So Finley managed to kill a rat today in the backyard. Good for her, I'm all for killing rats. But I really think too big a deal is being made over it. She even got to eat duck meat tonight as a treat! Back when I was an indoor-outdoor cat years ago, I killed all kinds of things. I'd kill a bird a day and leave bird heads on the front door for the humans! But when the dog manages to kill a rat, it's a big deal. Oh well, I guess it's good she's good for something.
Maurice left. He hissed some at me, but I didn't hiss as much back. I was not going to lose my "MEOW for Fancy Feast NOW" voice on hissing at him. I learned my lesson in that department.
I believe it was a rat that was the cause they made so much fuss, humans don't like those rats at all! Glad you did not lose your voice this time hissing at Maurice!

Those dogs think they are hot stuff when they catch and kill something.
It just comes natural for us cats. You know what I am meowing about. It's what we do.
Dogs have better PR. "Man's Best Friend" & all that rubbish. Ever hear of a Cat mauling a child? Anyway,Dad used to have a cat named Baxter who killed & ate rats all the time! Ate everything but the tails. Some tails he left for Dad were nearly a foot long!
Why am I not surprised that Jez the Diva left bird heads on front doors back in the day? Glad you didn't waste your breath this time hissing at Maurice - MOL!
I'm glad you didn't waste any hisses on Maurice. I don't think I've ever managed to catch anything bigger than a grasshopper, myself. *blushes at lack of hunting skills*
