How does the universe respond

when you send out a general broadcast

or telepathic "call"?

 

Ad for Feline Hunter

Last October, 2015, Hattie, the semi-feral resident feline of my back yard, opted to leave the physical plane.

HattieShe was over 16 years old and had a lump on her side.  She consciously decided to leave, found a predator to assist her, and disappeared.

Hattie was an amazing hunter and did a fantastic job keeping rodents away.  She was so good at it that I think I took it for granted.

This winter/spring 2016, my two youngest cats, Starlight and Melissa, have been having their first experiences mousing successfully inside my house.

STARLIGHT and MELISSA

Starlight and Melissa

MOUSE "ON THE CEILING"

First the two youngsters, Starlight and Melissa,  cornered an adult field mouse.  [See post, "Mouse on the Ceiling?"]  That mouse eventually got away inside the house.

STARLIGHT'S FIRST MOUSE

Then Starlight caught her first mouse and brought it downstairs in her mouth with Melissa close by her side every step of the way.

She and Melissa played with it until I finally caught it in a plastic container and tossed it outside with this message:  "If you're smart, you won't come back."

MELISSA'S FIRST MOUSE

More recently, Melissa, who is under a year old by 1 day as I write this, all on her own caught a baby mouse upstairs.  She brought it downstairs to show off.

Melissa ran around growling while shouting, telepathically, "I did it!  It's mine!" at the top of her telepathic voice.

So ... great news ...

My young cats are proving their hunting skills.

NOT so great news ...

I have field mice in the house.

My mind contemplates this question ...

When did I last have mice in the house?

Answer ...

Before Hattie moved into the back yard,

which was more than 8 years ago.

This is not a coincidence!

Probable conclusion ...

Hattie must have kept the field mice out.

Possible solution ...

I need another backyard resident cat.

Field mice can do a great deal of damage inside the walls of a house.

I believe in the preditor-prey relationship for creating balance.

If you want to listen to an excellent talk on this subject, check out Betty Lewis's talk, I Am You:  The Predator-Prey Relationship.  [You'll have to log into the site to listen.  Membership is free.]

So ...

I asked Hattie to send us someone whom she feels is qualified to do the job.

She's agreed.

AND...

I am sending out a"telepathic broadcast" of a job description for a cat who wants to live outside, have a "home" with food and shelter, and is an excellent hunter.

Probably ought to put out some food to make sure the welcome mat is truly welcoming.

There are quite a few feral and semi-feral cats in the neighborhood.

I wonder who will show up?
