Tatiana got out of the apartment again last night.  As I was steering her back towards my apartment, she suddenly veered off, like she was chasing something.  Turns out she was, a mouse!  The poor mouse did not survive.  However, it wasn't Tatiana that killed it, but me.  I accidentally stepped on the poor thing.

Needless to say, Minto, the company that manages this apartment building, is going to get a call from me.

My cats are quite excellent hunters and I actually get excited when there is a mouse as pray for them.

Lol, shades of the murinely named Prince Myshkin! I can imagine you in your former life as a Russian lord of the manor with a pack of hunting dogs swarming around your booted feet, announcing in French you are happy your hounds will get some good sport now that a bear has appeared and terrified serf childen picking berries in the woods!
Берёзы севера мне милы,
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

My Charlotte is also an excellent hunter, but I can't say I get excited when she wakes me up at 2:00 am asking me to praise her for her kill ;)

They usually say that if a cat is well fed, it won't kill.  However, sometimes the urge to hunt is strong in them, they've been doing this since the days when Smilodon Fatalis roamed the Earth.

Anyone watch my new video yet?

Yes, I did. Tatiana looks like a very content cat.

I thought it was worth mentioning that my cat Teddy has decided to take out his boredom and/or aggression on a paperback copy of Helen Azar's "Maria & Anastasia diaries". The little guy jumped to the top of out nearly six foot high dresser, where the book was placed, and went to town on it. Not sure what he has against Helen or the Grand Duchess's but I'm about ready to throw his Commie a#$ out onto the street (just kidding)! :-)

I watched the video, Tim--Tatiana is a beautiful cat!

And edubs31, I'm laughing at your Teddy destroying a Romanov book, because Charlotte chewed up my copy of Nicholas and Alexandra.  What is it with these cats?

Thankfully, Tatiana has left my Romanov books alone.

He gets into everything. Especially if it's placed up high on something...

Thanks. He's a handsome little guy. He's also a frisky biscuit. I'll have to post a picture or two if his calico sister Sophia.
