Snowflake brings NUMEROUS 'toys' in nightly
, so there's never a dull moment around here.... Most often it's tree frogs or a mouse, other times rats or baby rabbits.
He doesn't kill 'em either (at least not intentionally), just brings them to his mum (me) and wants to 'play' with them.
(And I, too, set 'em free and/or rehab 'em.)
Altho, with birds it's different. With those, I might first see a few tufts of under-feathers floating around outside and follow the trail 'til I find a mass of feathers somewhere in the yard. There's never any bird remains. I think he takes particular glee in eating the ones that dive-bomb him.
The only diversion was one time when he brought an owl inside! We found it setting up on the ceiling fan and had one HECK of a time getting that back outdoors!!
There's also been moles and prolly hundreds of lizards (which I don't mind because they eat bugs!).
And he does chase/play with, then eat some bugs--including our infamous huge tropical cockroaches aka palmetto bugs, altho he learned to stay away from the large wolf spiders (about 3" diam.) we had at my old house because they BITE!
I watched him learn that lesson: he chased one and the thing jumped onto his belly-- a few seconds later, Snowflake ~jumped~ dropping the spider, which then jumped onto his paw, causing him to ~jump~ again.....needless to say, he ran away from that spider and then just left 'em all alone after that.
Glad to have found this board!
