Some cats at the Chico Cat Coalition practice their stalking skills on a pigeon that landed nearby.

Reddit user Bohemous uploaded this great image of a group of cats all concentrating on a pigeon or two sitting safely on the other side of a chain link fence bordering an outdoor cat enclosure at the Chico Cat Coalition no-kill sanctuary in Chico, CA.

We visited the Chico Cat Coalition Facebook page this morning and found the photo also posted there, with this introduction, “It was an exciting morning at the shelter, as two brave/crazy pigeons were landing on the ground right outside the cats’ outdoor enclosure. If you look at the picture, you’ll see the pigeon at the far left in the center. Those are some intent cats!”

The Chico Cat Coalition is a nonprofit, all volunteer organization that currently has about 60 adoptable cats at their sanctuary. All of the cats rescued by the Chico Cat Coalition are spayed or neutered then cared for until the organization’s small but dedicated group of volunteers can place them in adoptive homes. Of the cats they have rescued, over 740 have found permanent loving homes. Any cat not adopted can live out its days at the sanctuary.  The organization lost its funding from the City of Chico after the 2011/2013 fiscal year, so is now funded entirely through private donations.
