Get that Boy a Bell

Grasshopper Slayer has become a full blown critter killer.  As I was getting ready this morning, C came up to tell me Minky was standing outside the door with a chipmunk in his mouth.  This made me so sad.  I like the critters in the yard and never wanted him to kill anything.  I couldn't go downstairs until the ordeal was over because I didn't want to see the poor little chipmunk.  C told me he took it from Minky, made sure it wasn't just playing dead, and then disposed of it.  Minky is going to get a bell on his collar if this happens again.

I knew it was just a matter of time!! Now he has tasted the kill and will go after more. (Minky...Foxxy says squirrels are super yummy!, but do not tell your mommy)

It's his natural instinct -- don't get too upset with the poor cat.

Something clicked in him and now his count is up to 2 chipmunk and 1 bird. The second chipmunk was still alive though and Chris saved it.
