I woke up at midnight to get a drink, walked out into my kitchen and there are two cats staring at the floor and making their little throaty meow noises. I had to go retrieve my glasses to see what they were doing. There on the floor was a June Bug spinning around, it had obviously been batted around by the cats for a bit.
It is funny how the cats will eat some bugs but others seem to be way off limits. I did not expect they would eat a June bug anyway.
Earlier in the evening I had found a little spider dangling from a web and called Tink out to the kitchen. "Tink get the bug!" and she came running. She had no interest in the spider. If it had been a fly though, she would have pursued it relentlessly.
Wonder what a cat's criteria is in choosing to eat or not eat a bug?
