a partial list of things our cat brought into the house

mice
rats
moles
voles
chipmunk
baby rhinoceros
garter snake
bob barker
duckling
miscellaneous other birds

most of these little woodland creatures were already dead by the time the cat got them into the house, but some were still technically alive, providing him with many hours of amusement. his favorite were birds that could still sort of fly -- they would lurch spastically through the air, into walls, etc, leaving feathers and blood everywhere...

the duckling was alive, and we released him back into the stream at the rear of our property.

the snake was dead, but didn't realize it right away.

my wife locked the chipmunk in the bathroom. he tore around the room, jumping crazily from towels to bath to sink, and ended up falling into the toilet bowl. we're not sure if if he was just clumsy, or if it was a suicide attempt.

i was just kidding about bob barker. and the rhinoceros.

This is so disgusting!!(Except for the "lucky duck") And I hate my display name because some writers might think I'm their mother or something.
(I do like your writing though)
