I’m a bit worried.
I think Ollie might be turning into a crazed killer. To look at him now, you wouldn’t think so.
He has always been against any sort of violence towards anybody, let alone our immediate neighbours. I certainly wouldn’t dream of chasing any of the neighbourhood cats, unless they were upsetting Ollie or Misha, but actually wanting to kill something is completely abhorrent to me.
Anyway, I went for a walk yesterday and saw Ollie. He was so engrossed in what he was doing he didn’t even hear me coming. When he finally did manage to look up, licking his lips, I was horrified to see that he was eating a decapitated vole. I don’t want to think about where its head might have gone.
Yes, I know, Ollie is a cat and cats chase mice, but you need to understand that this is someone who has been a member of Felines for Peace and Justice since his second booster vaccination, so rodent slaughter is totally out of character. I didn’t think he could actually catch anything, let alone eat it and he’s already eating four sachets a day at home anyway. Perhaps he is going through some sort of feline mid-life crisis?
Whatever his problem is I will be keeping a very close eye on him from now on.
