Benji ~ it’s a cat’s life

This is Benji and today was a good day to be a cat.  First let me say I am a very good hunter.  (As good or better than my older brother who seems to be losing his touch.  I am not at all jealous.)

Usually I spend my time in the back ivy forest where the small ones live in the bush. It is productive most of the time as long as Sue is not around. (She is clumsy and disruptive. Tiger warned me of this.)

But today I discovered the tunnels where there is little cover, requiring that I utilize skills I did not know that I possessed.  I must exercise control over every muscle to remain completely still, unseen and unheard.

I am good and I am patient.

It is only a matter of time before Sue attempts to thwart my efforts.  Until then I will root out the tunnel scoundrels.

It’s a cat’s life.

    • They surely do love it and are so good at it. These little tunnel dwellers actually tear up our lawn so I don’t always try that hard to thwart these hunting expeditions. Still I have been known to rescue a few. 😉

      • I thought we’d think alike on that! The other day, Effie greeted me at the window with a finch in her mouth. The finch was quite dead. I think he rammed the window and broke his neck, and she took him up as a trophy. I’ve never actually seen her snatch a bird alive–but not for lack of trying! Yugh.

      • I love the birds and hate to see the boys stalking them. If only they were more discriminating in their hunting! Unfortunately they like anything that moves. I do what I can.
