Kat VS Kadiddlehopper




Kitties!

Sweet Pea here.
Mommy was whaling relaxing on the sofa when she heard the cat flap flapping madly...there was a cat conga line through the door, and everyone was following me!  

This could only mean one thing: 
Prey!
It was a ginormous grasshopper kadiddlehopper.
Minus a leg.

Kitties, he was so much fun!  Even in his compromised state he had us running and leaping all over the living room in pursuit. 

(Mommy didn't have much time to do anything but grab a camera and start taking photos, so I apologise for the quality.)

He drew quite the crowd.

After a few tentative paw pats I gave it a taste.  It was awful, which is why I didn't chase CC when he grabbed it from me and started crunching it down.  (And  foamed from the flavor.)  Naturally this won't stop us from sampling any insects in the future--you never know--maybe there's an absolutely delicious variety of kadiddlehopper out there...yet!


Happy Thursday!

  7. Oooooh! We're so jealous! Why didn't Mom take us to a more interesting place?? I mean, we wanted to stay home, but if we're first going on a holiday, we'd expect that she takes us somewhere where we can hunt!!

  8. That looks like fun. I am sorry it tasted bad though. I have lots of grasshoppers here and they are very tasty and crunchy. Want to come over and catch some with me?

  10. Ever heard of the Darwin Awards? Given to humans who do such stupid things, usually causing their own deaths, that the world is happy that they haven't had children who would be stuck with stupid genetics...am thinking that grasshopper should get an award for jumping into an area with thirteen cats!

  20. You know, we had an absolute invasion of them last year. My mom said she couldn't go anywhere outside without being assailed by them. Really though I think she was just making an excuse for all her windmill action in public.

  21. Wow! They grow those kadiddlehoppers big where you live. ;)

  25. Maybe he has some tastier cousins close by. Foaming sounds a bit scary, though....

  27. Sweet Pea...everyone was surprised when Calista Jo didn't eat the huge moth she brought Mom a few days ago. Astrid, however, is our bug eater and she was off doing something else. Your kadiddlehopper certainly got a lot of attention. Happy CC enjoyed it. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
