This is one of our kitties. Her name is Soshin and she's a Maine Coon. Although she has no front claws, she doesn't let that stop her from being an avid hunter.
A while back, I saw her walking around with a lizard sticking out of her mouth like a cigar. I thought of Edward G. Robinson right away... "A wild cat, yeh?" I called her Stogey for a few days.
A couple of days ago, I saw Shoshin with another lizard. This time, I ran outside and saved it. I had it in my hand and my husband remarked that it might be already dead. I told him that it didn't feel dead to me because it was moving in my hand. Just then the little sucker bit my hand! [Let me just say that sucker was not the word that came out of my mouth. I'm just keeping it clean]
Sometimes you just can't win.
