Frog in my throat


Recommended Posts

It was a toss-up whether to post this in Cute and Funny or Food.  Milo came trotting inside this morning and after half a minute horked up a large, slender black beetle.  It was still wiggling and seemed to have all of its legs, so I put it back outside.  Milo showed no interest in it once horked; evidently he didn't care for the throat tickle.

We would have plenty of posts for that heading :lol

One of my cats used to bring June bugs (aka cicadas) in the house and turn them loose to play with. I kept telling her, leave your friends outside!

In the spirit of female equality, I must report that dear Eve not only caught and ate flies, she ate SLUGS.  We had a don't-ask-don't-tell policy on that last one.

Why for the protein content, of course!

My Wendy caught and ate flies. Lola ate a bee and lived to tell the story. And snails....ooooo....crunchy.

:yikes I think I'll count my blessings that the most disgusting thing Sweep eats is discarded chicken bones from our neighborhood alleys. (Disclaimer: I do watch her, really I do. She's a tricksy one!)

The first thing we taught Bella was "leave it" and to not eat anything until we said "ok", because of all of the chicken bones and other garbage on NYC'S streets. Ugh, the chicken bones!

Chicken bones -- we were out for a dayhike on the Appalachian Trail once and a hound made a pounce and came up with such a prize -- chicken bone!  I mean, who goes out hiking, gnaws some KFC along the way, and then just dumps the bones by the side of the trail?  Evidently a lot of people.

I don't think dogs are tricksy getting the bones -- I think the bones themselves are tricksy.  The muted colors and angles blend in anywhere.  Maybe someone needs to start a new camouflage pattern for clothing.*

*We could make Cletus a hunting vest out of it.
