Sad/funny pet story #1: Being across the yard and spotting the cat entering the house

bearing a limp rodent.

Even sadder story: Going inside, seeing the cat, but seeing no sign of the rodent.

1. Oh Geeze...

Good luck hunting.
Especially if the aforementioned rodent was just stunned...

2. Yeah- that's happened more than once -

I had to chase and catch a rabbit one time! Catching birds is even more fun!

3. Good luck!

It is still better than finding random parts.

4. Oh No! (That's what I used to say)

I tread carefully, because I never know when I'll step on a rodent gall bladder or the tip of a snake tail. My cats eat what they catch, though, so it's not a continual parade of sporting trophies, and one of my cats has learned to kill very quickly, and has no liking for drawing things out. Unlike the other cat, who is a sociopath with no empathy. I cringe when he brings something home, but if the first cat is there, he'll step in and make sure it's killed quickly. Their preference now is for rodents, which is gross, but better for the environment.

5. not sure how I did it

but both house cats bring their catches to the bathtub

kind of gross sometimes but easier to clean than rugs, and the almost never get away to die and stink from some mysterious location
