sweet zombie jesus

Note to my feline companions

Dear Cats,

Thank you for delivering freshly-caught rodents to our doorstep. Gee, that's sweet, and it shows what valuable hunters you are. Also, I never knew that it only took a swarm of about a dozen flies to make that buzzing noise you hear in the horror movies. Good to know. But I wonder if I could persuade you to drop them off behind the garage, maybe down the hill and into the woods a bit? That way they'll keep longer, in the shade. They tend to bloat up in the sun there by the front door. That would be great.

Thanks!
Nayad

PS - Oh, and I'd love it if you left their heads on their bodies, just to keep things tidy. xoxo
