Zero will be turning 17 next month and she has had this weird habit for as long as I can remember... She's actually doing it now as I type.
Zero is obsessed with what we call her "mouse-babies."
She roams around the house, carrying one in her mouth, and making these god-awful yowling sounds. It's pretty frightening if you don't know what she's doing. She has creeped out many house guests...
Zero with 2 "mouse-babies" - and the infamous platypus egg
All hours of the day & night (talk about creepy!) she would do this. But then along came Stout...
And he ate most of her "mouse-babies."
So she had to improvise. First it was small dog toys. We catch her carrying around that egg a lot (yes, it came inside a platypus toy).
But now it seems that she has moved on to bigger prey:
John filmed this the other night. That bunny is as big as she is!
I left the yowling on the end of the video for everyone's listening pleasure :)
Does anyone know why she does this?
