What the Cat Brought Home..and No More Cat Scabs

I wrote here about the scabs that ca Beere gets on her ears.  Whatever the season is for what she was getting, it's now over.

Well, her penchant for capturing shrews seemed dormant for awhile but yesterday she again brought home a Blarina brevicauda, the short tailed shrew.

 


Long ago when a previous cat brought home a shrew, I originally keyed out the shrew to determine the species. I vividly recall that the guide book said something like "This is the shrew that the cat brings home and drops on the doorstep."

I said to the bride, "Well, it must not be the short-tailed shrew--the cat left this one on the porch, not the doorstep."
