Our Killer

I saw this article online this morning about a cat somewhere in Europe that was stealing things from people around the neighborhood, and then bringing them back to the owner’s house and presenting them to the owner’s son, who is apparently the cat’s favorite person.

.

He will bring his loot to the son’s room, and then meow incessantly until the boy examines it.
They speculated that the cat was doing it for attention, but who really knows for sure. My roommate had this cat in San Diego that would kill rats, eat half, and present the house with the leftovers. I thought that was pretty nice.

Our cat, Marbles, does something similar here. Over the past few months, she has taken to leaving things for us on the carpet at the foot of our bed, and like the European cat, she will not stop meowing until we examine the loot, or “kill.” Whatever it is. Then she stops, goes somewhere, and rewards herself for all her hard work with a tongue bath and a nap. Usually, her hunts conclude between 330 and 4am, which is especially awesome for me, because it’s too early to get up, and too late to go back to sleep at the same time.

Anyway, here’s some of the things she’s hunted, killed, and left for Jen and I over the past month or so…probably left out a few:

David’s 3D glasses
David’s Batman action figure
A pencil
A formula scoop
A baby bottle cap
A nipple from a baby bottle
A pen
A library card
The cut off end of a bacon package
An entire empty baby bottle
A piece of string
Half of my bootlace
A blue washcloth
A baby spoon
An adult spoon
A butter knife
A pacifier
A baby sock

God has changed my life, and changed me. It's that simple. I will ever be grateful, and if I live to be...well, OLD, I will never tire of telling people about the work done in my life, and what can be done in theirs, should they trust God with their innermost everything...
