Note: this story has now been renacted as a dramatic performance with interpretive pantomime in rural Alaska, to the delight of two small children and their parents.

It was pretty funny when the caribou got out the car with the 12 pack and some groceries...

Going forward, please think things through before you post, otherwise we might mistake you for a liberal.

And 3 cats and 3 dogs made for a very lively scenario. Finally after banishing the dogs to the yard, and looking for the rat we discovered it under the couch. It had fainted. I put it outside to revive.

The cats next present was a shrew.


Wicked cat
You were nice enough to put the critter in the exact same place that allowed him to be caught by the cat. 'Cept this time he was distressed, weakened and in pain.
With help like yours, who needs enemies?

Do moose's chase grizzly's, or is that the other way around?

Great story!

Since I,too, live with a great fuzzy hunter. And mine has her own cat-size door, I sympathize completely.

I don't get a lot of critters. I do get scorpions. Contrary to popular belief those suckers are fast. Hard to kill, too. You do get one shot. You miss and they are gonzo.

I did have one visitor last year. Stayed in and out of my backyard for a full week last year. Baby bunny abandoned by parents.

We also do get coyotes. Mostly they are shy, but can be a danger to household cats. They are smaller than portrayed in the movies. Maybe about 1/2 way between the size of a beagle and dalmantion and all are skinny. HOA has been sending out warnings b/c they are becoming more daring and taking over the neighborhood like zombieland.
