On the evening of 4 June 2009, just like any other days, I went down to feed the cats. I always feed the kittens at the TNB area where I put a container and replace its water every day for their consummation.
Anyway, only Sweetie and Snowie showed up that evening. Nevertheless, I fed both of them and at the same time in a lookout for Greyie. Half an hour had passed. There was still no sign of Greyie. Since both Sweetie and Snowie were done eating, I decided to leave. As I was about to, I saw him carrying something in his mouth walking very cautiously along the bushes.
As he approached the TNB area, I was horrified to see him carrying a gecko in his mouth, and was pretty much relieved once I realized it was a dead gecko.
He was tossing and throwing the dead gecko in the air with his mouth as well as nabbing and lifting it with his little front paws. He was so engrossed that nothing, not even my biscuits could make him stopped playing with his new found toy. Therefore, together with his siblings, we decided to watch him play.
All of a sudden, he stopped playing, walked to the container and started nibbling at the biscuits. He must have either got hungry or bored with his new found toy. Snowie who had been eyeing the dead gecko from the beginning decided to take over the fun while Sweetie looked on and waited anxiously for his turn. It would be a shame not to share such a good fun toy, wouldn’t it?
