New Friend [May. 8th, 2016|10:08 am]
Tony Grist
Marlowe is moving up in the world. Before yesterday all he'd ever brought home were shrews. But yesterday I cornered his latest friend behind the TV and it turned out to be a field vole- and voles are bigger and fatter than shrews. He didn't seem to have done it any serious damage- so I bundled it up in a shawl and released it into the long grass.

Our cats used to love voles. They loved to eat them. They ate mice too, but unfortunately mouse often upset their tummies so I'd find regurgitated mouse remains under the kitchen table. Voles agreed with their digestions much better.

They never ate shrews. I presume they smell/taste nasty. They never ate moles either, even though Fluffy was adept at catching and killing them.

I've read that moles taste nasty. Maybe shrews do too.

Marlowe never seems to want to eat his friends- just play with them. Sometimes, if the game goes on long enough, they wind up dead.
