Hunting Season Begins

Ahh spring.  The flowers are blooming, the days are bright and sunny, and I'm now afraid to walk out of my bedroom without shoes on.  So far today I've been treated to a chewed up dead bird, a chewed up dead mouse, and a chewed up live snake.  My mighty hunters are proud of their prowess, but squishy furry things between the toes are very disconcerting at 2 AM.
