Sassy cats — Trust your cats

Two seconds before I snapped this shot, Sasha was lying between both cats. Just like that I reached for the camera and she was gone. This is after the moth dessert.

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.

  1. My cat will take off running across the room and stand staring at something. Usually a centipede or spider. He doesn’t do anything, just finds them and I rescue them. His late brother used to eat the centipedes before I could get to them. Really gross to watch.

  2. Fortunately I have no bat/mouse experience with any of my cats but moths seem to be a special treat like giving a kid an ice cream cone. Ted will chase them and wear them down until they rest just a second to long then…..he gets his moth-cream cone!!!!

    Hugs, Pam

    • Or not. I was sure it had to be a mouse. We haven’t seen any at this house and I like it like that. The only thing worse than rescuing a mouse is finding mouse part scattered over the house (and wondering if your cat will get worms).
