We live in a clearing surrounded by acres of woods with a few neighbors behind us at the top of the ridge that we can't see except for in winter when there are no leaves on the trees.
I was talking on the phone to a friend last week telling her about our neighbor's cat Jack. I told P that he often comes down the mountain to visit us and that he likes to hunt in our yard.
P responded rather vehemently :"He hunts in your yard? And you let him? That's dangerous!"
Wondering why she was getting so upset I told her that he especially likes to go under the house in the crawlspace to hunt. "What?" P exclaimed.loudly "Oh my God why?"
"Because there is lots of good stuff under there'" I explained calmly. "Voles, mice, chipmunks."
"P" I asked, "Did you hear me when I said Jack is a cat?"
" A CAT!!!" P stated back. " I thought you were talking about a person named Jack!!"
We had a good chuckle over this, imagining a human hunter, rifle slung over his shoulder, dressed in camouflage clothing, crawling around in the tiny space under the house looking for prey!

MOL! Your mom's friend needs to pay better attention.
MOL! That is so funny! I started getting the feeling that P missed the part about Jack being a cat. :)
Concatulations on 600 posts! I'm glad you only let kitties hunt on your property - it gets too crowded when humans try to horn in on the fun!
Concatulations! 600 posts! That is quite the accomplishment.
hee hee! That is funny! Concats on 600 posts! We hope there'll be another 600 at least :) purrs,

MOL... Jack the cat VS Jack the human.
and Concatulation for your 600th post!
Gandalf and Gracie LOVE to hunt. Unfortunately, Gracie is not allowed outside because of her Special Leg, so her hunting is limited to the small prey who find their way onto the screened patio.... hornets, lizards, mothras...
Gandalf hunts larger prey, like birds. And Evil Squirrel. The squirrels here at the Swamp appear to be much smarter than the squirrels at the Yellow house in the Pecan Orchard... Gandalf and Grayson have been unable to catch any here! Good, I say!
That is hysterical. I can just see the neighbor under the house hunting. What a funny story.
So we have a rubber ducky day. We are all set for that. Have a great day.
Thanks for my morning chuckle!
