Post-Jurassic: Now Prey

Captured this guy on the inside of our den’s sliding screen door.  He was about 8 inches long.  Our 2-yr-old cat, Logan, catches and brings home up to three of these a day.  He lets them loose for a bit, continues to chase them, and eventually kills and partially eats them.  Fortunately for some of these guys we are able to rescue and resettle them to a safer environment.  But our neighborhood is abundant with lizards and birds.  (He caught a pigeon today.  Feathers everywhere in my tool shop, where our cat’s access door is located.)  Such is the hunter side of our loving pet.
