AYLA: Well, I know I said previously that "food in the bowl is worth 2 mousies in the weeds", but sometimes you catch one too! And TBT even SAW ME catch it, so that was really good. I ran right up on the deck to give it to him. I usually play with them until they get all tired, but I just dropped this one at his feet so HE could play. It was still very energetic.
He did "OK". He uses his back feet. He kept shoving it back toward me. Well, Ive seen Beins play a game on TV where they only use their feet, so maybe thats more normal for them.
It even jumped off the deck, but he went down and found it and chased it around on the ground (I had fun watching). But he DID catch it and bring it back up. Those long arms seem pretty useful (and oddly quick). And sometimes I think Beins are better at seeing things that dont move.
Well, I got it for HIM, so I just watched.
Well, I did MY part for the day...
Outstanding effort, Ayla and I'm sure that TBT appreciated it.ReplyDelete
Good job, Ayla! That sort of thing is SO beyond me.ReplyDelete
Well done Ayla! TBT was obviously very impressed with your skills and for bringing the gift to him.ReplyDelete
Flynn would have given it to Eric who would have scoffed it down quickly before anyone could take it away from him.
Wow, Ayla! You still got it, girl!ReplyDelete
With groceries being hard to get you sure done good bringing home the food!ReplyDelete
Bravo ! Very well done there. Shame you were not allowed to eat it, but maybe after it had been pawed and mauled so much it had lost nutritional value.ReplyDelete
There is supposed to be a meat shortage so you may have to catch dinner for your Dad more often :)ReplyDelete
You are a great provider of provisions, Ayla.ReplyDelete
Sorry TBT didn't really know exactly what to do with it...and was that a vole??
Yeah, and when they are deaded they are just no fun anymore...
Good catch you guys.ReplyDelete
You are, indeed, a mighty huntress, Ayla. You can always be relied on to bring home the bacon - er, the mousie (lol).ReplyDelete
Very nice catch. When we get one Dad knows as there is a train of cats going around the house with one or the other holding the hostage. We feel the same once they stop moving. Its like, MEH. No fun anymore lets napReplyDelete
Good job, Ayla, very nice catch ! PurrsReplyDelete
