Josie told me this would happen and it did. Last night I saw my first ever daddy long legs. Wow! All those legs and the way they bob about. And mum says they are safe to catch and as she isn't that keen on them herself she would be glad if we did.
Well, we certainly did try but they cheat! They fly too high and we couldn't reach them. I told them off at some length about it, calling them to come away from the ceiling and fight like proper insects but they just kept wibbling about in that enticing manner. Then mum turned the ceiling light off and they came a bit lower.
I didn't manage to catch one but Josie and I had good fun trying. Apparently they'll be around for another week or so before disappearing from whence they came so I bet I can catch one. I bet I can catch one before Josie does!

The things you use as toys I find amusing. My uncle Grant squeals like a girl when he sees a daddy long legs. I've tried to catch one with no luck too. It not fair they have eight legs to get around on we only have four.
We have Daddy Long Legs here in the USA, but ours are not flying insects, they are SPIDERS. They are lots of fun to catch, but there isn't a lot to them as far as eating them goes...a purrty small body, and then those L O N G legs of theirs! I must admit, ours are a lot easier to catch than yours are. You have efurry right to tell them off fur flying so high above you! I hope that you will catch one furry soon Toby. Purrlease tell me what they taste like...good luck hunting!
