The evening kill

The cats need an outlet after being cooped up all day. They are very active before their evening meal and mildly active after. After a day of snoozing, it’s to be expected.

Here is Xylo the cat in ecstasy as he takes down a kill, before midnight.

I can feel his canines clamp into position and gently apply enough pressure to pin the hand but not enough to tear the skin.

He is skillful, this one.

The cats get drowsy midway through the night sometimes and then become active once again at dawn – by sitting on my chest, unblinkingly, and vocally demand for food.
