Sweet Pea here.
Monday night the Catio was invaded by a stupendously collossal insect. It was EPICALLY HUGE. Naturally, I was the ferocious kitty who snagged it--I wait all year for these guys to appear--MOTHZILLA! (flutterius ginormica)
After I got him firmly betwixt my
slavering jaws delicate teefs I sallied into the house to torment play with my pet victim in a leisurely way, (Mommy, why are you using so many strike outs?) where Mommy twigged onto what was going on and grabbed the camera.
Anyway...Rupert was all up in my stuff wanting to share when I didn't, so I had to hold Mothzilla in my mouth and moan at the same time; not an easy feat considering the size of my prize. Rupert was a tiny bit relentless, so eventually I spat out Mothzilla and we amused ourselves with him together...at first.
All of a sudden, Mothzilla made a
break for freedom weakly fluttered across the floor!
Rupert was on Mothzilla like a shot.
He didn't keep him for long, though--because Scouty was lurking, and when Rupert let Mothzilla go for some further fun and games Scout faultlessly executed the classic "Sprint, Scoop-n-Swallow" maneuver, racing from the dining room to the back cat flap.
Alas, no images of this rare event exist.
There's always tonight, though!
Those Mothzillae are all over the yard. It's only a matter of time.

Pee Ess: The birdy on our blog yesterday is a male Yellow-Headed Blackbird! Mommy is a moron and forgot to type it.
