you all may get a kick out of this one. i didn't at the time. my smallest ig flicka is the "baby" and the diva par none. she is wayyyyy past spoiled.
well, my cat likes to catch live things, ie lizards, birds, moles, snakes(these he usually has dead thank heavens) , and chipmunks. he also likes to bring them into the house where i have to catch them and get them back outside. i suppose that is his entertainment...watching me catch things. lol
chipmunks are the fastest little critters i have to go after and rescue and really hard to catch too. the last time my cat brought in a chipmunk i had managed to corner it in the bathroom behind the trash can and after shutting off all the escape routes .... i had a towel ready to throw over it and thus pick it up without getting bit and take outside. well, that was the plan anyway.
flicka, my ever present velcro baby, was with me and i never thought about the nature of the dog and instinct etc. as the little chipmunk started to dart out and between my feet and before i could throw the towel over him, my little innocent diva flicka snatched that chipmunk up and snapped it back in forth in a flash and killed it. i was like "oh my god no."
she was so proud of herself and i was left to pick up this poor lifeless little "prize". it is hard to watch your "baby" regress into their natural state and "kill."
