Fierce Girl

That sweet little Midge turns fierce when we get out the feather wand.    Once her jaws lock onto that bird, it's not easy getting her to let go.   She gets all growly, her ears flatten,  toes are clenched, and if any of her siblings come too close, paws bat them away.

Thankfully, when we do manage it from  pry it from her grip, she instantly returns to her sweet self.

  3. Ah, yes. The adorable, adorbale predator comes out of her fuzzy shell. MINE. MY KILL. :-) Is there anything cuter than a little kitten hunter? Love, Darin.

  5. That is hilarious- and a good sign that hunting makes perfect sense to her. I look forward to some video.

  13. Oh, I just love the first time a kitten makes a "kill" and gets all growly and possessive! There is nothing funnier than watching a normally silly kitten turn fierce hunter, except maybe watching the faces of her shocked siblings!

  18. I had a pistol of a torbie for close to 16 years. These semi-redheads can be fiery but are very loving and possessive. She too had big ears, even as an adult, but this little one's are extraordinary -- and SO cute.

  19. Oh goodness. She was my favourite kitten before, and those EARS have cemented her in that place. THE EARS!!! I can't even deal with them (if I lived anywhere close to Tacoma I'd be trying to find a way to smuggle her out in my coat pockets, for real.)

  20. Little 'mothers' are the most fierce! They'll need to provide for their 'babies'.

  21. Our Fizz had the same reaction to the feather wand when he was a kitten. Love the determined kitten faces!
