Why is it that cats love to eat bugs?
We get these ugly bugs in the house at certain times of the year - they are called camel crickets. Even though we exterminate, we can't get all the bugs out of this old house. When I saw my first camel cricket in the house, I had no idea what it was. I named it George, and asked Randy to please remove George from the house. Then we got a few more Georges in the house, and we looked them up online to see what we were dealing with.
The cats love to eat Georges. Usually they pull off their pokey back legs and eat the cricket body, leaving the legs on the floor. Recently the cats haven't been too picky, they've been eating the cricket, legs and all.
Here's Jack going for George.
All gone! Yum! It must be like a crunchy potato chip to the cat. I don't know how he eats those long antenna!
