Pearli's Pickles – IV

Pearli is a prodigious huntress.  It’s a fact and it’s what felines do.  I don’t enjoy it and, in her defence, if the prey is edible, she eats it.  Even if she leaves evidence for the Cat’s Parents to clean up.

Only to find Big Bad Baby Mole.
Oh, Mum, what big teeth he has!  And he’s shouting at me!
SAM_2415Ah, yes, but what Pearli didn’t spy were Big Bad Baby Mole’s big feet.  As she watched, Bad, Bad Mole dug his way out of trouble!
