When the spring comes and the temperatures start to rise, cats and dogs start shedding their winter fur. To avoid having the fur come off little by little and stick everywhere, it’s more effective to brush them properly. This way not only do you get more of their shed hair off, but it is quality time spent with the pet as well; and it can be done while watching TV or something for people who are too impatient.
When you brush your pets, you’ll collect fair-sized chunks of fur from the brush. Instead of throwing these in the garbage, split them up into smaller lumps and toss them around the yard for birds to pick up and line their new nests for when they start having baby birds.
It seems strange that birds would bring cat fur into their homes since cats are supposed to be their natural predators, but they do, and it’s much softer than twigs and such. (It makes sense in a way: predators help their prey to survive and reproduce so that they’ll have something to prey on). Either way, it’s nature and the circle of life.
