He's a killer after all

Well, I am proud to announce that Hunter has killed his first mouse. It was quite the event. While cleaning out my daughters room yesterday I nearly had a heart attack as the stupid rodent scared me half to death. Thankfully, Hunter came to save the day we all jumped up on the girls beds and watched the Gladiator type event unfold. About a half an hour later the mouse was pronounced dead .
Hunter was quite impressive and we all were glad when it was over. He really just played with him so much that eventually the lil nasty critter just couldn't keep up anymore , so when he didn't move it was no longer fun to Hunter. He handed him over and off to the trash it went.
I will say that the event was great to watch through the eyes of my kids. They all had different reactions of course. Em, was sympathetic for the critter until it came runnin her way and then she shrieked in all force, Chloe just kept closing her eyes as did her mom, Solomon ....well let's just say I wish I had a video camera for his facial expressions and Isaiah napped through the whole thing.
The difference between them Em," Mom can't we just keep the lil guy" Chloe " Gross Em I don't want to keep it" Solomon " Oh yeah, that suckers almost dead"
Hooray, Hunter!!! You have earned your keep.

Hunter has earned a place in the family and vindicated the feline species.

wow! i'm kinda afraid of cats, except mittens & snowball. what dog is best for hutin' cats?

No dogs are good for that. Dogs were meant to co-exist peacefully with their feline brethren. It is only when people raise them with wrong expectations that they hate cats. They somehow pick up on the unspoken assumption of their owners that dogs are supposed to be cat-haters. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

it's nice to hear about cats that serve some sort of purpose. i wish dylan could have seen that, though it probably would have just made his fear of cats worse. which is not necessarily bad.

I think Justin and I may need to borrow Hunter...see my blog for the story, I think it's worthy of a full fledged post rather than a lengthy comment on yours.

P.S. what the crap...my verification word is frickin' long!! Usually it's something like "cjdyf"...but this on is "oqyrsyai"...WHAT...THE...CRAP???
