Whenever one or several of my cats are intently staring at something I know it’s cause for concern. It may be a bat or a mouse or a chipmunk (yes I had all three at one time or another). Sometimes it’s a cricket or a house fly.
I bought a bag of corn cobs to feed the squirrels. They were in the laundry area waiting to move to the garage. Morgan took a great interest in the bag. No constant but sniffing for a while, then returning after a nap or a nosh.
In the evening she didn’t come out for supper. Morgan likes supper so I knew something was us. She was sitting in front of the bag staring. I looked around and didn’t see anything. Soon she was joined by Sasha and Gus. Three cats staring at a bag of corn? Something was up.
I thought maybe there was a mouse in back of it or in the package. It wouldn’t be unusual for a mouse to chew a hole and get inside but I couldn’t see any sign of that. I gingerly moved the bag and a huge moth flew up. They were all in heaven. I’m sure someone had it for dessert.
The good news is that I didn’t have to rescue a mouse. I don’t rescue moths. They are on their own. Always listen to your pets. They see the unseen.
