My cat Cassey, is a spider eater. She LOVES eating spiders. Her all time favourite is a Daddy Longlegs. Every morning we find the legs of the spiders she ate the night before. Legs are just not her thing. We do have to prevent her from attacking the Sack spiders, because they are deadly. I worry that she might get bitten and get sick. Or die. She has on occasion gone for a scorpion too, but we stop her from eating those, we are not sure what will happen if she gets stung.
She did get stung by a bee once. Shame poor lil girl, her little chin swelled up. It was adorable! I know she didn’t think it was adorable, but we did!
She is a bug eater off note. When she gets her fangs into (or I should rather say, around) a Parktown Prawn, (corn cricket) it’s her ultimate favourite. It actually sounds like she’s sinking her teeth into metal. Those are hard bugs!
She’s also a huge catnip fan, dry or live plant. She actually gets high on it I’m sure of it!
We have high-jinx when my Sister’s cat Rocky comes for a visit. The 2 cats compete to see who can eat the most. So after a visit from Rocky, both cats gain weight. It’s really funny to see the 2 compete. They compete with everything. It doesn’t matter how many scratching blocks we have, Rocky will ‘own’ the one Cassey is sitting on and vice verse. Hilarious really. We are going away next weekend so Cassey will go and visit Rocky, and then my Sister will have both kitties. I’m sure there will be some funny stories to tell after the weekend.
