Yes my friends! I have done it again! I am TOKI!! Chipmunk-bane!!!
There he was, gorging himself under the birdfeeder when I spied him from my spot by the drain pipe. Silently, I crouched lower with the grace passed down by my ancestors. The foolish chipmunk continued to stuff his face full of seeds, oblivious to his peril. Suddenly I struck, descending upon him like a biblical plague... (SHUT UP MOM, stop muttering and rolling your eyes! This is MY story!) uh- where was I? Oh yes: DESCENDING upon him like a biblical plague! The chipmunk squirmed and fought, scrabbling with his paws, but to no avail. I had him in my jaws. Standing up tall, I puffed out my chest and walked proudly to the door so I could bring my prey inside. I waited. My mom stared down at me with dismay. She cursed. I clenched the chipmunk in my jaws and waited. And waited. Mom started begging me, pleading for the chipmunk's life. She pointed out the seeds visible in the poor chipmunk's mouth. I ignored her and waited. (Seriously MOM, what's your DEAL? Why couldn't I just bring him inside? He was stupid enough to get caught!) I waited and waited. I looked at my mom with wide eyes, but she refused to open the door. 25 minutes! My heartless mom let me stand there with a chipmunk in my mouth for 25 minutes and wouldn't open the door! Finally I put the darn chipmunk down to adjust my grip, but my mom dragged me away and the chipmunk took off. Speedy little sucker. Okay, so maybe I can't call myself Chipmunk-BANE. But I could have been!
Hey, btw guys, thank you everybody for the pirate flags!! I hope everybody is doing ruthless pirate-y things! Take no prisoners but take plenty of chipmunks!

It must have been Theodore...I think he was the dumbest of the 3....at least chipmunks don't have musk like the snake....
That was some catventure, Toki! Wow...when I escaped to the outdoors, I was more interested in eating grass than hunting, MOL!!
Dog-guy would have given that chippy a shake or two...
I wonder if Pipo or Minko could catch one given a chance??
Dang, I was waiting for the good part where you bit him in half. That was one pawsome hunter tale!
OOOOO way to go Toki! My brofuer-in-law, Hudson (Morticia's hubby), has ongoing feuds w/the chipmunks in THEIR yard in NY State ... you two should get together! Bet you could LAY WASTE!
HA! Tigger, you are so right, it was Theodore! He was stuffing his face, and Theodore was always the plump one.
Toki angel, my mom was checking me afterwards to see if I stunk. Thank goodness i was fine. No bath.
Newman, I wish I could have bit him in half too, but I wanted to bring him inside first. Mom didn't try to pry open my mouth because she didn't want me to clamp down harder.
Feisal! Bro! I miss u. I'm glad Morticia's got a manly man. I wish Hudson and I could hunt together too. Tag-team chipmunk hunt!
Never seen a chip monk before but mom says they are awefully cute and small. Personally if it fits in the mouth I thank it's game, cute or not.
Yeah, mom thinks they are really cute too. She felt really bad because he totally had seeds in his mouth when I had him in my jaws.
Sorry you had to let the chipmunk go. Too bad.
Catch and release? That just means he will be back again for you to catch him tomorrow! Good job Chipmunk Bane!
Hehe- hopefully if I catch him again he'll be fatter.
Put some bread out for the munk....then you'll have chipped munk with stuffing....*licks lips,drools*
Hi Toki, It made me feel better just reading about you great adventure!
You always have such a good time outside. I'm finished with the yucky liquid medicine and my shots are not too bad.
Happy purrs to my friend,
Hey - high five, bro! I'm kinda late seeing this, but then it's never too late to share one's accomplishments. I, myself, caught a vole in the house (!) that had been stealing OUR FOOD! Can I be vole bane if you're chipmunk bane?
Yes! Samhain, VOLE-BANE! That rhymes. Aren't voles like sort of fat mice? Mmmmmm: fat mice.
