Daisy in the garden

This is my cat Daisy, enjoying the flowers in the garden.


She may look mild-mannered and sweet, but in actual fact, she is a fierce and single-minded hunter.  Daisy has no time for niceties such as cuddling and purring.  Eat. Sleep. Hunt.  Those are her main objectives, and anyone interfering with that should WATCH OUT.  

I have tried to keep a count of the rodents she has caught so far this season (or the pieces of them I find on the porch every morning).  So far?  Daisy's summer mouse count:  42.  Well done, my furry friend.   May you hunt for many more seasons.

Maybe we should introduce Daisy to Bootsie.

His only objectives in life is to get outside, head on over to my place and eat, eat, eat.

Oh and add sleep, but only after his tummy is full.

She is a real cutie, wonderful that she can roam around safely.

She looks like a beautiful statue in your garden..she is a great hunter..when we had cats they always brought the fresh meat to the front door..sometimes even sneaking it into the house:)

A gorgeous cat - and an amazon warrior, by the sound of things...

I just found your Blog. I enjoyed reading about your small town. Could Daisy come over to my yard and eat her "room and board" in all of the Voles that live in my lawn? Maybe I should just get a cat of my own. I know I would never have to buy cat food with all the "critters" around here.

Wow what a tallented little kitty! You are lucky to have her.

Wow she is a good hunter! Our black cat Inky used to hunt like that...her favorite was baby bunnies which was just heartbreaking! But she is mellowing with age...not hunting so much anymore. Daisy is a beauty!

Holy mouse! :) She has beautiful markings. My sister has a hunter too....and my mom, although, that cat is indoors only now. Before my parents rescued her, she was abandoned and became a hunter because it was the only way she could survive! Even after they adopted her and she had all the kitty chow one could want, she still hunted. For sport? ;)
