Typhoon’s Latest Catch

Our Little Prince is well known for his ability to out-run and out-maneuver foolish rabbits in the yard, but his latest catch was surprising.

Enjoying the spoils of a good hunt.

Typhoon’s hunting skills are astounding. Any rabbit dumb enough to sneak into the confines of Sibe Quentin will discover him hot on their heels, twisting and turning as fast as they can zig and zag. And, more often than not, he can outrun his prey and take it down. So when Hu-Dad glanced out the window and saw His Haughtiness happily munching away on something in the far corner of the yard, visions of taking the grisly prize away popped up. But, on closer inspection,…

Hear me roar as I tell everyone to stay away from my latest catch. It's mine. All mine!

With all of our rain and freezing temperatures, some large blocks of ice had formed. Typhoon acquired them and scattered them around the yard with the help of an accomplice. So, yes, that is Typhoon chewing on a giant chunk of ice and protecting it like the best prize ever.

And I have two!
And I have two!
