I’m standing on the deck enjoying the sun
you stalk up on to the deck with a gift in your mouth
with a look of triumph on your little face.
You walk up to me and gently lay your gift to me at my feet
you meow your hello thinking you have conquered your prey.
little do you know you have not won quite yet.
your prey jumps in the air and lets out a furious little squeal
his little feet hit the deck and he bolts for freedom.
You hiss in surprise and pursue your gift!
He runs to safety behind a chair, desperately searching for a way out!
You are close behind him, I run for the door to shut it before your prey runs into the house.
He side winds you and makes his great escape.
You crouch and leap missing your prey
You have caught and released a cute little gift.
The good little hunter that you are
( hours later and Jake is still so choked that his gift alluded him.. He’s once again out searching for his prey that escaped. He’s choked enough that he keeps glaring and won’t allow anyone to touch him but for a brief moment… i wonder if he will come home with another sweet gift… hopefully not Houdini this time lmao)
