While I enjoyed Petey's post about our mousie; it left me wanting for more.
Now don't get me wrong.
Everything I learnt, I learnt from Pete.

Any ways...

Oh Yeah,
Hunting Protocols.
Something that is so obvious to us cats is totally lost on the humans end.
They do their so called "hunting".
Which for most humans, involves them jumpin' in the metal machine and "navigating" to the nearest mega-mart; then choosing from neatly packaged "comestibles".

And now...

Proper Hunting Protocols.
Sniff the air; take in the essence that is your prey.
Follow that scent and determine its origins.
Then, carefully and cautiously, stalk your prey.

when the time is right; pounce like your life depended upon it.
Don't kill it too quickly; take your time and savor the moment.
Have some fun; life is short; enjoy your catch.
Don't be afraid to play with your food.
Bat it around; feel the softness of its fur or the tickle of it feathers on your paws.

when you're done played out.
Do what any self-respecting house cat should do...

leave it at the foot of your favorite human; to show them that you are a mighty hunter.

Hi everyone!
So glad to meet you, and thanks for stopping by our blog!
You hunting protocol is exactly correct in every detail! Scooby was so good scenting out the possum yesterday, but then he ran inside when mom opened the door.....hey, those things have rows & rows of shark like teeth in those ugly mouths! Take no unnecessary chances!
The best direction is your last one. Humans do so love it when we put prey at their feet, don't they!!
