for the love of cats
My husband & I have been teaching our 11 month old cat how to hunt bugs. He's excited to learn and eager to please. Gilbert has been having a hard time eating the bugs. Poor cat would lunge forward to eat the bug up, but the bug would move by then. It's actually very amusing to watch. I didn't want him to get discouraged, so I have been flipping over the bugs on its back so Gilbert can get them. He was so tickled to eat his first bug, a little creepy crawling that sneaked into the kitchen. He just purred and purred. I told him what a good boy he was, and oh nelly he was hooked! Hunting bugs was fun!
This morning I awoke to find Gilbert by the kitchen back door. He was facing the corner where the cabinet and wall meet. He meowed at me and I came to look. Gilbert had a slew of ants cornered! He was on the front line and was proud to keep the bugs at bay. He just purred and purred. He knew he was being a good boy.
Do any of your cats enjoy hunting & eating bugs? I would love to hear stories!
