She Digs It


I'm wondering what this feline of mine is digging for now. She's the ultimate hunter... out most of the day and all night.

For Mother's Day, she or her sister left a rat on the back steps and another critter yet undetermined. We think it was a baby groundhog. Recently, one of them brought a baby beaver to the house, and before that, a baby squirrel. The babies...they don't usually kill, but the moles, the mice and the lizards are living in dangerous territory in our backyard!

Here, she's digging in a tree stump. I just hope she never gets a snake!

I'm a cat guy but it took awhile looking at the picture to determine it was a cat. Interesting capture compared to some of the painting hanging in the Philadelphia Museum of Art post-impressionist.

Hi Walker, She is rather camouflaged, huh? I liked that her coloring is so much like her surroundings. Guess that is why she is such a successful predator.

She is quite the hunter!

Just discovered this site! I remember Selma well. And in 1964-65 I was a student at Judson College. I was REAL familiar with Selma back then. So was the whole country.

Cats are so funny! No telling what she will drag up next!

They must love you a lot to bring you nice gifts. We get a bird once in a while, nothing exciting.

Welcome to Selma via the web, Marian! Glad to have you join us.

The gifts are why our kitty remains INDOORS. I know that within that sweet lazy housecat lies the heart of a deadly predator. I can't take the carnage.
