    my cats only bring me livestock, the usual mice, voles,birds, rabbits, halfarabbits and one baby possum, dead.
    since the possum was dead i picked it up by the tail and put it in the trash can with a cover. the next day dh and i were cleaning up the dog yard and he went to put some trash in the can and "haaaaaaaaaaaaaaah' this loud hissing breathing dragon noise greeted him! the little possum was 'playing possum'. we ended up loading the can with the cover strapped on and in the backseat of the open mustang convertible to the closest park, 10 mi away. then the silly thing didn't want to leave the can!
    we ended up dumping the can and he ran into the woods. you know, they may look cute when they're hanging on to mom, but in person, they're fugly!

    Diamonds are a girl's best friend, you know! She looks like she likes the bling.

    Oh Yeah she does!! Some day we'll find her stash full of dimes, nickles, my rings, & whatever else she liked & could fit in her mouth. She couldn't seem to carry quarters. We'd find 'em where she would have dropped 'em. Her name is blue (we named her for the color of her collar) but we sometimes call her A-bu (sp?) for the monkey on the movie Aladdin.

    The closest thing to that my cat did was to bring home her live animals she hunted, mice, birds for dinner or when she trained her kittens to hunt. Yuck.

    I had a cat that brought home white rabbits and eat them. I would find a foot or just fur. I live in town in a regular subdivision. Someone most of been raising them. But you would think they would notice 10 or 15 missing rabbits.

    Once we had a porcupine in the yard, we couldn't leave it there because of the cats and dogs, my dogs hated them. My husband had to lasso it and put in the back of the pickup. I rode in the back with it to try to keep it from climbing out. We hauled up into the woods and let it go. I kinda felt like Marlin Perkins on Wild Kingdom. Oh what we do for our pets!

    He used a rope and pole and pulled the porcupine onto a piece of plywood and up into the bed of the pickup. This why I don't want them around my animals.

    My cat used to catch bunnies and bring them home. At the time, I ran a home daycare and I had just opened the door to let a parent in when my cat came running in from outside with an almost decapitated bunny in his mouth. He dumped it right in front of the parent's feet. She jumped back outside and started screaming. I calmly rolled up my front rug with the dead bunny on it and excused myself for a minute to go dispose of it in the back trashcan. When I came back, she had loaded up her kid and was driving away. She called me later and told me she no longer needed my services. I can't say I blamed her and I didn't charge her for not giving two weeks' notice. Ironically, I was getting ready to give her a two weeks notice because her three year old daughter had a mean streak and would pull on my cats' tails all the time.

    That is Great! My cat would bring me birds and rats. I would have much rather had peperoni. Maybe your cat is Italian. LOL

    OUCHIE!!!! Your dog looks a lot like one of our old dogs who just couldn't say "No!" to porcupine. The dog always came out with the short end of the stick. He was a great dog though.

    We had to take them to the vet, naturally it happened on a sat. when the vet was closed but they did open for us. They had to put the dogs to sleep to take them out. This happened twice each time they were more determined to kill it. Our little siberian only got a few on her nose.

    Our Husky finally stopped after a very expensive vet visit with a 2 night stay included b/c he had so many quills down his throat. Oh yeah, vet and anesthesia every single time.
