Usually it is customary to give the Birthday-ee a gift. However, they have been leaving some for me, apparantly.
T'mow is the IttyBittie's Birthday. (I KNOW! ) I promise to update their very own thread.
I have been finding, daily, these lovely... things.
I actually ended up bringing one into the vet with Malarkey last week, because, although I *believed* them to be gizzards, they could've been related to his issues, since they started appearing, one a day, two days before I brought him in.
Shape & size of a very large kidney bean. Sort of metallic greenish in colour. Filled with... I dunno, and I haven't looked.
Left on a VERY regular basis for me for just over a week now.
Am I to assume that one or more of the Itties has taken to snaking on birds as well as moles & meeces? (as opposed to meeses, which are far too large for even the bravest Itty to take down... )
They are fierce, proud hunters. I've *known* of two birds. Which does not make me happy, but then, I still have to be proud of their prowess, and try not to be sad that one was a baby goldfinch They ARE doing their jobs well, afterall.
Are they brining in and *leaving* these... bits... or are they... *re-*lieving them?
All are left when I'm either asleep (odd, as yakking and gacking usually wake me... ) or at work.
Do I need to worry? Other than deworming regularly?
Should I be honored that such gifts are left for me?
I'm really NOT a cat person, contrary to the last year's evidence.
