Eric the Hunter.

The other day I caught a shrew in the garden and took it indoors to show mum. I had a point to prove cuz Flynn always sez he is the Mighty Hunter and he has to catch the mousies for me.




Well, the proof is in the pudding so to speak, and here I am with my prey.




It had already gone dead when I took it indoors, but it was much too cold to stay outside with it.



And this is the out take video.

You are one great hunter, Eric! Did your mum bury it in the garden?

What a fabulous hunter you are Eric! I am so proud of you. I have a question. Is a shrew a mousie? Your mom is so much braver than mine, I know if I ever brought something like that into the house, not that I can because I stay inside, but just say if I were to she would be screaming and running the other way.

Good work, Eric. We never doubted your hunting skills. We loved the little paw nudges when it stopped moving.

CCL Wendy said...

Eric is a very SHREWd hunter indeed! It's also wonderful that Flynn let him have his shining moment.

Good thing the shrew was already dead or it would have been in for a lot of pain the way Eric was whapping it about! Beats a toy mousie, any day, doesn't it Eric!

Merry Christmas to you and your mighty hunters!

Daisy said...

Eric, you have definitely proven your worth as hunter, too, now!
