Default Pardon Me, Sir - There's A Bug On The Ceiling!


Today, my six-month old tabby Minnie jumped up on the back of my computer chair,
sat down directly behind my head, and put one of her paws in the middle of my
back about six inches below my neck. She extended a single tiny claw - not
enough to hurt...just barely enough to make me turn around and look at her. When
I did, she looked right into my eyes and very slowly raised her head to look up
toward the ceiling. It seemed to me that she was trying to make me look where
she was looking, so I did...and yes, that was exactly what she wanted me to do,
for there on the ceiling right above our heads was a beetle of some sort.

In the past she's alerted me to other insects on the ceiling by jumping up on
the computer table next to me and staring up at the ceiling until my own
curiosity made me look up to see what she was looking at. There is a ceiling fan
with lights on it right over my desk and the first time she did this, I wondered
why she'd suddenly started staring at the fixture, since she'd never paid it
much attention before and it wasn't even running at the time. It turned out it
wasn't the fan, it was a housefly on the ceiling above it she was watching.
Another time she spotted a ladybug up there. Today, however, I had a bowl of
soup and a plate with two sandwiches on it next to me on the table. Rather than
jump onto the table - and my lunch - Minnie found a different way to make me
notice the beetle on the ceiling...before it ended up in my soup!

What a thoughtful kitty! Don't want a bug to fall in your soup.

They do like those bugs. The other day I noticed that all three of my
cats (Marlo is still on vacation at Mom's house) were in the Florida
room staring out the glass doors at something. So I took a look. I
looked high. I looked low. Left, right. Nothing there. I looked at the
cats and I'm pretty sure that they were laughing.

Aww... that's pretty cute

My two will alert me that it's been more than 5 minutes since I fed
them, or it's after 8AM and I'm still in bed, but that's about it.

Remember, cats can see things people can't.

One of many! I happen to like having a furry purring thing next to me
when I go to sleep at night. And yes, Buffy is pretty good about
"bug patrol".
