animal photography with sx30

I noticed that when I zoom in on birds they fly away before the autofocus can focus. Further my cat starts "complaining" the second I turn on the camera and is obviously bothered by the camera being on. It is the same for the sx5 and xs10, both of which I own. Has anybody noticed this and is there a work arround?

Ok, my birds hate the focus assist light, but other than that they only get anxious, when I come to close with any cam.

My sweetheart was able to film me playing with the birds without them being worried, because she stood away 3 meters.

So your experience astonishes me.
