We have gophers invading our area. They tunnel and make big piles of dirt. If a cat is patient, she can catch one of those gophers when they pop up above the ground.
That's what I have been doing. Yesterday Mom found a dead but not munched up gopher in the flower bed on the front side of the house. She got a shovel and pitched it somewhere else. She didn't know which cat had caught that gopher and none of us would admit it.
But I was the only cat out during the night. The 3 garage cats were in the garage. Ellie cat doesn't come outside.
There was a gopher on the door mat for Mom this morning. Not partly eaten, not even bloody. Not gross at all. Just dead.
Mom praised me for catching that gopher. They are pests and they do make a mess with those hills out in our pasture.
But she pitched my gopher over there. She just asked me not to put my gophers on the door mat anymore.
I have to let her see my gopher trophies!
