098: natural predator

I’ve seen their tracks everywhere, but they often pass through, silently, in the midst of the night.  Unseen.

I saw [my] first deer of the season this evening.  And my cat saw his first deer, ever!  And he turned into a little predator!  When the moose were around in the winter, he’d hide under my bed, or under my covers for hours on end.  Deer, though?  I think he thought he could hunt them.

My tiny little killer.  He didn’t stand a chance.  Two steps outside the doorway is as far as he got before they took off.

  1. Dunno why little kitties think that they can catch and eat deer, but it is something they all seem to think that they can do. Maybe they don’t really understand just how big the deer really are? And why can they tell that a moose would be a worse plan than a deer? They seem like in a cats mind they would be similar… The crazed minds of mini predators!
