Hunt Week - Seeing Red

From across the room I spot my prey. Like the red of the matador's cape the color of my prey mocks me and demands my attention. My prey is cunning, as it's heavily guarded by The Great White.

A full frontal assault will only get me banished to the other room. I must finesse this situation. I make sweet kitty face at The Great White. She falls for it and begs me to sit on her lap. I act casual-like, as if I am only mildly interested. She pleads - yes, I have her.

I leap onto her lap and allow her to pet me, lulling her into a state of false security. After a few minutes I stretch innocently and slowly make steps toward my prey. Oh no, she sees me, and moves my prey just out of reach. I settle in for more lap time and act as if I didn't notice the movement. A few minutes more of petting and purring, and I move with lightening speed. She didn't see it coming this time. I reach my prey and dive in.


Victory! Bonus, it's milk!

Note: I'm willing to share, but she says my cat spit ruins her drink. Whatever, more for me.

Fin with so much finesse!! Stalk your prey, til the moment is right! Just like the LadyQueenCat should--rules with mighty whisker!!

Rufus said...

Milk? Yum! Tell your mom, cat spit adds extra flavor!

The Island Cats said...

Yay Fin!! The Great White doesn't know what she is missing...

The Monkeys said...

The Great White reference is so funny! I love it!

Fin, Samson took off with the phane from the hummus container. I think he's keeping it for you.

Good for you! My mom has even tried to give me milk, but I turn up my nose at it and walk away.

Ashton is my kitty who loves margarine, butter & whip cream.

My dog actually is the one who loves milk ...

Cory said...

Nice work! When I do that it's usually only water. I take it anyway. Jonesie will be hunting on Thursday!!!

Ha! Ha! Cat spit! My mom thinks that is so funny!

Glogirly and Katie said...

Fin, you have totally got this hunt thing down. I'm thinking there's a future for you in the career of indoor hunt coaching. I know I could use some pointers. Glogirly I can take, any day of the week. But Gloman, he's so cunning, so observant. I really have to watch myself. I feel I need a few more tricks.

mew!

Ha! That's a good one Fin! You're definately a pro at indoor hunting. We need to study up on your finer points.

Forever Foster said...

We are well impressed!

Huffle Mawson said...

You should write a book Fin.

Oh wait, you did that already?

Jasmim said...

good job !

You are so lucky our Mom says cat spit never hurt anybody and drinks it anyway, meaning less for us. We thinks she may have the same unhealthy attitude about dog slobber but have been unable to verify as Fenris doesn't bother her foods and drinks. She says he is a good doggie unlike us bad kitties. ~S,S & F

CCL Wendy said...

Well done, Fin! You are a champion of the hunt, and a very clever girl at outwitting your opponent (the Great White, that is)!

I know what the GW means though, by ruining her drink with cat spit. This happens to me every day with my glass of water that I keep by the computer -- even though I also keep one for kitties -- they still prefer mine.

By the way, Dante has a Hunt Week post today.

Brian said...

Another successful hunt, you done good Fin!!!

Fin, you are truly a Mighty Hunter. You excel in outwitting the GW.
We have continued the hunt theme for our Friday Flashback this week.

♥Da fambly kitties♥ said...

Fin, we just looked at our bloggy and can see the arrow that you click on to make the movie work. You can't see it?

We don't hunt but we sure are having fun reading about all of the other kitties who scored big when hunting☺

You've got a very advanced technique, Fin!
