Sharing Means Caring

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 11:10

Marisa was peering in the front door window when I came downstairs this morning, eager to get my attention after having been very, very busy during the night.  I know better than to let Marisa in the house before she clears customs, so I checked out the porch through the window.  She had decapitated and disemboweled a bird for me–very thoughtful.   I have been prompt in filling her food bowls over the last couple weeks, even by my standards.  But when I looked more closely, I realized that the new practice of emptying the litter box every other day has also been well-received, because I got a mole, too!

The mole is to the left.  Marisa put so much into the presentation of the bird that the rodent garnish looks almost like an afterthought.  I was expecting to plan out our meals and go to the grocery store this weekend, but if I just pat Marisa for five minutes or so she’ll probably set us up for the rest of the week.



  1. Wow, that’s a real presentation.

  2. This is the biggest reason I want a house with a fenced-in yard. I know that my cats like me enough to bring dead things around and present them, and that is so insane an event that I just have to experience it. Cats are the best. They live in a secret world that no one else can access.

  3. Am I allowed to post here?

    This picture is incredible! Marissa is my hero as I hate all birds. Way to go, cat!

    • You are welcome to post, and I will pass on your congratulations to Marisa. Maybe she’ll save you a wing.

  4. I think she put some real love into that. The presentation. Not so much the killing.
