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!)
