When you live in Florida this is the time of year that the days that you can leave the door open for the cats to go out onto the porch are coming to an end. It’s getting too warm and humid for that. So last weekend may have been the last chance for the cats to enjoy the porch for a while.
Ashton decided to make the most of it and caught a lizard.
Being a blogger, the first thing I thought to do was document the incident, so I grabbed my camera, turned on the flash since she was backlit by the outdoors, and started snapping photos.
I expected her to let the lizard go and then catch it again. That would have given me plenty of time to come to the lizard’s rescue.
Ashton had other ideas. She skipped directly to second breakfast.
Ashton: Did I miss any?
The moral of this little story is that when your cat catches something in the house, if you don’t want your cat to eat it, don’t grab a camera. Grab the cat and get the prey away immediately.
Ashton is none the worse for her little snack, and she has been hanging around the front door a little more ever since, just in case another lizard happens to run in. She’ll be right on it.
