Cat gifts

This happened yesterday and I thought it was just too funny not to share:

Next to Starbuck's paddock and stall I have one of those resin garden trunks to keep stuff in (bran mash, first aid kit, cat food, halters and lead ropes, etc...) where several of the barn kitties hang out, waiting for me to dispense said cat food to them.  So yesterday when I got to my trunk I noticed something small and grey in front of it which upon closer inspection turned out to be a dead rat.  I was just grabbing a shovel in disgust to throw it away when up trotted Tigretón (the little yellow barn cat), sat down right next to the dead rat, pawed at it a little and then looked up at me all proud of himself.

I guess that's just his way of chipping in for groceries ;)

Thanks! Yeah, I was pretty grossed out too :S I certainly hope he doesn't feel the need to contribute too often...
