Doesn't help that the geese each weighed at least twice what he did. And the ducks probably outweighed him as well.
But he was definitely being a pussy.
Large waterfowl, especially geese, don't generally fear housecats. In fact, they'll often attack cats when they have the advantage of numbers, or goslings that need protection. Skippy has the right idea... stay near the big human that feeds and protects him, and be ready to scramble onto the human's shoulder if the geese decide they've had enough of his presence.
Garrison they should be afraid of. Skippy is roughly 9-10lbs and wants to play more than anything. Garrison, however, is closer to 24lbs or so and will kill anything he can and eat it. Well, everything but half of the nose and an eye, that is.
Ask Amber about that...
