I know this is a dog blog, but I shot this video and I’ve been trying to figure out a time to share it. It seems I’ve had a lot to write about in the almost two weeks since I shot the video.
I was going to link it up to the Tasty Tuesday blog hop and then I figured well……it wasn’t actually tasteFUL.
Let me set the scene.
I had gone home on my lunch to get a quick walk in with the dogs. As I was backing out of the driveway I happened to see the neighbor’s cat just a couple of houses up. The cat appeared to be playing with something. At first I thought it was a leaf, but I quickly realized it was not. I thought it might be a mouse.
I’ve never seen a cat CATCH a mouse before, so I was intrigued. I turned around and started inching my way up the street.
This disturbed the cat, and caused him to stop and regard me suspiciously. I got as close as as could without scaring the cat off. Even still, the cat would stop every so often and stare at me.
I pulled my cell phone out of my purse and sat there with it trained on the cat, at this point I still had no idea what the cat was chasing, until it ran directly at my driver’s door and I realized it was a chipmunk.
The little bobble at the end is when I turned around and said, “Oh shit, where’d they go?” I was afraid they were under the car and I would run over them as I left. As it turned out, they weren’t.
And yes, the cat did catch the chipmunk.
Sorry for the blurry photo, the camera in my cell phone is supposed to be better than my point and shoot, but I don’t agree.
