Our Cat is Quite a Hunter

It's true. Our cat is too good of a hunter. Sure, if he lived in the wild, fending for himself, hunting and gathering for survival, this tendency would be a good thing. But our little guy is completely domesticated, pampered, well-fed and comfortable. I meet all of his needs.

Still, instincts are hardwired. The cat loves to hunt.

Hunting alone is not enough. This cat brings trophies home to gloat. He puffs out his chest and parades around the porch with a lizard or a frog or a mole dangling out of his little mouth. Most of the time I can entice him to let the victim go free. Almost 100% of the time the prey is still alive and is able to scurry to safety.

Today's episode varied from the original dance. It began as normal, with him meowing loudly at the storm door; making a racket to get my attention so I acknowledge his super skills. As always, I went to the door to help the innocent victim.

It was a snake.

I cracked the front door to squeeze onto the porch and persuade the cat to let the snake go. He shot into the house as fast as lightening, snake firmly clasped in his jaws.

The snake was in my house.

I tried to chase the cat (with snake) back out the door. No way. The cat was having a blast. He dropped the snake and started batting it across our hardwood floors.

That snake was traveling. He was slinking and sliming all over the place. It was the cat's high water moment, he was loving life.

I was freaked, the snake was wriggling and the cat was puffed up in all his glory.

All good things must come to an end. The cat batted the snake towards a window. Without much thought I opened the window, grabbed the snake and flung him to safety.

Today I was a snake handler, a snake wrangler. Hear ME roar.

This reminded me of a story when my grandmother had a snake in her basement. She is extremely phobic and called my uncles out of school to get the snake out as she stood outside because she couldn't stand to be inside with the little garden snake....too funny!

LOL... I love this one! I think if our cat could get outdoors that she would bring us stuff like snakes, frogs, whatever... I say this because our Lil Lulu took her orange and yellow toy mouse to my husband and dropped the mouse at his feet. And the silly little cat was proud. hahahaha Better a toy than that snake. Yikes!

Oh my gosh, this made me laugh! But I wouldn't have been laughing if the snake was in my house, I admit. I can just imagine your cat in all his glory LOL LOL. I bet he was mad at you for throwing his prize out the window. :D

Langley,
I've been away so just got to this. I love, love, love it. Your writing is SO visual! I have a perfect picture of your furry friend having the time of his life. Wonderful narrative capped off by a terrific ending. I'll be reading your work more to get inspiration and for examples of brilliant writing. Bravo!
