A Hunting We Will Go

 

I am back in the desert, whoopee!  That means lizards!  It has been a long time since I’ve seen a lizard.

This is my hunting ground, right outside the door.


I hear something moving around in the bushes every time I go out.  


Well one day I got him.  I had him before he ever knew what hit him.  A big old rat.

I turned and immeadiatly headed back home with this big rat in my mouth.  He was squealing all the time. I got half way home then thought to myself now that I got this thing, what am I going to do with it?  
So I dropped him on the ground.

Well he just sat there all scrunched up in a ball.  Dad moved in to take a photo which scared him and he ran down into a hole.  Nice going Dad.  He moved some brush out of the way so I could look into the hole while he says to me “Get the rat!  Get him Beans!”  Yeah, like that’s gonna happen after you scared him.


Anyway, that was fun.  I still got it in me.  
Nothing is safe with Beans the mighty huntress around.

I would be scared to have my cat catch a rat (if I had a cat who saw a rat). Can't rats hurt cats?

A kitty on the outside. A LION on the inside!

I see that Beans has further human training to do this winter.

Go Beans. You deserve an extra can of food for losing that rat. I don't blame you having a rest afterwards.
