Squirrel!!!!

[Editor: Hadley’s chances of catching Godot are a good deal higher than catching a ‘tree rat’.]

I suspect he wouldn’t know what to do if he did accidentally manage to catch one. Kinda like dogs that chase cars. Okay, he caught the car, now what?

He didn’t pay a lot of attention when his mum showed him what to do as she was catching and eating squirrels as part of the weaning process. Hadley discovered kibble early and never turned back.

The squirrel he went after lives in that tree, a huge live oak, and has a history of annoying cats.

go, Hadley, go!

The squirrel he went after lives in that tree, a huge live oak, and has a history of annoying cats.

at our house, the squirrels annoy all the cats in the north and east windows and the wrens (or are they sparrows?) taunt all the cats in the south and west windows.

some of mine don’t even recognized canned cat food as food, let alone small wildlife.

I see that all the black cats in your Halloween header have their eyes closed. 😈

They are probably Carolina wrens who are stockier than sparrows.

Hadley won’t even eat wet kibble. The dry is better for his teeth, but I would have expected him to at least try something else.

I’ll see what I can do about a “black cat”.

When we lived in an apartment with a balcony, the squirrels would come up to the screen to beg for peanuts. They all seemed quite chummy with Kaylee and Koshka, stopping by to nosh birdseed and have a chat with the cats.

These days, the girls have become proficient mouse catchers taking a tag-team approach. There never seem to be any leftovers, fortunately.

Females are generally better hunters than toms, who tend to be scavengers, just like their large cousins, lions. Too bad they don’t leave you ‘presents’ to step on in the middle of the night. 🙂

You are getting into your local traffic jam, the Presidential campaign season, Anya. They just ignore the fact that the Florida Panhandle exists. Good luck with that. 😉

No mouse carcasses at any rate, but Kaylee seems to be quite the hairball factory.

Yuck, I’d take mice over hairballs any time. 🙁

I’d take mice over hairballs any time.

I think I’ve got both at my house – the cats are putting on their winter coats and the mice have moved inside to keep from floating away.

My reference was to stepping on things at night in bare feet. Yes, my remaining duo are getting extremely fluffy, and I spend time brushing them when they’ll permit it.
