Ahh, the domestic cat – aka ‘Felis Catus’ whose hunting skills have been honed to perfection after years of evolution. It’s still possible to see this basic instinct in today’s cats that was so evident in their distant relation – the sabre tooth tiger and today’s lions and tigers.
Picture the scene – a dark night in Kettering and Biscuit and Bon-Bon are, as usual, on patrol in the garden, protecting us from intruders (see picture above). All of a sudden, Bon-Bon springs into life, having spotted ‘something’ in the undergrowth. After assessing the situation and identifying her prey – a frog – she accelerates in the opposite direction with the frog chasing her!!!!
Good to see that thousands of years of evolution haven’t gone to waste then! Bon-Bon obviously got out of the gene-pool when they were handing out the bit about stalking and trapping your prey.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
