The Demise of Mister Kadiddle Hopper

 Kitties!

Sweet Pea here.

Look what I caught last night! 
A Kadiddle Hopper!

He was tasty AND fun...he squirmed ever so delightfully betwixt my slavering jaws.

When I was done with Sir Kadiddle I ferried him out to the Catio for General Amusement purposes...

...and hopped up on the blue spool to enjoy the show.

Maui wasted no time to sample Mister Hopper's Crunchy goodness.
Mommy was all "Eeeeewwwww, GROSS!!!" during the chewing parts, but she kept on shooting.  
Mommy is a real trouper.

Maui moved the Kadiddle over to the other carpet for further fun and games.

He showed Scouty how to play.

Scouty gave Mister Hopper a left hook...

...followed by a right cross!
After that, Mister Kadiddle Hopper was, erm, "done".

Then Maui ate Mister Hopper, and he didn't foam!
He must have a cast-iron stomach to go along with his crazypants.
What a fun evening.
We all slept like logs after the excitement.

Happy Tuesday!

  2. Wow, none of the cat kids here have ever caught a grasshopper. I bet they would like that ... but Mom would probably take it away like the lizards they catch.

  3. I am SO envious! If my human ever caught me with one of those, she would make me let go of it and then she'd put it outside so I couldn't kill it! My human is so mean!!!

  4. The Human coverred her eyes and put her fingers in her ears and went la-la-la-la-la-la while I read this post and laffed and laffed. Mmmmmm, crunchy bugs!

  6. We are so so so jealous. That looks wonderful and we never get anything like that here. The photo with Sweet Pea grinning from ear to ear is just sheer bliss.

    Äiti wants to know if the grasshopper juices affect feline poop. She's just too nosey.

  11. one summer, we had too few bugs, and poor Willow had none to hunt. So I bought her a few crickets from the pet store. I felt terrible doing so, but she loved them so!

  12. the kitties here are impressed and jealous!

  15. Well if we HAD to go, we'd like a big important wake like you gave that hopper :-)

  16. Dinner and a show, how about that? Looks like the kittehs had much fun.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Bet that grasshopper didn't realise he was top of the bill and menu both at the same time !

  18. Wow! that's an impressive catch there Sweet Pea! Love this hoppy critter! We kitties want to join in the fun :)

  19. OMC! What fun for all of you. Mom would have been Ewwww with the crunching too.

    Tell your Mom ours says Thanks very much for sending the cross stitch from the auction. It is going to be a challenging one, but really pretty if she can complete it.

  22. Sweet Pea looks mighty pleased with herself and rightfully so! And it's so nice of her to share with her siblings.

  23. I has never seen a hopper. M said she hasn't seen any for quite a few years. Now she's wondering why we don't have any anymore! What happened to them?

    ReplyDelete
  24. YOUR mom wouldn't scream and toss away a bag with a vibrating, buzzing "dead" bird, we bet. YOUR mom rocks!

    Does grasshopper taste like chicken? Or maybe like moths? We've never had a grasshopper.

  25. Your visitor is very nice to play with you all!
    I think I would like to chase a grasshopper but not try to eat him! :)

  28. I'm going to have to eat breakfast BEFORE I get on the puter. Your evenings are as exciting as mine, I see. You always make me laugh. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x4 and a few more.

  29. They are good raw, aren't they, kittehs. Next time you could try them fried and finished in a dark chocolate glaze. Food for thought.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Mom said, "Ewwwwwww," but we think that bug looked pretty tasty. Small spiders and crickets are delish too! We highly recommend them.

  31. Was Mr Hopper tasty Maui?
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  32. We love it how you all gather around like you do when things appear on the catio.
    Great hunting Sweet Pea, and your generosity knows no bounds.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ewww. I don't have the stomach you do for this. Anytime a creepy crawly gets in the house, I get all squealy and immediately dispatch said crawly before the boys can devour him. Then they spend the next 20 minutes looking at me with sad eyes because I killed their new best friend. LOL

  34. That first photo of Baby is hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Being a vegetarian goat I cannot get excited about this....I am sure the Farm cats would enjoy it though.

  36. Sweet Pea you are very thoughtful to share your spoils .Poor Mr.K didn't have a hop/hope in hell with all of you on the alert...
    Crunch. Crunch. Swallow.

  37. Well done Sweet Pea, but why didn't you eat it yourself. I love a nice crunchy grasshoper and I would gladly share mine with you.

  38. Yum! We agree that spiders and crickets are great, too, but we don't eat the spikey legs on crickets!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh Sweetpea, I love the look on your face in that first picture... it says it all really MOL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh gross! Sally brings them inside from the Catio, and we just chase them around. Sometimes, they lose a leg or two...

    We received Maw's sweater and she lufs it!!! It is so purrtyyy!

    Out uncle, Tinker, RIP, was an excellent bug catcher and loved grasshoppers. He's catch them and eat them so fast it's a wonder he tasted them.

  44. Are the wings or the drumsticks the best part?

  45. Oh my goodness ~ that was a lot of excitement for one night! And a little extra protein never hurt anyone. ;)

  51. Hey next time you catch one, can you invite us over? We've never enjoyed this dish...and think we might love the crunchiness! Do you think it would taste good with some melted cheddar on top?
