Gifts from Brisket

I wish my cat had the uncanny ability to bring me winning scratch tickets and Pringles.

Instead, Brisket, the more aggressive of the #meatcats, seems to have a sixth sense for finding and scavenging small mammal graveyards. He is also an excellent, stealthy and non-stop hunter. Just this week Brisket brought home:
1. Bunny rabbit, dead, and missing only one foot
2. One distraught duck, who was quacking non-stop because she was missing her chicks and upset about being chased around by a tiny grey cat
3. A live garter snake, which was ferried up the stairs and down the stairs, over and over again
4. The most raggedy and tiniest dead mouse I've ever seen.

This complements the 1 dead squirrel, two squirrel tails, and myriad moles and mice he has brought home over the course of his short kitty life.

Thank you Brisket, for sharing your gifts with me and BMG.

Make that two mice dragged home today. The second one, on the front porch is HUGE, considerably less mangled than the tiny raggedy mouse on the back porch, and wounded, but still alive. Jeff is giving it mouth to mouth right now in hopes we can set it free.

Three weeks after this post was published Brisket was dead, killed by a neighbor's car. My heart is still breaking for my little buddy, gone after only two years on this planet. I am trying to remember that he died doing what he loved best - playing, hunting, running and sleeping outdoors.
