This Chausie, “Bushwah” a male F1, who was Alpha male assertive when living with the Flicks,  is seen here facing (very close) a Macaw. Bushwah was fearless and inquisitive. Helmi says, “a Macaw is not something you want to mess with .. they have a lot of strength in their beak”. So, this shows once again the more assertive, active and less retiring character of the F1 wild/domestic F1 hybrids. My Moggie would have trotted off into a dark corner and peeked out to see what was going on!

Hi, I'm a 71-year-old retired solicitor (attorney in the US). Before qualifying I worked in many jobs including professional photography. I have a girlfriend, Michelle. I love nature, cats and all animals. I am concerned about their welfare.
