Julie still works at his patrolling these days, although he doesn’t usually stay out too late. He doesn’t often catch anything in winter, but it wasn’t too long ago that he caught a rabbit. I am usually pretty careful to open the door just a little when he meows at it to be let in, just in case he has a mouthful of something or another.
In fact, a little while after that post I got a spam comment. It was one of the “This post has wonderful information and I look forward to doing the same thing myself” spam texts. I kept getting visions of the spammer catching and killing rabbits on his back step….
If Julius is ‘clean’ then he usually spends a few minutes grabbing some food and then cleaning up afterward.
He burns a lot of energy running around out there – he tends to power nap, and on warm days he often lies flat on the cooler tiles to shed body heat. I like how he is covering up his eyes against the light.
It is hard to see but Julius’ “button” spot is visible on his lower stomach – it is a white spot on his stomach by his back legs.
