I am Elwha, cat.
I achieved an item from my bucket list today! My first prey!
I am in the cat cage in the wild outside. Mother opens the window some days. It has been cold and wet, but I go out anyhow. This time I see movement. I freeze and slowly stalk it. My hunt is successful and I make my catch. I squeeze through the door and carry it to the kitchen.
I put it down. I hope it will run, but it is slow. Still alive, though. Mother notices and admires it. I would let her eat it. She doesn’t take it.
Mother is proud, too. I hear her tell the phone “Elwha caught his first worm!”
I taste the worm but I am not that hungry. I left it but it was gone later. Maybe mother got hungry after all.
I bet I can catch more for her!
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: bucket list.
I was hoping Mother saved the worm.
The worm has a new home with a houseplant.
Awww… I will tell my cats how you saved a worm.
Elwha had left it for me.
Maybe mother got hungry after all–ha! Definitely thoughts of a cat. Love this.
Thank you. Elwha is not quite two, so he has not got tons of experience with prey, other than his sister.
