Thursday Targets

Da Genj: #1 is wondering whether it has something to do with the changing weather and high winds we've been getting, but we have been in high hunting mode lately (except for Da Beebs who has been hunting for treats and cuddles exclusively). Yesterday morning, she heard mousie squeals in her closet and dragged me out of there before shutting the door and wishing the mousie a successful escape back to wherever he had come from. And then later, in the day, she caught me doing this:

There have been no spoils of war yet...

Tama-Chan: Yes, there is definitely something in the air. This is what #1 caught me doing yesterday:

I have refused to tell her what it was. I was on the high beam in the study, where the sky hammocks are suspended.

As for #1 herself, look at the predator she caught on camera yesterday!

Sorry it's a bit blurry but that is a kestrel hunting!


  1. WOW. You're all furry good hunters. san would also remove me from whatever I'm hunting as its usually my sisfur Akira.

  2. Yup, this is the time of year when critters look for warmer places.
    Julie is looking forward to"mouse season"
    Mom, not so much.
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  3. There was apparently a mouse or rat around here too - I was stalking it - but it seems to have escaped. Darn!

  4. I wonder what you found up there, Tama-Chan. The other day, Goro saw a mosquito and tried to hunt it :-)
    Love the last picture - #1 captured a great shot of the big birdie!

  5. It would be a great day for you to go hunting here today Genji - the sun is shining and there are lots of little creatures to play with.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  6. Dang, don't give up, I think I heard something in there too!

  7. You got to patrol for unwanted pests
    Lily & Edward

  8. mom says the cooler weather makes us a ltitle nutty too

  9. The cats are playing "Sherlock Holmes". Maybe there are more mice to be found. The cooler weather could be making them friskey. When it's hot, everyone feels lethargic. It becomes nap time. I bet the horses are loving this weather. I hope everyone has a good day!

  10. Watch out mousies! :)

    the critters in the cottage xo

  11. Those mousies sure picked the wrong home to enter.

  12. Genji tu as le même problème que moi ! Ils pourraient quand même nous laisser chasser en paix tous ces humains !
    Tama tu as trouvé un truc intéressant là haut ?
    Il est beau et grand cet oiseau.
    Ici il y a des buses variables avec une envergure de 1,30. C'est grand ça. Quand j'étais chaton et en harnais, je voulais me cacher quant j'en entendais une appeler dans le ciel. L'autre jour il y en a une qui a piqué vers la terrasse juste devant la maison et elle a attrapé une tourterelle.
    Bonne chasse

  13. Cooler temps outside do make those little mousers look for warmer quarter inside:) We are on the hunt OUTSIDE - those darn rabbits!!!

    Woos - Ciara and Lightning

  14. We're sure you'll catch those critters soon.

  15. Good hunting! The colder weather tempts those tasty little snacks indoors.

  16. Hope you do get a mousie or two to play with.

  17. MOWZERS! Midnight snacks!! Somekitties have ALL the luck....
