Scout's accomplishment

Scout caught and ate a rabbit today.

We gather she feels good about herself right now. However, we don't feel the same about it.

I don't know. Perhaps she'll write about it later.

That is good. Yea!

Smokey is impressed. The best he's ever done is catch flies in flight.

Baillie and Cisco don't know if they've ever seen a rabbit but know they'd like to catch one of those squirrels! Good job, Scout!

My cats Cally and Lucy are applauding with awe over here.

Hope it wasn't cute little Thumper!

That is a significant achievement! We are duly impressed.

I am not sure what to say!

I think it is good however... For Scout!

Well, yes, good for Scout, but perhaps traumatic for you. I know when The Boy swallows a baby rabbit in just a gulp or two, I don't feel very good about it! But it happens nonetheless. They are, after all, hunter-types.

Sorry to be off topic, but I'm looking for the June book to read and I can't find it. Could you email me at rebekahroxanna@yahoo.com? Thanks.

One of those times when you are reminded that yeah...she's a DOG.

Amie would be so envious.

You make me laugh. Hey, I'm coming out to your neck of the woods in August for a friend's wedding. Hmm...may have to have a meet up!

Chorus said...

Mama Cat and Baby Cat echo all expressions of congratulations and respect. "Hurray for Scout!" is the general cry.

(I'm with you though.)

Mr. Woody K. Nibs has killed two rabbits. He left one on my front porch, headless no less, on Easter Sunday and the second one he brought to the back porch. It was still alive when I found him with it but too late to save it. Those kills are just part of his menagerie.

Ginger has no kills, and finds Woody's antics barbaric... what's wrong with just barking and getting mom's attention that way? I kind of feel the same way but Woody says cats can't bark so he has to do something else.

I'm watching Woody out the window as he's spying on a young squirrel right now :::sigh:::

Ugh. Isabel has caught nothing yet.

I had an Akita who used to kill things---she got a squirrel once and a cat. :( The worst was a skunk, but somehow, she didn't get sprayed. She was big, too, so it surprised me that she could manage to catch them.

Diane said...

I know. We feel kind of ugh about it, especially my husband, who witnessed the whole thing, and actually heard the rabbit scream.

Diane said...

Not that I'm sentimental about rabbits or anything, but still... and especially the eating part. yuck

Hi, I read your comment to my friend Dorothy's blog, urbanservant, and wanted to thank you. Dorothy and I have been friends since we were three, and I have witnessed her calm, logical, and extremely caring approach to everything in her life; first as the older sister of two adopted siblings, and then as the mother of her nine incredible children.
Incidentially, my cousin is a Lutheran pastor in the Minneapolis area. I am not sure, but I think she is doing pastoral care now at a hospital? Like your blog, check out mine sometime; we live in Alaska, and dog stories abound up here! www.elituqakbrady.blogspot.com

Good for Scout. Not good for the rabbit. The law of the jungle in operation.

People do worse things.

My bird dog, Ruby, almost caught a bird in our backyard...yup...ran after a low flying bird chomping her mouth trying to catch it....probably would have if I hadn't been out there yelling at her and slowing her down just by a breath. In that breath she thought about it and then refused to obey...the bird escaped (or died from fear under the rose bush, not sure which)
