RE: pets and prey

Oh my - bet that was pretty.  I'm lucky Sugar is a hunter and devours completely whatever she catches.
She's caught very few birds in 8 years thanks to mama's vigilance, but
the only one big enough she couldn't eat whole was given a proper
burial. She had a fit to get under the cabinet beneath the sink once it
turned cold. I heard crunching and she came out licking her chops.
Mousie snack. Now every morning she wants under there to check. She
earns her keep, believe it.
