Anatomy of a Kill

by Cat Crazy


Above you can see a cute striped toy mouse, somewhat in decline.  It’s formed from a compressed cardboard core around which colorful cording is wrapped.  Already, some of the cord has been unwrapped from the toy, along with its ears, eyes, and snout, which has been chewed completely off.   Interestingly, these toys never seem to go for a swim in the water bowl, but they do quickly get destroyed.  Below, you can see a fully unwrapped version of the same type of mouse with one lonely eye looking up.  Really glad the vegetarian is much larger than the obligate carnivores in this house.  Otherwise, you can see what my fate would be.
