Someone said that a cat’s mission in life is to find out what you’re doing, and stop you doing it. An excellent weapon in their arsenal is ‘presents’. This covers the entire spectrum of things that cats will bring into the house to share with their humans.
There was an interesting post on Katzenworld.co.uk on this subject Naturally cat-loving humans got busy in the comments section to brag about what items their felines had brought in.
I have posted previously about the patchy cat and the bat, but then I remembered that she had once brought in a small dove’s egg.
I couldn’t find the photo, but I found the egg! My son had kept it carefully wrapped up in a box.
The egg was somewhat discoloured – it is at least three or four years old, but it cleaned up well and here is the tooth mark.
I’d be interested to hear of any other ‘interesting’ presents from feline friends.
