I got a gift this morning. From a cat.[More:] On the patio under the chair I usually sit on I found a mouse. Other than the broken neck it was pristine. I think it was most likely from Ginger although Wen could have done it.

An acknowledgement of your care and acceptance of you as the head of the pack.

You have really won them over and they obviously are fed well enough that it wasn't necessary food and could be gifted to you. Quite an accomplishment. It's a good difference you are making in this world.

Years ago we had a family reunion at my aunt and uncles farm. My two older cousins (I think I was ten or 11 at the time) and I got to stay in a tiny camper borrowed from a family friend. We left the door open, so some of the many farm cats could come and go as they pleased. I awoke one morning in my bunk, after my favorite cat had awakened me sometime in the night, to find a RAT only a foot from my head. Dead, of course. But wait! There's more! Under the pillow that I'd somehow shoved away from in my sleep, was a mouse!
My aunt assured me that I was that cat's favorite person, and I actually thought it was very cool. (My cousins never got any rodent gifts from their favorite cats, lol)
