Mancat Monday.

Mum saw me intently watching under the bushes in the garden last week and thought I was waiting for mousies. When she saw me playing with something, she thought I had caught one. When she went outdoors, this is what she saw.

It was okay though because I had deaded it for her, not like the one I brought home for her before. That one was bigger than this one, but it looked the same and is probably a baby grass snake and not a poisonous viper.
It was fun to play with though.

Oh, a snake, what fun that looks to be! We've never seen a snake, actually. Our human feel sorry for the poor little snake, having lost its life, but hey, hunting is what we're supposed to do. And you excel at it, Flynn!

Eek gads, I am glad you deaded it...it looks fierce even deaded!!!

Simba said...

I do want you boys to be ABSOLUTELY SURE you are dealing with harmless snakes when you do this kind of thing. My Mom's heart would have stopped if I had ever caught a snakey.

ABBY said...

Momma is freaking out over the snake. She has bad memories of a snake inside the house which she had to dedded. You both are such good hunters, we hope that you never have to rangle with a vicious snake.

You are so brave to have deaded that snake!!!

We've never seen one in our backyard, but I bet if there ever was one, my momma Ellie would take care of it, just like you did.

Purrrr...

Max said...

Doood...I have to know... did it taste like chicken???

missbreezysbox said...

Did you eat it? If you didn't, at least you tried to do something with it.
My husband says Harley doesn't earn his keep. He gets my husbands attention that there's a bug in the house-doesn't that count?

Katnip Lounge said...

Mmmmmmmm, snake. Tastes like chik-hen!

Laila and Minchie said...

WOW! Where did you learn how to hunt vishus snakes like that!

Sparkle said...

My crazy human actually LIKES snakes! She feels bad for the one Flynn caught. I've never seen a snake around here, which is probably a good thing because the majority of snakes in my part of the U.S. are rattlers!

Jacqueline said...

Flynn, you are an impressive hunter, but we're glad it wasn't poisonous and we're sure your Mum was glad you killed it!...Our Mom had an outdoor kitty (Jax RIP, Mommy Cat and Daddy Cat's son) who was bit on the face by a snake and almost died=she wrote a post about it on his birthday, May 13...Take care sweet boy, we are so glad you are ok...kisses x3 beautiful boy friends...Calle, Halle, Sukki

You both are excellent hunters, definitely. But our the Mom got very swoony - in a bad way - seeing those pics.

The Paw Relations said...

Wow! A grass snake! You guys have all the fun.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Thank goodness is was deaded else you'd have heard our mum screaming her head off. Anything without furs like frogs, toads, newts just make her freak!! Silly Mum.

SuziQCat said...

WTG Flynn...the mighty hunter! We watched a cat try to catch a mouse outside our house the other night....he didn't succeed though. We told him to take some lessons from you :)

Luna

Marg said...

Good job Flynn. We love to kill snakes. Mom hates those things. Great work. That is a great video of you playing with that silly snake.
Have a great day.

CCL Wendy said...

It's probably not as much fun to play with once you 'deaded' it! There's just no challenge anymore and it doesn't wriggle.

Next time, leave it alive, at least until you've had some fun with it.

And you're a good boy for not bringing it home to Mom. I'm sure she would not have appreciated it.

You know, we is kinda glad we are inside kitties cuz things like that scare us...but we sure like reading, and watching, your hunting adventures!
