My Crazy Cat

My cat came in the house this morning with a new plaything. It was a giant sewer roach which; immediately upon entering the house; Marmalade let it go! She then began telling me all about her treasure. Meanwhile, the roach is scurrying about the kitchen looking for a secure place to hide. Marms soon realizes she lost her toy and frantically begins meowing (in her really, really loud voice) and searching all around. As far as I know, the critter is still on the loose! I will be carrying a big stick and opening all the cupboards when I get home tonight. Why, oh why doesn’t Marmalade catch birds like normal cats?!

    So has the little critter set up housekeeping? He sure knows how to encroach on people! The nerve!!

    Hey, great blogspot! I too am disappointed you didn't keep Rusty. It sounds like he was a purrfect cat!

    I might take your advice and start a blogspot, but if I get "blogged down", I might have to call you for help.

    All hail Marmalade, the mighty hunter! You go girl!

    Neil does the same thing - he will bring in any live critter to play with, including birds, roaches, lizards, etc. He also lets them go in the house. So, rest assured, Marmalade is normal. At least in that respect :-)
