Hello, Little Friend

cat at window with stinkbug
Kelly give a stinkbug a close inspection.

Kelly discovers a stink bug on the window while viewing the afternoon on the sunny bathroom windowsill.

Don’t let her fool you, the bug is not her friend, it’s her toy. I’ve always had a few around the house, even before they became an issue invading peoples’ homes; I have about the same number now. Kelly and my torbie Fawn from long ago both loved to chase and eat insects, and aside from the occasional wasp that would swing down from the attic I was never too concerned.

Kelly spared this one, however. She was much more interested in having her after-lunch bath and nap.

    My cats too. I wish I could train them to eat stinkbugs! The bugs must have a bad smell to cats as well as us.

    Great shot! My kitties have all discovered that stink bugs are not good eating, so when they come upon one they close their eyes tight and back away slowly!
