Beware of Kitty Gifts

by walksoftly

IMG_2216_cThe wimpy human long ago learned not to just bend down and pick up odd things she finds on the floor. Much better idea to crouch down first and examine it with the eyes rather than the fingers.  That proved good advice this week when she saw an odd lump on a rug in the living room.  She lowered herself and took a look. What she saw would had made a great prop for a Halloween haunting. It was the head and neck of a deceased mouse (not a toy).  The eyes were bulging and the mouth open in a grimace.  (Aren’t you glad she didn’t shoot a picture?)  The rest of the body has not been found and likely was a snack for one of the meows. The human should be honored that the last yummy part was saved for her and left outside her office door where toy mice are often presented.  Ah, such is the life of a vegetarian living with carnivores.
