Marley's Cricket

AYLA: I am SO relieved!  There wasnt a cricket to be found in the house annywhere, not even in the garage.  TBT says he hasnt heard a cricket in the house all year, and come to think of it, I havent either.

So I was very thrilled when Eric and Flynn offerred to teleport a few over from England.  They arrived in a small box at my ESS.  Well, big fat GRASSHOPPERS arrived.  Thats even BETTER!  Marley's idea of "cricket" is kinna vague; iffen its a hoppy bug, its a "cricket".  So Marley was thrilled with them, and we all had one each (leaves a extra one fer Marley fer later).

Which also meant I could finally get some undisturbed rest after all my cricketless hunting efforts!

Oh I do love a good hopper! I don't have any claws but they are very easy to catch in the grass!

Enjoy!

Looks like someone had a crunchy treat from across the pond.

The cricket harvest has been disappointing here too. I think I have found one... I DO hear loads of them outside, but they are just not coming in where I can hunt them!

Grasshoppers....? Are they good with a bit of catnip on them? :)

PS. I think Ayla has the right idea!!

MOL, I love a happy ending! Crickets for all!

The Island Cats said...

Wow, that musta been fun for Marley!!

Rykers Boyz n Allie said...

Whew, it's a good thing you had them bring GRASShoppers and not Crickets. Do you know what those Brit cats think cricket is? *shakes head*

Shaggy and Scout said...

We have grasshoppers but theres way less dragonflies this year than usual.
Still loving the nip!

Girlcat cop out - needing a pair of handsome ginger mancats to rescue you! Well done Eric and Flynn!

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

Iza: We girlcats KNEW that SOME mancats would provide the hoppers Ayla needed. MOL!

But We LOVE Eric and Flynn for doing that when no other mancat did...

Sierra said...

Did you play with it before you ate it? Or did you just gobble it up? :) Sounds like a yummy little snack!

Eric and Flynn is the bestest! They sure knows how to treat their friends.
