Pick Up on Mouse Street


Above you see a rare photo of the Mysterious Mr. Roscoe in his native habitat. Unlike his little brother Clyde (I think of Roscoe as being the big brother even though they are litter mates and the exact same age), Roscoe tends to go out and stay out all day, unless the weather isn’t up to his high standards. You know how native Californians are.

So I often don’t see him when I’m home, which makes it all the more surprising that I was an observer of his superhero antics yesterday. He came around the corner into the kitchen, leapt gracefully onto the kitchen counter, snatched a mouse from behind (or possibly on top of) the microwave, and then jumped onto the floor, mouse in mouth, and vanished into the woods.

All this happened much faster than the time it took me to write it or you to read it, and there was no time for me to intervene in the mouse’s interests (sorry, mouse!). The casualness and the athleticism were equally impressive.

Makes me wonder what else I miss when I’m not home.

    So is the world of survival of the fittest, cats are natural hunters and predators, they rarely miss an occasion in missing their favorite meal, the mousse, that’s the way it’s been from the beginning. As per photo, Roscoe looks fit and ready for his natural instinct to lick in, lovely cat indeed.

    Roscoe looks like a very sleek and well fed cat…..

    The signs of a good hunter..
