Wood vole

Post by Theroe » Wed Oct 03, 2018 9:19 am

Last night, my cat brought me home a prize: a woodland vole. This is a first, as the usual catch is field mice, moles and sparrows. Unfortunately, she almost bit the head off, as is her usual m.o. But I skinned it out and rubbed it down with some Borax - it is quite nice material.

Looks very nice, Dana. Very soft and a range of colors.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

Nice post Dana, thanks for sharing. We haven't seen this type of post since Jeff was around. :D

It's nice to have a partner that understands your hobbies. :D
