Growing up, I had a half-feral tabby cat who we named Pumpkin, because he was roughly the color, shape, and size of a pumpkin.
Not unlike the sassy kitten who scared off a giant bear, he liked to occupy himself by terrorizing the local coyote population. He was what you might call a “bruiser.”
Needless to say, he was not the kind of cat that cuddles up on your lap while you watch TV. Instead, he chose to show his affection by bringing us pieces of various small woodland animals who were not fast enough to escape him.
Pumpkin seemed fairly convinced that we would all starve without his thoughtful contributions. In fact, it’s been my observation that most cats feel this way about the strange, hairless primates they live with.
Sure, they love getting presents, like this silly kitty on Christmas day, but they also see it as their civic duty to give plenty of them. But what is a considerate feline to do when their people move them to a neighborhood that is tragically devoid of rodents?
Well, Dusty, of San Mateo, CA, has come up with an innovative solution to this problem, and it’s truly a game-changer for cats everywhere. Unable to bring his owner any presents the conventional way, Dusty turned, in his time of need, to a life of CRIME.
