Nightmare on Elm Street

We have a killer in our midst. With talons of steel and a nose like a bloodhound, this tenacious, vicious stalker is another Jack The Ripper who only hunts at night and always brings home the prey. Every morning we find the evidence. A few feathers here, some innards there. Sometimes we find some baby bunny feet, and sometimes a mouse or mole head. Sometimes the prey is alive and then we have to deal with chasing it around the house so we can put it outside. It's all rather revolting. Freddie Krueger doesn't have a thing on this killer.

Who is this terror of the neighborhood?

Why, it's none other than sweet and innocent-looking Tiger Lily.

Here she is getting some loving from Polly-I, her foster mother.

Tiger Lily has some final words for all you trusting pet owners. She says, "If you value your loved ones, KEEP THEM INSIDE, otherwise they will be my morning meal. Muahahaha."

Well said but she is only a cat and a great mouser.

What's this "only a cat?" LOL Our cat is part of our family. Of course, he's such a big baby that he doesn't venture out after dark very much. He's certainly not much of a hunter!
Your cats are so pretty. I wish I could get Vincent to sit still for a good brushing more often!!

Our indoor cats don't go out, so we don't need to worry about prey inside the house. Our outside cat, however, likes to leave us 'gifts'. Little bloody animal parts strategically placed where we'll be sure to see them, and possibly step on them!

Hehehe--word identification is "poosm"... the cats have never caught one of THOSE!

Tiger Lily is beautiful. My poor little cat even kills toy mice. Ripping their heads off and bringing me the bodies like he has done a great deed. He doesn't get outside so I guess he has found an alternative way to satisfy that instinct.

Little One really likes these pictures of Tiger Lily. She is the daughter of the sweet kitty we had to bury this week. Both long, lean, white bird killing machines. She certainly brought Tiger Lily up to be a productive member of the cat family.

Not that sweet face!!! Miss Bev is the same. (The big strapping Dave won't hurt a flea!) We have found a bunny lucky foot on the front porch (later found the body which was bigger than she was!). Ew. I used to have two brothers (Fred & Dan) who were so dumb, they would bring months' old road kill to the porch. Ewww. They could never catch anything, so I guess the next best thing for a present, flattend squirrel pancakes. (I have to keep Bev in all spring so she won't eat the birds nesting about!)

You are such a soft touch for cats. I always remember you bringing home any stray kitty. I think there is a secret sign on your house recognized by stray cats looking for a good home.

She's a beauty! Yes, we get our fair share of those unwanted presents :) Your Polly is pretty too. I love the way cats show so much affection to each other (unless they're feeling crochety). Our matriarch, Chloe, sometimes slaps the kittens and bigger cats, and sometimes gives them lots of affection, depending on her mood :)
