Purrs, it’s Hermione. I hope you are all staying safe from that bad bug out there. I know it’s one that my brother, Stripey, and I can’t catch or at least I hope not. We’d much rather catch bugs of the insect and not the virus variety. In fact, we recently caught a fly in our house. Here are some photos of our hunt that ends with a video of us after we’ve got it.
I was the one who started the hunt. I saw something flying outside the window.
I pawed my way slowly across the windowsill to check it out.
Then I hid myself behind the curtain.
Unfortunately, I discovered the bug was outside the window, so I gave up the hunt. However, my brother Harry, because he’s a copy cat, climbed up on the window after I left and also hid behind the curtain.
Then an odd thing happened. There actually was a bug in the house. It was on our other window. We both saw it at the same time and raced there. To give Harry credit, I will say that we both caught the fly, but everyone knows female cats are the better hunters.
After I helped him catch the fly, Harry had the nerve to play with it like it was all his. I was so mad that I punched him with my paw and was finally able to get a taste of my prey.
That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. Do your kitties catch bugs in your house? It’s great exercise and hones our hunting skills. Spring is the purrfect time for bug catching.
Until next time, it’s Hermione signing off. Be safe, and watch out for those bugs.
