After the incident earlier this week when Mama Cat killed a crunchy birdie, the Guardians decided that maybe they better try to help Mama Cat release some of her pent up predatory tendencies. And what better way to do that than to let her practice her Catlympic skills! The Guardian’s were working on the assumption that, if Mama Cat exercised until she was tired, she would be more likely to just take a nap rather than slaughter a birdie. I didn’t tell Mama Cat that this was there intent though. I just told her that I had asked the Guardians to give her a training session. She was very excited by the news.
Mama Cat was excited about the possibility of a training session. She got into a ready stance as the session began.
Mama Cat eased into the training session. She watched the artificial bird make a few passes.
Mama was clearly choosing the right moment to strike. She kept her eyes on the birdie.
As the bird made a low and slow pass, Mama made her move.
She made a simple, two-pawed pounce to stop the bird in its tracks.
Mama gave the bird a quick workover with her claws.
She then did a quick power crunch with her teeth.
The initial bird takedown whetted Mama’s appetite for more. She released the bird and the handler made it fly overhead. Mama moved into a bi-pedal stance and prepared for what I knew was going to be a spectacular display of cathleticism.
I had no idea what I would see next, but I knew it would be good. I was right.
