Ingrid Taylar: Bridging the Divide Between Cat and Bird Lovers

10,000 Birds

Years ago, I became a wildlife volunteer and advocate because of a cat who caught a bird. Now, he lay frightened and ruffled in my hands, his tail tattered, his feathers damp from the maw of a cat named Puck. The wildlife center was an hour away if I was lucky. Back then, I didn’t know enough about birds, but I knew a lot about cats. day, I had come home to a scraggy, skittish stray of my own. That was my first trip to California Wildlife Center.
