The Mighty Huntress

It's always funny how much influence Buzz had on Jet, even though they really didn't get to spend much time together. The other day (it was yesterday for me, but since it's already 1:30am I guess it was the other day) Jet showed off her hunting prowess.

As I heard it there was "something" sitting on the ramp. Jet was let out and pounced on it and took off around the house, refusing to give it up. Of course I was summoned to take care of it. By the time I got to the back of the house she had already dropped "it", but was still somewhat interested in it. I had to pick her up and carry her inside, but not before identifying the mystery toy. It was a rat. HUGE. I came in to grab something to . . . . grab it with and told Aaron to come look. Of course he wanted to be the man and pick it up himself and I let him. ^_^ This thing barely fit into his hand. Huge. Anyways, Aaron determined from the lack of scratches on Jet and the lack of marks on the rat and the sheer amount of blood that poured from the poor rat's ear that she likely crushed it's skull before it knew what was going on.

So even though I'm not happy she killed an animal, I'm glad it didn't suffer. Also, I'm amazed at how big those things are getting since we found the dead snake. I saw one in the kitchen a few weeks back, but it wasn't near that size. Funny that Aaron was the one to pick it up on his birthday. Almost like a present. ^_^

So the hunter legacy lives on. That and the way Jet stretches like a cat. Because nothing ever really dies. Just transmutes.
