When Cupcake has an outing, she often gets a little recreation time in our garden beforehand. She checks out our flowering shrubs, which are confused about whether it’s time for spring already.
Cupcake doesn’t look in the shrubs because she wants to become a horticultural kitty. She is looking for the lizards she often sees from inside the house. When she sees one, she dives in after it.
She emerged with some clover and a lizard. Lizards can carry parasites, so it isn’t a good idea to encourage your cat to eat them. I tried to get her to drop it.
She used her paw to stuff it back in, and the lizard was never seen again.
Cupcake! How could you?
She caught another a few minutes later we managed to get loose from her jaws. The lizard then crawled up her face. I wished I had video of that and her surprised and frustrated expression at that moment.
After that, Cupcake was all worn out for our visit with her buddy, Rocco, at the coffee shop patio. Too much excitement for one cat’s morning.
