Don't you love it when the cat makes that "Special Sound" and you know that he has brought you a special gift?

Almost as fun as when you find the remains of a gift they just couldn't resist eating themselves. Was a pile of guts on the walkway a couple days ago. Just didn't want to really focus on it. But I am pretty sure it was mouse remains.

Cute picture!!!

I understood the sound and grabbed my camera. "Watermelon" dropped the lizard at my feet. I helped him escape unharmed.

My Truffles once came to the door with an awful bloody cardinal in her mouth. She was ready to bring it in and share but I declined.

Horsie used to bring me gifts a lot...he was quite the hunter..he brought home a jack rabbit once, that was as big as he was...I have no idea how he caught such a thing!
Corky hasn't brought me anything..he didn't have his mother long enough to teach him how to hunt, and I am not doing it!

I think that might be a myth about needing a mother to teach them to hunt. I was told our Truffles and Pixel lost their mother at 2-3wks and they are remarkable hunters. Maybe someone else here could comment.

Maybe it is partly true...and it is more up to the individual cat, than due to the teachings of their mother...from what I have noticed in all the cats I have had, the ones that spent time with their mothers, were all good hunters. Horsies mother, Fuzz taught all of her kittens how to hunt mice and other things...

What a good Girl! Serving you a Salad too.

My cats are all good hunters. In her younger days my old girl "Pins" would jump in the air and catch a bird. She does good to jump on the bed now. It was her son that brought the Gift Lizard

Isis is our Huntress. It's usually grasshoppers and katydids, tho. Not posting pics of THOSE remains. These was a dragonfly once. I don't know how she managed that one.
