#104 – Hunter And Prey

Photo taken: September 21, 2017

Most cats are mousers by instinct, and there’s no bigger rodentine prize for a feline hunter quite like a squirrel.  The neighborhood cat I called Sewie, from the stories I’ve heard, is a natural born killer.  Don’t let the pretty face fool you.  Here he is at one end of the photo sizing up a fat, juicy squirrel down the street.  It’s one of the very few pictures I’ve ever gotten of a cat and a squirrel in the same frame… thankfully, for us squirrel lovers, with enough separation that barring an epic fail on the part of the sciurine, will not result in any loss of life.  But you know what Sewie’s thinking….. “I’ll get you next time, dinner.  Next time….”

    One of the many cats in my life, a gorgeous, black long hair we called Magnus, liked to play with squirrels in our front yard. They chase each other up and down trees, and cavorted on the ground. Guess his killer instincts weren’t working. He was semi feral at the time but moved in with us soon.

    Not a chance, Sewie. Squirrels can really move! Though their favourite “hide up a tree” trick will be less than successful against a cat…

  5. Hope the kitty won that round.

  6. I think Sewie was having second thoughts even as he was having his first thoughts…..watching them is usually much more successful a venture than CATCHING them!

    I wonder if Sewie has ever caught a squirrel. I would think they would put up one hell of a fight! I think their size and feisty nature is why Trouble and Scooby never bothered them. The boys are/were too cowardly to confront something that big. Once they had an injured baby rat trapped on the deck and when it raised its pathetic little paw, they both ran away!

    • Our old cat Fluffy took out a squirrel once. Not that we saw her do it, but the carcass couldn’t have been left by anyone but her. Fluffy also offed a rabbit and left it on our porch, and used to chomp down mice in practically a single gulp. Not bad for a smallish tortie who ruled the neighborhood with an iron paw…
