Somewhere, I've heard a human say that the best things in life are free. After last night, I have to say there's definitely some truth in that statement.
Last night most of us were in the bedroom enjoying all the scents of the rainy air that wafted in through the windows, watching TV, watching Mom work on her laptop, or catnapping when suddenly Velcro took a flying leap at the tv. Being a klutz, all he achieved was hitting the wastebasket, knocking it over, and strewing some of its contents across the floor. Then as quickly as he erupted into that flurry of activity, he settled down again.
For awhile, all remained quiet when suddenly Skittles got up from her spot by the window and made a flying leap onto Mom's desk, hopped up onto the printer, and took a flying leap at the closet door! Her landing was considerably better than Velcro's. She didn't knock anything down. After her weird outburst, everything again returned to normal with one exception.
On the headboard of the bed, Righty sat intensely alert, moving her slowly as if she was watching an unseen Something moving through the air. Uno sped across the room, took a flying leap onto the dresser, and repeated Velcro's leap at the TV. Being the most coordinated of our kitty family, instead of repeating Velcro's landing style, Uno landed perfectly poised to execute her next maneuver.
Uno's next maneuver was to spin 180 degrees, cover the distance across the room at lightning speed, and make a soaring leap at the lamp just above the headboard. Immediately, Righty jumped down onto the floor beside where I sat. She proceeded to manipulate the mysterious source of all the activity which soon revealed itself.
Pinned down by Righty's paw was a small moth that Uno had knocked out of the air. The moth had fallen to the floor, now Righty had it and was just preparing to devour the miniscule morsel of entertainment when.....
From my vantage point under the bed just out of sight where Righty crouched with the moth, I flashed my paw outward and across in front of Righty, snagging the moth with my #1 claw. CHOMP! The moth was mine and it tasted good too! And we sure had fun chasing it!
