Contrary to popular opinion, I Do Not sleep all the time and miss all the "excitement" of George catching and consumption.
I Scorn this opinion.
I am aware At All Times what's happening on the Catio.
I just like to set my predatory sights a tad higher.
Meet George's cousin, Joe.
Joe is a Rattlesnake!
I chewed off the tip of Joe's tail.
There was a big ruckus on the Catio over the rights to Joe after I captured him.
Daddy came outside to investigate...
...and he hot-footed it right back inside to get Mommy, and a pair of shoes!
Mommy tweezed up Joe with a pair of kitchen tongs and put him in a box, and then she and Daddy took Joe across the street and gave him a new home out (way out!) in the Desert.
I was Not Pleased.
I hope My Girl Annie is impressed by my hunting prowess...I think it's only fitting that I caught a venomous viper as a present for Her.
Seeing how we are both pretty dangerous, too!
Note from Mommy: This is the second snake the Cats have caught (that we know of) in the nine years at our house. Hubby and I did a paw/nose check on everyone afterwards. How they manage to stay unbitten is beyond me. The same for the scopions...they pull the stinger off! I sure wish they'd stick to murdering George.
