Wordless Wednesday – Pounce

Legend - Pounce

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Quote Of The Day
A cat is not merely diverted by everything that moves,
But is convinced that all nature is occupied exclusively
With catering to (his) diversion.
François Auguste Paradis De Moncrif,
As quoted in Agnes Repplier’s The Fireside Sphinx


There are few things more captivating than watching a cat hunt.
Have you ever noticed how keenly a cat concentrates on his prey?
He crouches silently, patiently,
Waiting for the perfect moment to pounce.

Here’s to Legend, the Mighty Hunter.
Happy Wordless Wednesday!

    I always loved how my cat, when he was still alive, was such a great hunter. I love seeing your cats each week. Reminds me of my loving Charlie.

    We had a trip to the Royal Perth show this week and thoroughly enjoyed the cats on show. My girls have their eye on a ragdoll cat and are rather determined we should finally get a pet (well apart from the fish in our pond).

    Love the kitty’s philosophy….. reminds me of my hubby sometimes…..haha!

  14. Colonialst says:

    My ‘Rabbits!’ had to be today, because Wednesday isn’t the 1st – it was up before you opened for business!

  15. Karly says:

    My cat Mr. Bingley was an excellent hunter. He would always bring back birds or lizards to feed Spaz and her kittens. I once watched a special about how cats are crazy vicious hunters. There were little cameras attached to collars around outdoor cats’ necks and it was really cool to see how they hunted!

  16. I’ve always been amazed how patient cats can be when stalking!

  17. Hmmm…what is Legend about to pounce upon? 🙂
    Thanks for hosting! Have a wonderful rest of the week.

    I just can’t get over how much Legend looks like my kitty! As always, thanks for hosting and have a great week! =)

  19. Teresa says:

    I love the look in a cat’s eyes when it’s getting ready to pounce!

    Legend certainly had his sights on something and I have no doubt he got it! Great shot! Thanks for hosting.

  21. Kristin says:

    So cute. Love the way cat’s look when they get playful or start stalking. They are just so serious about it!

    I’m so excited, we’re going to be getting one of our cats from a friend who has been fostering them until we were able to get our own place! So excited to have her at Thanksgiving!

    He does look well occupied.

  29. Love that intent look on his face!

    Love the intent, focused look! The best cat hunter I ever had was my female siamese Baby. She hunted and killed birds, lizards, snakes…and yes, even a few squirrels in her lifetime. She was amazing to watch.

    As a kitty, I can say that there are few things more fun than the thrill of the hunt!

  33. adinparadise says:

    A “Mighty Hunter” indeed. Great photo of Legend. 🙂

  34. Kitty looks ready! Get it kitty!

  35. Miley says:

    Oh, we love watching when our kitty has something on her radar!! Following from the blog hop!!

  36. Now, what kept him occupied there!

  37. We agree! Our Allie scents the hunt in our photo today as well! Way to go Legend!

  38. Nailah Bone says:

    Lovely picture! 🙂 I love how focused your kitty looks!

  39. Aida says:

    My cat is attacking my feet as I type this comment…he is quite the pouncer 🙂

    Cats are super funny. I use to love to watch ours as she got ready to pounce on something real or imaginary. Thanks for hosting the WW hop!

  41. Mary Denman says:

    Love the quote! I totally agree. Cats see the world as theirs to control and enjoy!

    Have a great day!

  42. Glad to see the comment box is back! My Momma had a tabby named Hobie who would hide around corners and pounce at legs as they went by – just as if they were prey.

  43. Sadie says:

    That’s quite the look of concentration!

  44. Thanks for hosting Create with Joy!! We so enjoy your site!!
    Your TX furiends,
