“Dougy! Come here and see the bug!”
Dougy came running. The bug…is dead! (The other Doug decided to deal with it since Dougy only batted it around and it got away mostly unscathed.)
Hope springs eternal in cats, too! Dougy isn’t ready to accept the fact that the bug no longer is around to play with. Really, it’s up on the wall somewhere!
And where there was one buggy, there might be another in it’s place. Purr purr purr.
You know it. In this instance, an earlier bug was, indeed, replaced with yet another one a few days later.
Oh to be a kitty-boy, who actually finds bugs entertaining! 🤩
On the other hand, a $30 cat toy is a big MEH to them! LOL!
Oh you bug-killer, fun-killer human who deprives kitties of the excitement of big hunt!
We make up with it by lketting them hunt spiders to their heart’s content! LOL!
That makes us feel better – The Cat Gang!😻
Pyshka loves to hunt Palmetto bugs (do you know what these critters are? They are HUGE!) that sometimes wonder from the yard, but she is a vegetarian, sort of, so she only tears them apart and leaves the remains for me to clean up.
Yes, I know they are a type of cockroach, though I never spotted any when I’ve been in the south. What a terrible thing to do – leave you the massacred mess to clean up!
She is still a baby; she’ll learn.
Or become a much better cockroach predator!
LOL There is a vital difference between cockroaches and Palmetto bugs: female Palmetto bugs fly and bite, and I am allergic to their bites. Therefore, I would rather clean up remains after a kitty hunter who gets rid of them for me.
Ugh! I’d be happy just to have them “assassinated by cat”, though cleaning up the mess after killing them would be a nice touch for your kitty!
Curiously enough, she is the neatest of the gang in everything, with the exception of monster bugs. I think she is disgusted by remains and just walks away. It’s ok; I’d rather clean than end up in an Emergency Room.
I doubt there is much of interest (foodwise) to those bugs.
You’re right. And you’ve just reminded me that I have to go water my cat grass, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to make a salad tomorrow, It’s the only distraction!
The bug is an ex-bug, it is no longer, it passed, it is deceased, it is at peace, it is at rest, it kicked the bucket, it met it’s maker, it is off the hook, it took its last bow …
Not a second too soon, either!
He must think you caught a different bug. 🙂
It’s hard to tell, but that could be it!
doodz…..lookz ta bee a wasp frum TT shorez & if sew… itz a good thing dad doug getted rid oh it….trooth !! 🙂 ♥♥
Whatever it was, it was hanging around a bit too long!
That’s a darn big bug! No wonder the boys wanted it out of the sky!
Yes, and there was some concern it was a harmful one at that.

Ugh! Those guys are nasty!
I understand Dougy . What a deception ! He thought to play with the bug and this one has disappeared !
I did not know cats played with bugs. This may be dangerous with any bugs
I think so, too, Michel. Some have painful bites, and this (if I identified it correctly) is one such bug. Anyway, cats do play with their prey. If they are hungry, they eventually eat it, but many times (especially with spoiled, well-fed domestic cats!) they just play with their prey.
.well let’s say it with a classics… ding dong the bug is dead ;O)
LOl! Bravo! Bravo! Love it1
