Dear Mystery Friend

Dear Mystery Friend

Thank you so much for the present you left me this morning. It was incredibly thoughtful of you. Imagine my delight whilst having my usual morning shuffle down the lawn to discover half a fresh rabbit waiting for me!

I don't mind in the least that you had the head, and indeed, most of the flesh too. I found more than enough interest in the skin, bone and remaining flesh to pass the time most happily.

Unfortunately Dad spotted me hurling said corpse around the lawn, and imprisoned me. As I am too big to fit through the cat flap any more, I could only watch in disbelief as he shoveled it up and took it away. Afterwards I did go and and perform a thorough search for any other bits, but to no avail.

By the way, was it you that left the really smelly decaying rabbit just the other side of the fence a few weeks ago? I did a good job of digging under the fence to get to that, but again I was thwarted by Dad. So thank you for leaving it somewhere instantly accessible this time.

Why don't you stop one day for a play? I'm sure we would get on really well.


Dear fox

I suppose you think that was funny? Actually, it was gross.

We endure you catching chickens from the free-range chicken farm down the road and using our orchard as a dining table. You even buried an egg in the veg patch once. And we're thankful that you seem to have got over your obsession with repeatedly pooing in the same place outside the outhouses.

OK, we did find it funny the time you stole the teletubbies ball from the little girl down the road and left it on our lawn. Did you know they were watching you at 3am as you played football with it round their garden before you brought it to us?

But this rabbit thing has got to stop. Mojo does not need encouragement. She is already Mistress of the Forbidden Snack and, frankly, once she's rolled in dead things she stinks.

best regards
Mojo's mum


  1. Score! A dead rabbit...Mojo, you are the luckiest! Send your mystery friend to my house please.


  2. OMD that is just the funniest!!! so need to keep that fox as a friend. Ignore your Mum!

    Lots of Licks, Ruby

  3. LOL, that's hilarious! We love that pic of your head out the door. :)

  4. Drat! Hoomans are always ruining our fun and delicious treats!
    You need to gnaw that cat door a little bit larger, Mojo!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  5. Good work Mojo! You are getting in touch with your wild side. Pooh on your mom for discouraging the fox. Nothings wrong with playing with nature, even if it's dead and chewed up. He he!!

    Your pal,

  6. Hi, Mojo
    Sure that door is too small for you now! We can help you to make it bigger!!
    Sure that fox is a good friend of you! I just can imagine you playing with him!
    Have a good night

  7. I agree, mum is a spoilsport! We had a hedgehog (live) in our garden the other night, but surprisingly, I wasn't too tempted to roll on him!

    Are you going to grooming on Sunday?

    Toodle pip,
    Harry x

  8. I knew fox terriers were cool, but I guess foxes aren't so bad either! Hope you get more presents!

    Your friend, Lenny

  9. Mumsie looks nauseated....You are definitely and with enthusiasm invited to the poker pawty friday nite...if u can find the other half of the wabbit!


  10. Oh dear Mojo, we don't think our pinkie D could handle finding a dead rabbit in our yard. We'd love it though. Shame your dad spoilt your fun.

    Hugs and tail wags
    Noah, Willow, Tess and Lucy

  11. Mojo, better luck next time.
    Try and sneak out when it is dark to see if your friend has left any tasty goodies for you and then go and hide them under a bush so they cannot be seen by your Mum and Dad.

  12. Great post Mojo and mum! Very clever. I wish we had a fox in our neighbourhood. Those darn cats never leave anything good.


  13. Pee Ess

    Love the photo of your head coming through the kitty door!

    Goober love,

  14. Hey, Mojo!

    OK. I don't know what happened to the first comment I left you, but I was telling you that I think your mystery fox is offering you the paw of everlasting friendship! He even opened the wrapping for you on that rabbit!

    Can't believe your parents had to hog said rabbit all to themselves. "Throwing it away..." a *likely* story. (Check their stew pot tonight & see what's inside).

    Keep us posted on your buddy.

    Goober love,

  15. oh Mojo! You're sooo lucky!! (stoopid dad for taking the rabbit away!)

    But from what I really don't want to meet your mystery play safe over there!



  16. I agree with Sophie - wish we had a fox. The cats are useless!
    - Charlie

  17. I think the fox must like you, leaving annonymous gifts like that!
