Hello Diary friends! It's been a while and a very fun year. I am all grown up now and the very biggest cat in our house by a lot. My brothers don't like to to wrestle with me any more cause I always win. But something crazy happened this weekend I want to tell you all about. There are these red and black bugs all over our wall outside and sometimes they get in. Friday night in the middle of the night ( which we all know that is when we cats have the most fun) I found one and thought he would be a tasty snack. I took a bite and it tasted HORRIBLE so I spit it right out. But then, the strangest thing happened, spit began to pour out of my mouth like by the gallons. I ran to mom cause she always fixes everything, and makes me feel better, but she was sleeping so I just snuggled next to her and then when she felt all my spit all over her, she woke up. She was sleepy so she just went back to sleep. The next morning they thought I was playing in water somewhere but they looked close and they saw I was drooling. They took me right to the vet, but before we went Mom looked all around to see if there were any clues as to why I was sick. She found the bug I spit out and put it in a Baggie. When we got to the vet, they checked me out good. They said I was healthy, but when they saw the bug they said it was a Stink Bug, and that's what made me sick! They make a horrible tasting and smelling stuff come out when you bite them. And horrible tastes make us cat drool. I drooled all day yesterday and now it is almost all better. I only have a few spit drops now and then. So Catsters, learn from me, don't eat stink bugs! You will regret it!
