Maytag is a very successful predator. He catches many different creatures every week. Mitzie and Loner do also, but not as much as he does. Hardly a day goes by without us finding a morbid little gift left at our doorstep. Now even little Bit-Bit is getting in on the act. The other day she brought us a little garter snake. Loner promptly took it from her and finished it off.
Here’s a partial list of the prey items we have discovered recently:
- Garter snakes
- Rattlesnakes (I will have to post that story sometime)
- Butterflies and moths
For those of you who are not squeamish, there are some fairly graphic photos after the jump.
If you are easily grossed out you might want to stop right here.
Consider yourself warned.
This lovely sight greeted me one morning last week:
A true carnivore, Maytag was chowing down on his prize.
He was pretty much oblivious to me as I snapped his picture.
After I got some pictures, I encouraged Maytag to finish his meal elsewhere.
