Warning: this post contains pictures of one really sweet cat along with the dead bodies of some mice that he killed. Not for the faint of heart. Or weak of stomach. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!
I think it's been a while since I have posted pictures of Tony. So here:
Do you see his sweet face? His soft, scratchable belly? Do you see his loving eyes which are just begging: "Mama - pet me please. Scratch my ears. Love me Mama because I am the sweetest kitty ever." Do you see ALL OF THIS?
Well - it's all an act. Ok. Not really. Tony is still sweet as all get out. But he is also a carnivorous-ravenous-murderer who stalks prey outside, kills it, eats it, and then leaves a trail of dead bodies in the yard for us to discover. It's like an Easter egg hunt. Only bloodier. And gorier. And there's no candy involved. Ok - so it's like a bloody, gory, candy-free Easter egg hunt.
This was what I saw when I get home from Greensboro yesterday and was unloading the epic amounts of crap out of my car:
And at first I am like: That's totally gross. Then I am like: Where's my camera because I so need to take a picture and post about it. And then I see Tony (looking all cute and innocent) and I am like: Dude. You killed a mouse. And I was kind of proud.
Then as I was continuing to unload my car (despite being in Greensboro for less than 24 hours I had 4 bags and 2 boxes to contend with) I stumbled upon this:
He (or she?) was lying about 3 feet away from the first dead mouse body. And when I saw body #2 I was like: TONY! You are a BAD ASS. And then I was like: Please stop leaving me "presents" in the yard because even though I am a Country Girl, there's only so many dead animal carcasses I can handle in a day.
And y'all - 2 dead mice are nothing compared to what Tony killed last week. Apparently, my sweet little angel killed a bunny rabbit and left the remains by the garden hose. I don't know how I missed it but Marty went to show it to me when we got home last Friday night and all that was left were some tufts of bunny fur. Another animal had already come and dragged off the remains.
And if that ain't country, I'll kiss your...
