It's Little Girl day here on RockyCat!

Okay, okay, I know this photo is about as grainy as that Bigfoot video, but I think you can get the gist of it:

That's Little Girl, all crouched down, stalking the wily rabbit who is in the neighbor's ditch.

Now, this is all a big show, because Little Girl knows that the rabbit, which is approximately the same size as she is, could kick her butt if she actually caught it.

So she stalks the rabbit, and makes her final mad dash, but then pulls up short as the rabbit bunny-hops away with no particular urgency.

And they do this with great frequency. It is, evidently, a favorite game of both of them.

I love this. I think cats are aware of the difference between play and real stalking. My cats would go out and hunt down moles and mice, yet they still seemed fascinated by string. It's like how we play sports.

It's like how cats "fight", with much yowling and howling and floofing of fur, but nobody ever gets hurt. It's all a big show.
