Wood Duckling?

ImageMy cat Parsley has taken up hunting since we moved here. Normally she gets little birds and eats them. Sometimes she brings me gifts. One day she brought me a little collared dove, and once some baby snakes. All were unfortunately too injured to be released.

But today she outdid herself. I heard her calling me from the basement and when I went down I noticed she had something huge (she’s not a very big cat). Upon closer inspection… A duckling!

The duckling was totally intact with no injuries. It looks like at least a week old and seems to resemble a Wood Duck duckling. So in other words, today Parsley brought me the most beautiful duck in North America. What a great present!


I asked her to get me another one, so far she hasn’t complied
