|Spoils of mighty hunter (Day 15 of 30)

Telstar is over ten years old now. Is he slowing down, I hear you ask? Perhaps becoming more sedentary, less kittenish, not quite so lethal?
Well. Today's photo is behind a cut because it contains freshly killed bunny (not gory).
I mean, this is still his idea of a weekday morning pre-breakfast gift, so I reckon he's planning to outlive us all.

Uhm ... that must be almost as big as he is ...
Bloke looks kind of proud! 😂
He was. It was such a clean kill as well - almost no blood.
I'm glad Pippin doesn't bring us bunny-gifts, although she certainly tries hard enough to catch them.
Telstar catches almost everything he goes for. It's a mixed blessing. On the one hand, no problems with mice or rats! On the other hand, I love the tremendous variety of bird life we have around here and I do not love the knowledge that he is certainly a detriment to it.
Just to clarify, as a helpful-mammal once pointed out that "if a Bison dropped dead in front of me, it doesn't prove I am a good hunter", was Telstar seen bringing this in?
Did he bring it in the house or leave it in the garden?
Does he just like to 'play' or is his intention to nosh it if he isn't disturbed?
Does he look offended when it is removed?
Mostly Jasper 'plays' then bites then looks disappointed and leaves it. Trying to peel him away from his toy takes two of us.
It certainly is impressive Telstar!
A friend once had the dubious situation of watching his cat drag something through the cat flap...it was a babygro. The cat was most put out when his prize was removed, and then there was the dilemma of 'do you knock on the neighbours doors to see if anyone has a baby'. He said he was very grateful the wife witnessed it... can you imagine the scenario if she had returned home to find lingerie on the floor and he had to explain that 'the cat dragged it in'. :D
He brought it through the cat flap and deposited it proudly in the kitchen in front of us. He does indeed look offended when his gifts are rejected.
A babygro would freak me out, not least because I would be wondering what he'd done with the baby. O.O
Lol, ohhh well done Telstar, at least you will have something for the pot when the crash happens :)
As for the babygro...yep exactly that, no one locally had a baby to the best of his knowledge, the item was muddy but carefully checked and no blood stains were found. It was left on a local wall.
