The image of a cute cat swallowing mice almost whole would be fun to watch unless you happen to like mice
I remember years ago our neighbours black cat was into catching birds. One day in the summer that cat was in our backyard sitting on the ground with a birds head protruding from his mouth. I said " you let that bird go" and the cat slowly opened his mouth and the bird to my amazement flew out. I like to think I did something good there.
Yeah, she caught a lot of mice from the neighborhood, I was shocked how many mice there were, cause normally, you see none. They must hide well.
Tiger went after pigeons too. I never really saw it, but my neighbor saw her kill 3 pigeons, which is pretty impressive cause pigeons are pretty big. But yeah, never was a cat person, but being the main owner of Tiger for 1 1/2 years made me start liking cats, there were about 3 partime girl owners, who helped feed, sometimes let Tiger into their place; but there were a lot of enemies around too like dogs, some people that hated cats, cars, and she was crazy, she would jump on places like roofs, fences, etc with no caution.
So, alas, she is gone, one more last picture, I always laughed when she was on my bed and she would sleep on her back with her paws up. Kinda funny looking postion.
Nowadays, I go to a neighbors house to play with 2 housecats and 2 stray cats that hang out there. Maybe I'll take a picture. I named them Alley Cat, Mama Cat, Two Tone, and Baby Mama Cat. Alley cat (a orange cat) has really taken a liking to me, and acts like a dog, always rolling over and wants me to pet his stomach, I'll try to post a picture of those cats later cause they are kind of like part-time pets. So it is cool.
