Mom brought in a grasshopper for us. We don't get many in our cat run because it is in the shade. They love sunshine. I have experience with them on my leash walks. When they are little, they are very hard to catch. This one was medium and quite fast too. Mom had to catch it first, then she brought it in the house for us. I was on it right away. Mom had to call a sleepy eyed Kitcat to come and see it. We played with it for a while but she didn't know what to do. I eventually ate it as they do taste pretty good. Goofy Kitcat is still looking for it. It is in my tummy.

Sounds like a nutritious snack. Next time maybe have it covered in chocolate??

How did you train your human to hunt for you? Pawsome!!!

Oh, to train your human to hunt for you you have to act real bored and lazy. You would be surprised at the things they will do to get you moving and interested! So, Mom who is grossed out by bugs, will catch one for us (one that doesn't sting or bite) and bring it on in! She tried stink bugs but they move too slow to get us going and they stink and aren't good to eat.
So, long story short, you have to use body language to show your human how much you would love to chase after the outdoor critters that you see outside your window. (We are talking indoor cats, leash cats, and cats contained in other fashions like our cat run.)
Flies would be perfect but we don't get many out this way. Moths are great but Mom is afraid they will crawl in her ear when she is trying to sleep at night. That happened to an aunt of hers. It was a bad scene, so Mom was told by her Mom. So she won't purposely allow those in.

Thank you all who commented and read my diary.
