
in the course of many years, and that was a young robin who ran in front—like
chickens do— of motor-cars.
