Things Through the Cat Flap

Not everything that arrives at our house comes through the letter box.  We often have little presents delivered via the cat-flap, brought to us by one of the 'terrible two'.   Our two cats, Costa and Nero are very good hunters, and always feel the need to bring home their spoils to show to us.
Over the past three and a bit years they have brought us many gifts including mice, voles and birds - some dead, and some very much alive.
I'd really rather they didn't!!     My heart drops when the cat-flap goes and I look up to see one of them striding in with a gift in their mouth - I've lost count of the number of times that Martin and I have had to chase a live mouse around the house, catch it and let it free.
They are fabulous cats, I love them to bits and wouldn't be without them, but I really could do without the extras!

  1. I love love love that pic! I have an indoor kitty so thankfully we never get those kinds of presents. She is a rubbish hunter though, spiders get past her aall the time xx
