Gift of Green Bean

Here's a wierd story. Last night after we got back from the fireworks, I was settled in bed reading when I heard Maggie squawk. She's a six year old 10 pound medium hair blue and white I adopted from Cat Welfare and she is the love of my life.

Normally when she mews like that with a mouthful, it is a baby rabbit that she shoves through the cat door and then gently brings to me while the rabbit is screaming. The rabbit is unharmed with just a little cat spit on the back of its neck. I was expecting the worst.

She brought me a green bean. It was an immature bean, still not ripe enough to harvest. It looked like something from a neighbor's garden. She has never brought me vegetables before. Nipper brought me a piece of fried chicken, but other than that, it's mousies, chipmunks, rabbits etc. I told her she was a good girl. After a while, she took the bean and went somewhere else, probably to give it to my 16 year old daughter. Oh yeah, Kelly tells me it's on her nightstand.

Maybe she's trying to tell you to grow FOOD!

RE: Gift of Green Bean

How cute! I would much rather have a green bean! One night a cat we used to have snuck in the door with a baby rabbit when my husband went out to go to work. I was awakened by its scream. Talk about freaking out! I found her under my desk with it. It didn't make it. I love cats but that's one of the reasons that I won't get another one. They can't fight their instincts to hunt and I really like my birds and rabbits. I can't imagine having a cat door and having them bring whatever they catch into the house! I can picture one bringing a snake in and placing it on my bed saying, "Look at me mom! Aren't you proud?"

RE: Gift of Green Bean

She's decided to become a vegetarian?

She's "going green"?

She's been seeing a PETA person behind your back?

Too cute!


RE: Gift of Green Bean

That's funny!
Cats are such a trip.
(Oh I hate when the baby rabbit seasons arrive. It's all I can do not to cry. Sometimes, I wind up chasing the rabbit around the house trying to get to it before one of the animals do. Between four cats and a dog, that's really a chore!)
--maybe that greenbean is special? maybe there's special seeds inside it she knows her mamma might like... :-)
