My husband and I live in a nice three bedroom house in beautiful Victoria on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Victoria is an international tourist destination with lots of tourist sites and surrounded by sea and nature. Our cat "Pookie" recently passed away and now a bunch of different birds have decided to make our backyard their hangout.
