Mindy the Huntress

While the mancats around here were mooching for extra treats, I, was busy elsewhere.  Specifically, in the place where our beans keep the birdseed. 

My stealth and hunting skills were rewarded with my capture of this trophy!  Okay,  okay I admit it was a small mousie, but it still counts!  I had to use my training and I was glad I practiced a lot with the toy mousies.  I am proud to join the ranks of the mighty feline hunters!

Oops, I almost forgot Mombean wanted to show you all the photo of the fireworks she took outside on our street.  Our neighbours were celebrating Canada Day last evening. 

Those fireworks are really loud, and frankly, I don't see the fascination with them.  I am hoping for another mouse to catch instead.

Our mombean saw the small black kitty again this morning.  It was sitting on one of the big granite rocks in our yard.  She got a small dish of dry cat food to take out in case it was starving, but it fled as soon as it saw her.   The dish is out on the rock, but our bean says the bluejays will probably eat the food instead.

Moe and I were both born feral, but we are ever so glad we are loved and are so thankful to have a home of our own.

Love, Mindy

Concatulations on the great catch, Mindy! We had fireworks in my little neighborhood park tonight and do you know, my human ran off with her camera and tripod to take photos! That is some kind of crazy. She should have been in the house with us!

That mousie look like just the right size for a snack! Perhaps you should have saved it for the small black kitten. We must admit we are a bit scared of fireworks.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

EXTRA points for the little mousies, they are harder to nab! You GO, gurl.

You are a great hunter, Mindy. A mouse is a mouse - no matter how big or small it is.
Nice photo of the firework. I probably would prefer a good meal too. Don't like the noise.
I hope the kitty you saw outside will find the dish with the food.
greetings from Christiane and purrs from her furry friends

That is some very impressive hunting Mindy!

ABBY said...

That is a fabulous capture and you have a very intent look on your face. I can see the pride you have that is a fine catch.
we know what you mean about fireworks.We have a neighbor that shoots them off (even though they are illegal) and it scares us. Mom doesn't know why someone would be so into it like this neighbor is.

Wow, Mindy! We're impressed with you hunting skills!

Fireworks are pretty, but they're so loud! We don't like them much. The humans around here have been shooting them off the last few days. Fortunately, it's been real hot and the cold air blower is on so all our windows are closed and we can't hear them much.

Thank you so much for your kind words about our sweet Chevelle.
