DANTE ON THE HUNT!
Fin over at "Housecat Confidential" is hosting Hunt Week, this week. And what better participant than my Dante in his endless quest to nab the evil black squirrel!
It's a lovely sunny day, with just a light dusting of snow. There's a flake or two still falling from the sky. Dante's on the front porch keenly watching for any sign of those dark, dastardly introoders!
Quick as a flash, he was off the porch and around the tree, narrowly missing the little blackguard!
Thwarted for now, Dante retreats.
It's time to regroup (even though it's just him and not a group). Dante gathers his thoughts and renews his resolve.
Aha! The target is in sight once more. Dante hunkers down to the task of stalking his quarry.
Another rush at the little rapscallion only makes it flee back to the tree for safety.
Dante can only watch once more as squirrelly scales the heights of his sanctuary.
This is the reality of the hunt. To stalk, to advance and to retreat again until you have a better chance. There is always a next time. Dante has the true heart of a hunter. He will never give up. He's always watching for the right opportunity. One day, he'll have it!
He's watching you!
