Cats On Tuesday
This past year we had a mango tree which kept producing an incredible harvest of magnificent mangoes. There were so many mangoes constantly falling from this 'giving tree' that we attracted a large fruit rat which chomped on many of them. We didn't care because there were more than enough mangoes to go around. After the mango season was over, we wondered what happened to our fruit rat. This past week, we found out.
Anela presented us her gift of a very bloody mess of a formerly fat fruit rat on our outside carpet near our sliding door. My partner saw it first, and since I'm normally the one who cleans up after Anela, it would have been my job to clean this mess up. However, since I've been ill, the job fell upon my partner's shoulders, and he wasn't at all happy about the clean-up. However, Anela I'm sure felt very proud of herself because this rat was a BIG one, and she had accomplished her kill. We praised her. She's still got a lot of good 'mouser' in her even though she's growing older!
