Miss Mitten adds palm rat to her list of victims
Our cat may have set a new speed record for rat hunting. I let her out the door a few days ago and about 60 seconds later she soared back into the Airstream with a rodent dangling from her jaws. She plopped it on the living room floor and I shouted for Josh as visions of scrubbing blood and guts out of our carpet for the second time that week flashed in my mind. (Our fridge switched off a few days prior and blood from the thawed meat in the freezer drained onto the floor.) Josh yanked the rat by the tail away from the cat using a napkin. Miss Mitten tried to snag it back, but the rat was laid to rest in the trash can on the curb.
