I need to add here, that Miss Kitty is GAME, even a bully to the other cats in the neighborhood, whether she is armed or not. She's spayed, but it really IS the size of the fight in the cat, not the size of the cat in the fight. She swaggers around and kicks butt.
Last night I walked up behind Miss Kitty on the darkened sidewalk and snatched her up for a little head scrubbing. She usually grunts and starts purring but instead she made a wheezing sound. I scrubbed her a little but she didn't relax. I put her down in the light. Turned out she had another mouse in her mouth!
Both missing this morning. The nightly Raccoon patrol probably vacuumed them up.
Update: Flying Squirrel dead today.
