12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Cat & Mouse

My cat named Cookie brought this poor little mouse into my bedroom. Perhaps as a gift to me, she decided to present the live mouse before killing it. Trying to save the little victim, I went to take the rodent from her grip but instead dropped it squeamishly. It scurried under my dresser, where Cookie spent over an hour stalking this fearful creature. As you can imagine, the mouse's fate was doomed.
