Humphrey bought me a lovely present!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Well I have had a couple of birds, two frogs, some plastic lids, neighbours scourers, a bit of washing line, someone else's Tea Towel, and a mouse within his little life.

I dont mind the lids or non living stuff, but frogs!!!!!!

Today he bought me.............................. an empty carrier bag and a fly!!!

Oh he's a hunter alright

He sounds like such a cutie! Alley used to bring me mice, rabbits and chipmunks and she would always place them on the rug next to my bed. I learned very quickly to always look before I stepped out of bed!

Thought Humphrey was bringing in a variety of specimens, but chipmunks!!! eeek luckily we dont have those here, I would be too frightened.

Oh, I'm also extremely glad my babies are indoor cats! EWWW! I got grossed out just by hearing a story about a duck eating a fish. I'd imagine if Loki or Possum ever brought me any "presents" it'd be much like the Horse Head Scene in The Godfather!

I'd be more worried if Humphrey decided to start bringing home more personal items from the neighbors! Could you imagine trying to return a bra or something similar?

my cat tried to attack a pigeon once but i shooed the birds away before she had a chance to get them this happened again though and the pigeon wasn't so lucky it wasn't a pretty sight, shes now a indoor cat but she does like to glare at the squirrels that race across the garden, when she sits at the window, the good thing about the hunting though is that my cat kills the spiders or any other bugs that dares enters my home lol so it's not all bad.

My aunt had a cat that would bring her "presents" from the houseguests such as their jewelry, underwear...if only we could have trained her to open bank vaults and crack locks

I had a cat once who emptied my neighbour's pond of goldfish (not without falling in once!). That was embarrassing. He also came home once dragging an enormous pork chop. I never dared ask around about that!

Same here - especially given Sonic's habit of dropping his offerings on my face while I'm in bed - thank goodness the worst it could be is a toy that he's dunked in his water bowl. Can't imagine having an eviscerated frog dropped on my face first thing in the morning

I'd pay good money to see a picture of a cat with a giant (stolen) pork chop hanging out of its mouth.

When we lived in the UK - Pepsi once caught 2 sea-gulls a day after each other.
The 1st time I caught her she was dragging it through the cat-flap and the 2nd one she was plucking it on her bed

All she gets here is bunnies and most of the time I can rescue them off her

At least she wasn't plucking it on YOUR bed

I've lived in an area that gulls were a huge nuisance and where protected by law. They would sit on your cars and peck at the windshield demanding food because tourist would feed them, or worse dive at/attack you if you were outside. Your Pepsi's hunting would have been cheered on by many of the locals there.

My cat loves mice, rats, and fish. we used to live kinda out of town and now we have a big empty lot behind our house, and there is field mice there and she loved to hunt them. she would bring me presents and i'm sorry to say i handled it all wrong(some of them were still alive) and hurt her feelings and she doesn't bring them anymore. she has ate one of my brothers rats, he was an idiot and let them out and run around, plus he didn't have a top for the tank. i warned him but he didn't listen. She had kittens at the time and they were in the teaching-how-to-hunt stage, and i came home one day from school to walk into my room and find a head, tail, legs, and entrails lying in 3 piles all straightened out and neat on my floor.
another time one she ate my older brothers fish because he didn't have a proper lid, and i wasn't there to keep an eye on her. my mother has a huge tank of fish in the living room now and i still have to keep her from hitting the tank with both face and claws. the other cats don't really mess with it but she has eaten aquarium fish before(as you have previously read) so i have to keep an eye on her.
another time, my mother rescued 3 little kittens from our uncles(his kids would not leave them along so the feral mother left them) and she was fixed at the time so she didn't mother them(that was the dogs thing) but she took them under her wing when they got older. she decided to teach them one night, but they were still young so i had them inside during the night so when i called them it took a while for them to come. Stripes came round the house, then Teaser, then Mini, and then Had. the kittens came to the front door and milled around waiting for Had. she was about 5 feet from the door and she stumbled, or at least i thought. i had never seen her stumble before but she was fine and came into the house so i ignored it. she gets into the hall way and drops something. and the kittens go and nudge it around. i turned on a light and saw a little white baby mouse! after i froze in shock for a second Had went and picked it up and dropped it again. the kittens were watching wondering what was gonna happen. i went to go pick it up and IT MOVED! it was in some serious shock so it wasn't moving fast. i put a bowl over it and got a piece of paper under it so i could flip it. i think i walked outside with the cats following me, and i put it down. then i turned and walked back in the house. even if i had walked to the lot and put inside it, the cats still would have had it, and they looked like they were having so much fun so i just let them have it.
