Since moving here, my cats are in heaven ravaging the rodent population. There are so many more than there were back in Sarajevo. They are killing two or three mice, voles, shrews, moles and even rats every day. Luckily they only get an occasional bird but sadly do catch beautiful large green dragonflies. But Persil is behaving oddly. While the others play with their kill and occasionally eat it if I can't get it away in time, she brings everything home to me! It has happened several times. Yesterday she came in with a mouse, gave it to me, and when I took it out again she brought it back and left it at my feet. Today, I heard meowing while I was in my bath and she was down on the step with a young rat. I did not go down (wrapped in my towel!) and later I looked out to see that she had left it on the door step. She has never done this before. What could be in her mind suddenly that I need mice?
