When a Cat Leaves You Dead “Gifts”

Cats bearing gifts mean they love you.

Cats bearing gifts mean they love you.

Yesterday evening my husband came home and found a dead rabbit on our doorsteps.  From a bush he heard meowing and rustling.

It’s a belief that cats leave “presents” to those they like.

I am so happy that I wasn’t the one who made the “discovery”.  I would have screamed non-stop and ran away if I found the rabbit.   Paranoia also would have fill my mind because there is an old wives tale that says if you find a dead rabbit you will become pregnant or you are pregnant!  I love my two kids and can not imagine another one coming our way!

The neighborhood cat needs to leave us alone!
