    There is no doubt that I have a brave and fierce guardian of the property - my office kitty. I once posted about my daily offerings of dead things - mice, rats, birds, even a humming bird - found every morning by my chair as a gift. In fact just now I looked on the other side of my desk, and there is today's kill - a sparrow. Thanks so much Bun!

    But the other night Bun showed just how fierce she really is. I had been working late and didn't realize that a deer had gone to sleep right outside the door. When I opened the door, we scared the deer half to death, and it scared both of us [Bun and I] about as much as it tried to scramble to its feet. I swang around and hit the deer with the beam of the flashlight just in time to see it heading off towards the bushes on a dead run, with Bun right on its tail!!! :rofl::rofl::rofl: I wonder what she would do if she caught it!!!

    :rofl: good kitty

    Hey, Ivan -- How about some pictures of Bun? I don't think I have seen any of her since she was a baby.

    I just came in and expected to find a deer under my chair. :biggrin:

    MIH, I have been meaning to dig out the camera, so I will post a shot soon.

    I think she may actually be buddies with the deer, so she may have considered this as play. We have seen Zoobie [not Zooby] playing hide and seek with one before.

    Yes, cats often befriend wildlife of their own size or larger. In out last house, our 2-doors-down neighbor had a really shy calico cat that avoided people but used to show up at night under our bird-feeders with her skunk/possum friends patiently waiting for them to tank up on sunflower seeds.
