More Hunting at the Farm
Posted by F&S
The other day, we, Frenchies, blogged about how Princess Peony was trying to attack the canaries. Well, shortly after shooting those photos, we went outside and found her sister, Empress Tang, involved in a bona fide bird attack! Even though we hunt squirrels and the like, ourselves, we couldn’t help but feel sorry for the little sparrow.
1 Hey, what are you looking at?
2 Don't act so horrified! Bird hunting is instinctual for cats, you see, and there's nothing I can do about it!
3 I am a huntress, bottom line, and this is what I was born to do!
4 When all is said and done, this little sparrow will be a tasty little morsel.
6 Being served food is fine, but hunting is so much more fun!
7 Cats are the perfect hunters and that's one big reason why humans love us. We're very efficient at catching mice, rats, and other varmints. Birds just come with the territory.
8 Empress Tang! You're horrible! That was our fledgling! He didn't have a chance!
9 Some hunter! That's what we, birds, call easy prey. You know, you better watch your back. You're not exactly at the top of the food chain around here!
10 That's right! Let's see how you feel when a hungry coyote starts swatting at you!
11 Oh, quit your yammering! Can't a cat eat in peace?
