Honoured

We feel honoured. One of the cats has taken to leaving us little rodent presents. He’s always been a hunter, but he’s now taken to leaving them in the porch, just the other side of the cat-flap.

The weird thing is, they’re left with a garnish, a few leaves or a bit of grass. I mean, we know he leaves the rodents for us, but does he see the vegetables we eat for supper and think “they’re a funny lot, these humans, eating this green stuff”? Does anyone else find this? Our’s can leave us anything from maybe two or three rodents per day, to a rodent every two or three days, and maybe 50% of the time, they come with garnish, so I don’t think it’s accidental.

One thought on “Honoured”

  1. I think I understand this now. The leaves just happen to be in the way when he strikes. He rips them off, and just delivers the whole mouthful, including leaves and rodent, to us. But wouldn’t it have been funny if he did go back and get our green portion separately?
