Cat & Mouse
Chantilly finally catches her mouse (or perhaps it is a vole?). A very proud moment for our household. While I gardened, her vigil was almost constant -- to the point of obsession. For the past year or so, she has spent several hours practically every day staring at the hole under my bird feeder. Her hard work has paid off and pictured here is the prize. My sympathies to the victim's family, but I did lavish praise on kitty and gave her extra treats for this crowning achievement. Now the neighborhood rodents are on notice -- you mess with the cat, you get the claws.
