So, we had a bit of excitement this morning.
A little back story: We have this umbrella on our deck that you can fold down, and there has apparently been a bat living in it. Nick found that out this weekend, so he’s left the umbrella up the past couple of days to keep it from nesting in there again.
I went out about 10 minutes ago to feed Roxy and saw some nasty looking throwup on the deck (sorry for that this early in the morning!). Normally, if Roxy gets sick, it’s whole pieces of her food from eating too fast, but I had never seen anything like this. I fed her and went back inside to tell Nick.
When he came out and looked at it…..he saw a wing a little farther away.
Our cat is a killer! That is nuts.
She is not tiny or very fast, so I’m not sure how she could have caught a bat! I just can’t believe it! She’s caught birds before, but even that is hard to believe when looking at her. I wonder if she recruited one of the other cats around here to help her….
Of course, I’m glad I had already put my breakfast together after seeing that this morning.
Last night, I mixed up a breakfast cookie:
- 1/2 cup oats
- pinch salt
- 2-3 spoonfuls applesauce
- 1 Tbsp dark chocolate dreams pb
I mixed that up in a bowl, spread it on a plate, and let it set in the fridge overnight.
Then this morning, I topped it with the last 2 Tbsp or so of ricotta, a pinch of unsweetened coconut, strawberries, and raspberries.
I think I’ve actually been craving these cold breakfasts lately, which is strange because it’s not even that hot here! But I really missed this yesterday.
Do you have any crazy pet stories?
