Easy Like Sunday AM - The Kill

Sol hunted and killed his first grass spider early this morning.
At least the first we know about, somehow I think he's done this before.
Here, he is frantically trying to devour his prey.
(click on photos to biggify)My big concern was stopping him before he actually ate it...
... he was so determined!
There it is, our first glimpse of "the kill". Ugh!
He was so proud, he struted back and forth like he owned that door.
Only we didn't realize until after the pictures were taken....
... look at what is circled behind him.
That is a real live dead small snake in (at least) three pieces.
Really good job, Sol.

Karen Jo, one of the Prize Winners in tha Cat Blogosphere Squillions Contest, received hers package an posted about it. PB&J gotted theirs. Other winners, Pixel and Kashim & Othello, let us know so we can post it. Fanks, KC

Little update on me: Now the two surrounding teeth are hurting like heck.
Could call the doctor, it's not that bad yet, be glad when Monday gets here.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

A real live dead snake? Hmmmm. You must be delerious. Or super excited But we're proud of Sol. He did a good day's hunting and should be rewarded with lots of temptations and a few extra to share.

We're sorry you're feeling worse instead of better. We love the flowers Auntie Deb sent you.

Way to go Sol!
You are king of the beasts, a mighty hunter! You're gonna grow into a great mancat!

ML said...

Thank you, Moki and Jane and Kat and everyone. I feel terrible right now.
Don't think any species likes to have their toofies worked on.
I've got industrial strength vicodin and a bunch of other stuff and it still hurts.
Yup, Sol has patrolled the doors and windows all day long, just looking and waiting for some poor clueless critter to wander in. Auntie Deb even sent him a warning sign to post at the door.

Camie's Kitties said...

Wow Sol, we can't believe you actually killed a snake. Be careful that you don't get hurt.

Good job Sol! Yoo da Man(cat).

caspersmom said...

Good for you Sol, you went for the kill. Do you get to hunt for lizards?? Still no lizards or froggies in our back yard yet. I'm trying to wait patiently. Sorry to hear your Mom is still hurting. Maybe those toofies are in sympathy with the other one that was taken out.
