|Her first day with me|
|Tiny Coraline, September 2014|
The sweetness didn't extend to non-humans - she was a mighty hunter - mostly mice and shrews, but at least once she caught a rat, and another time a pigeon which she managed to get in through the cat flap. An she did also catch other things - paper aeroplanes, christmas baubles and so on..
She even tried to teach me to hunt, bringing me mildly concussed shrews which she would drop in front of me, with an imperious call, and then back off and watch critically as attempted to trap them in a pint glass and release them back to the garden. I suppose from her perspective, the training was working, as I was getting better at catching them!
She was adventurous -
And so snuggling.
She was not above giving her brother Loki a slap when he went too far (which he often did, as he isn't very bright and can't take a hint) but they were snuggly too, and I think he is missing her.
She was hit by a car, crossing the road. The driver didn't stop.
Rest in peace, Sweetie.
