This is not the reason we feed so many critters around here!
My neighbor's cat Diana, the same love-a-muffin in post #9132, is seen here giving a chipmunk a real hard time.
At times, the chipmunk was gripped in Diana's mouth and I was chasing the two of them to try to stop it.
I was able to break up this fight, and the chipmunk was able to run away.
It is telling that the first inclination was to gab a camera, but I am also happy to have put that down and stopped the fight.
(I once resuscitated a half-drowned mouse, but that is a story for another thread)
There are other images in this sequence on Flickr, and none of them are gory.
(Lots of cute chipmunk photos in my Flickr "Animals" album as well)
To cats, a chipmunk is a mouse with racing stripes. My two bring them alive into the workshop for entertainment, where they survive for a couple weeks, living off cat food and drinking from the water dish. I put a live trap on top of my bead blast cabinet to try to catch them, to no avail. Then I noticed a hole chewed in the sleeve where you put your arms into the cabinet. Grrrr.
