Cindy my infamous old cat,
Often brings me part of a rat.

Sometimes a bird leg she brings.
Really, what can I do with those things?

Now she brought part of a squirrel.
I guess somehow he had his last whirl.

I assume you know which part brought.
The bushy part I would not have sought.

From the appearance of that tail,
He probably had plenty of tales to tell.

The rear fur was fine as any silk,
Oily as the buttercream on milk.

Rufous belly as great color known,
That tail when twitched orange shades were shown.

He loved our Italian cuisine,
Also those type of green beans. 

Sad to see him go in such a way.
I guess that Cindy was hungry that day. 

Our garden is just outside of a large wooded area. Squirrels come from the woods and eat our garden. They seem to love green apples, olives, and green beans. The squirrel when well fed is a very lovely animal though.

My cats have done that in the past but the one I have now won't be caught dead around a stinky corpse or even part of one. She's unusual that way; she'll chase anything out of her yard but, she's so spoiled rotten on "Friskies and her favorite treats that I doubt she eat a squirrel if she were starving.

M.L., My Cindy doesn't catch many wild things anymore. She does love birds especially baby ones. That grosses me out. Thanks for the visits to my page. Sara
