A moment of awe for cats.

For two days in a row, I've seen a young, very fit, what I would call "brindle" cat coming up the neighbor's driveway with a chipmunk in its mouth. Maybe this is common cat behavior, but I'm quite impressed. I didn't think it was actually possible to catch a chipmunk. They seem to move so much more quickly than anything else, and I've never seen a cat with one before. Well done, cat!

Yes! When I lived in places where chipmunks were native, my cats caught them every day too. I used to feel badly for the chipmunks and preferred when my cats instead caught the moles that ate all my flowers. I have a weakness for cute animals.

All the critters seem to be cute here. There are two bunnies in my yard, and I'm preparing myself for the likelihood that our neighborhood fox will get at least one of them.
