Its very tempting to ascribe human qualities and actions to your pets-and its a trap we all fall into.
I have 2 cats... Flea, the lithe hunter who regularly catches animals of any size and lovingly brings them into kitchen to show us and Pippi the rather plump princess who's never been seen to even stalk an animal, never mind catch and kill one but will happily eat anything Flea brings in.
So the scenario is Flea catches and kills, Pippi eats.
A coupla days ago very early in the morning, I'm sitting at the computer and Flea brings in a dead bird which he deposits on the floor close by. I sigh and decide carcass flinging can wait until I've finished reading my emails.
10 minutes later I'm up for the task but I can't find it, its disappeared. I check out the laundry, the rumpus room and finally get to where the cats' food bowls are and there placed artistically on Pippi's bowl is one very dead bird!
Gotta hand it to Flea..he's one very smart cat!
