You have a healthy kitten when....

You know she's healthy when:
 - the foot long, dead snake appears in your house for the 3rd time... It must have been found and then carried around the outside of the house and over the fence, through the catdoor... multiple times
- along with a collection of dead or almost dead, half eaten grasshoppers randomly distributed throughout the house...

Is this a sign of love?
Does this mean, when she is bigger, it will be dead birds and rodents?:

What a great hunter you have!

I hear you worked in Antarctica. Chris and I want to go someday, as tourists or scientists. Can you tell us about it?

Snakes, wow! It's mainly been dead insects at my house- lots of caterpillars. And then the occasional dead bird (or parts thereof). Once they even brought in a dessicated squirrel, and put it right in my path so I'd be sure to see it. :)

From what I've read, yes, it's a sign of love and appreciation, an attempt for the kitty to also contribute to the household. Sounds like your kitty is very happy indeed!

I would have freaked out too! One time my CoCo woke me up in the middle of the night so I could accept her offering of a dead bird. Thankfully it was intact; I don't think she killed it herself, just found it dead.

Hey, Troy is coming into town tomorrow & we're hitting the Lichtenstein exhibit at AMOA on Sunday. I forwarded him your email for barnraising and he might show up & help!

It is possible it may get to birds and rodents. Back home in california Our kitty would only pring us the " Best parts" of hers and that was gross wen it was animals as big as Oposums.

Yes, it does.

Our Mighty Hunter, Joxer, used to bring us SOO many gifties, whole things and part of things, when we were in CA, and he is still doing it here. Well, we don't worry about problems with rats!
The rodents I didn't mind, the birds... ya...

You are so loved!

A few nights ago, my dog brought me a rat. It was hard to get over the repulsion and praise her for being such a good little hunter. I mean, who wants to love on their pet and get licked when she just killed a rat?
