Kill it, Whisper

Mr. Personality, aka Whisper, has developed a few games to play in and around the barn. Ambush is particularly fun for our little hunter. He likes to hide in the horses’ feed troughs and wait for Zip or Squeaky to walk by.

One tiny step closer, and I'll have her.

When either gets close enough he springs out, landing on top of them, and hilarity ensues. Whisper particularly likes to get Zip this way, maybe because she is closer to his size.

Zip: "I am only aware of your existence so that I can ignore you."

Obviously, his other favorite game is “Kill it, Whisper.” This is actually Mom’s game, I suppose. Whenever she sees him playing with a mouse or vole, she yells, “KILL IT WHISPER!” and then goes about her business. At some point, she’ll go to the grain room (cat house), maybe to fill up a water bowl, and in the sink she will find a dead rodent. Practically gift wrapped. Then Whisper gets a treat.

To be fair, Mom taught the mini-poodle to play the same game with Dad’s pajamas. She “kills them” for him before he puts them on.

House full of fluffy little murderers, that’s what we’ve got!

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
