Our Guard Cat Gunther

A Handmaid News

Gunther keeps a wary eye out for all things interesting and moving outside the windows. Be it lizards, skinks, chipmunks, turtles, enemy squirrels, turkeys, deer, or bobcats he’s on watch for it. And he’s keeping up with his mouse trophies having recently added another one, although in a rather blasé manner to be found as a forgotten toy instead of presenting it formally to the Mother Prioress for approval and praise.

In the photo above, he observes our family of deer enjoying breakfast but refrained from joining their repast of greenery. Why? It wasn’t catnip.
