Nature in Action

Yes, cats are creatures of nature. Designed by God in His infinite wisdom. It may seem cruel to us, the instinct to hunt and capture... but it is really just the circle of life. This bird, however, lived to see the next day. You see, our Pepper just thrills in the HUNT. And then plays with her capture. This smart bird found a place behind the milk can on the front porch (survival instinct) where Pepper could not reach her. When Pepper lost interest, she flew away. Yes, this is the same cat that came walking through the house with a baby bearded dragon in her jaw... this particular dragon is our biggest, healthiest one now. Pepper is just the 'most wild' cat we have, a reminder of our Creator and His unfathomable design of life. Our other cats are too much like people! You might wonder how I was able to take such a shot? Well, I was on the front porch enjoying my quiet time, and things got not so quiet! I heard a lot of squawking and bushes rattling and looked to see birds flapping and fussing and here comes Pepper running straight to me with her prize! So much for quiet! And yes, Pepper has a bell on her collar, but she is so stealth like that she can pounce with out even a ring-a-ling... I have thought of putting two or three on her collar! Sometimes the birds do not survive her playfulness :0(

This reminds me of Nitro. Right now he's too busy establishing his territory to worry with the birds, but I know its coming....

Normal kitty! We had one who would hunt frogs and just eat the legs!
