Bubbles, the Dark Side
Sometimes, we forget that our little fuzzy friends are really killers. Here is Bubbles with a dove he caught. Since I love all types of fuzzy and non-fuzzy animals I don't encourage this kind of behaviour at all. I have saved countless mice from his claws. And he likes to bring them into the house still very much alive and then I end up with mice living under my refrigerator. I had to buy humane traps to catch them, so I could let them go free outside. I'm sure he is very proud of his prize, but I could really do without having to move all the furniture in my apartment to save yet another hapless mouse. At least he is not catching as many anymore. When he first started to live with me, he was a ferocious hunter. His record is 3 mice and one dove in one day! Now he rarely brings any trophies home. And I'm very thankfull for that!
