The Better Bush To Hunt Under

Time to sleep after the hunt
One of our grumpy neighbors annoyed with her life hates cats, dogs and I assume all other living things around. She once called me at home saying my big and furry cat Lyova was scaring her by sitting too close to her door, and that I should keep my cat in my own home.
I went out and looked: Lyova had such a wonderful "hunting spot" just under that particular evergreen bush in the Cypress family. I thought, I would definitely pick that same observation point if I was a cat. What to do, what to do? I thought for a while, and yes, got an idea.
I picked up a few walnuts I had at home and threw them under another bush next to my own patio. The birds came soon enough, and so did Lyova.
Everyone is happy now: the birds are getting fed, the neighbor is not going to be "abducted" by a scary ball of fur, and Lyova has a much better "strategic location". She can watch all the birds and butterflies in the area safe and sound:-).
