I was sitting here tonight minding my own business when I noticed that The Bunch were paying way too much attention to my Tek oscilliscope sitting on the floor beside me. Now I know that the kids are Technocats but the interest seemed too high, even for them. So I stroll over and take a lookey-see. I lift up the scope and lo and behold, what do I find but this little critter.
Pretty l’il thang, isn’t he?
He wasn’t terribly happy with the whole situation. He decided that he wanted a piece of me :-)
I’d seen him hanging around my front porch last week. He was already bobtail. The stump had pretty well healed over by the time The Bunch got interested in him.
Normally I let the kids eat what they catch but in this case, I had a pretty good hunch that I’d find the remains deposited on my bed spread or somewhere similar after kitty tummies became unhappy with such a fine delicacy. So I took him outside.
He wasn’t in any big hurry to go. Notice the l’il gift he was trying to leave me! There at the bottom of the picture. :-) Ingrate.
Anyhoo, he finally decided that I was inedible and let go. Last I saw, he was trundling off to hide under the woodpile. Meanwhile The Bunch seem to be forming a long term relationship with my O’scope. They’ve been closely guarding it for the last hour. Silly tats.
