I thought you might enjoy a replay of Hunt Week. My girl is still an excellent huntress!
housecat can tell that it can be challenging to find things to stalk
and hunt on "The Inside." Movement is critical for a truly satisfying
kill, so I hunt the only acceptable big game in the house - Let's call
her The Great White
Great White is delightful prey. Sure a tasty bite is always enjoyable,
whether it's during a petting session or an occasional nibble on the
calf if she takes too long to prepare my meal, but it's the hunt that's
the most fun.
I sit poised in the darkened hallway
bathroom, waiting to hear the lumbering steps of my prey. I spot my kill
as she walk by, tasty white cankles. I run in front of The Great White,
startling her and causing her to yelp in surprise. As she continues to
walk past me, I throw my front paws around the cankles and hold on tight
to try to slow down her progress. A hard bite isn't likely to bring her
down, and it's been known to end the game right where it begins, so I
resist the urge.
Will she be able to break the hold of
my paws of doom? Yes - she breaks free and scurries to the bedroom
doorway. The Great White turns to face her furry opponent. I reach up to
my full height on my back paws as I hug the doorframe with my front
paws. I slide, menacingly, down the doorframe to a pounce position.
"You think you can take me, little cat?" The Great White asks in a mocking tone.
"Mew!" I answer with confidence.
"Let's do this." She says as she darts and weaves toward me her hands waving about.
make an unexpected break for it, and run through Dad's office. I hear
her chuckle as she thinks I've run in defeat, but she has forgotten that
the office feeds into the living room and then back to the same hallway
which now lays behind her. She is still taunting me, as she waits for a
frontal attack, when I leap onto the calf from behind. I flip onto the
floor and twist to give some light bunny kicks to the leg.
got me!" The Great White squeals in horror. She reaches down and
defends herself the only way she can now, a hearty neck scritch. All is
forgiven in the happy hunting ground.
If you wanna play just post about hunting anything you like at your place this week. Happy Hunting Friends!
