Popularity Increases

We had another visitor!!! This is the second one this week. Late last night, Dad took us out for our final run in the yard before bed. He let us out and turned his back to put on his sandals since he was planning to come out and enjoy the evening air with us too. When he started out behind us, he noticed that Sky was trotting around the yard and looking very proud. Dad later said that he was thinking: that's not like Sky. When Sky turned towards Dad, he realized that Sky had caught an opossum!!!
Dad got Sky to let go of it. Then Canyon grabbed hold of it and he started to trot around. Well, I had to get in on the fun too. So, when Dad got Canyon to drop it, I got my turn. We were having a grand old time, but Dad was pretty upset about the situation. Finally, Dad was able to get a hold of two sticks. One to keep us pushed away, and the other to pick up the opossum with and throw it over the fence. By the time this had happened, we had already been carrying it around enough in our mouths to have killed it. Dad had to go out with a plastic bag to put it in. Sky sure was mad at Dad. He spent the rest of the evening giving Dad the Evil Eye. What would you have done if someone grabbed food out of your mouth that you had just caught. before you even got a chance to play with it? Mom said it was a good thing we had been to the V-E-T earlier and gotten our rabies shots.

You dad should have been proud that you were protecting the yard. At least that is the excuse we use when we catch something.

Good hunting skills! Wow, we've never met an opposum before. Do they taste like chicken?

No-possums are stupid. Lex once brought one inside. It got a huge reaction out of my Human!

You are brave and fierce hunters, I might have run away.

Oh so close! Next time you have to run to the dark part so Dad can't see you. Meeka chased a possum into a tree once.

Great job! You were only protecting your yard and doing your Siberianly duty! Stupid humans always ruin it by taking away our dead things!

Oopsie. Well, I don't like it when my parents take food out of my mouth...but when I grab something I shouldn't I do know it and I feel really bad. Maybe next time you should give your Dad the "sad eyes" instead of the evil one. This might get you more points. :)

Humans take all the fun stuff away.

I know, humans are so wierd about that! When I caught a baby bird that got loose at PetSmart my mom made me drop it! The bird was okay. But I wanted a snack!

Yeah, It is VERY RUDE of them to take our catches away from us. I got an opossum once and mom stole mine and wouldn't let me eat it. I did all the work catching it and killing it and then she comes and takes it away. I was mad!!!
