    Sure looks good to me.

    Next somebody will be telling me it is a road kill.

    Still looks good though.

    My one-quarter Maine Coon caught, killed, and ate a field mouse today.

    He was very happy about some fresh meat finally.

    The winter snows had covered the field across the street where he usually hunts.

    There are no squirrels around here.

    Where we lived before there were lots of tree squirrels and he would wait all day quietly and still until one would come down from a tree and then he would grab and eat it. PATROLLING20.JPG

    Yes they are. Ate them all the time growing up. Not sure why that's a waste though...

    Because that thing would be like eating your wallet. Squirrel doesn't have any fat in it so the meat needs to be prepared properly. Straight off the bone is not the way in my experience.

    Some truth to that, but I've had them cooked many ways and on the bone can be great. True a nice slow cooked stew is probably best.
