Look What I Caught Ma !


Yesterday evening hubby and I heard a lowish howl. We looked at each other a bit puzzled and heard it again. It had to be the cat, but this was a new noise from her. Hubby got up and went to the french doors to see what was up. Our home has an upper deck off the dining room where stalker kitty first showed up as a stray 3 years ago this spring. She has discovered by jumping up off the top of the grill she can do a pull up onto the deck and have access to the family. (she also has a small house we set up for her there so she can escape from animals or the rain when we are not home)

Eww gross! Hubby says from the back door. She caught a bird! This is another first for kitty. She sat there proudly displaying the finch she caught in her mouth howling low, looking for praise. She dropped it and attacked a few feathers, then started playing hacky sack with it, patting it into the air and tossing happily. It was raining and got a little wet and heavy soon enough. It lost it's newness and fun fairly quickly once she had an audience. So with a full beard of feathers she asked to come inside, standing to window surf. She's a cat, you can't scold her, lol. (so what if she thinks she's a matrix kitty!)

My cat used to leave us bird heads. Right outside the front door.

Careful where you step!

May would be SO PROUD if she caught a bird. I think. She and Chaos caught a mouse and were mostly just confused.

I had a cat, years ago, just a small adult female, who took it upon herself to keep the barn free from vermin. She'd come to the house with a mouthful of whatever, then stand under our bedroom window and cry that odd, low-pitched howl until someone congratulated her. Once it was a pigeon that was bigger than she was. After she was praised, she'd lug her treasure somewhere else.

Betty's cat caught two baby bunnies last week. Left one headless on the front porch.

My cats are now catching and eating geckos. Ick ick ick!

Thank you for your comment on my blog.
Unfortunately, the model isn't me, sigh...
Now, onto more important matters - just exactly how big are your boobs? ;o)

Definitely a reason for having a dog... I mean, they hunt, too, but not quite the same way!

I have a cat door, so they bring things in all the time. I do body counts first thing in the morning. EWWWW! I used to have a cat the color of yours. The vet called her a pastel calico. I had never heard of that before her, so I notice all kitties of that coloring now.

I often think that cat have the best supernatural abilities. Our cat we think is a double agent. She is a mysterious creature for sure, lol.
