*What* a handsome cat!

Don't tell Max I'm faunching after someone else, his bite is worse than his bark.

Ah, but Max brings in Beanie Babies.

Talia, in this picture, is looking for a live mouse. On the duvet. On top of me. She'd come in doing her prey growl - the one that's muffled because it has to go round the body of whatever it is she's got in her mouth.

I was woken out of a doze by this, and called for bellinghwoman to kindly please come remove the mouse. Talia dropped mouse on duvet, bellinghwoman caught it (this takes practice, but we've had plenty of practice), and I grabbed the camera from beside the bed and shot this picture down the bed.

(I'd just bought the camera in question from knell, and was reading the manual in bed. And was referring to the camera itself while doing so. Which is why I had a Nikon D70 on the bedside table.)

Laugh.

Naturally, we'd disagree.

Thanks. She's a 9 year old Abyssinian. In this case, she was in fully alert hunting posture, trying to work out where her mouse had gone.

(Said mouse being in bellinghwoman's hands, some metre above the cat's head. One day, she'll realise than bringing her prey into the bedroom is a sure-fire way to have it taken off her.)

Nice cat! Not as cute as our two, of course...

Not as cute, no. (Which doesn't exclude being more cute, of course.)

She wasn't trying for cuteness at that point - she was wondering where the mouse was.

(Answer - 3 foot above her head, as it happens.)
