moonwise: (life with biscuit)
[personal profile] moonwise
Something large and buzzy was bonking around my bedroom while Biscuit begged for drinkies from the faucet. I caught it in a tissue and showed it to Biscuit.

Me: *shows Biscuit the stink bug* If you weren't a useless cat, you would have caught this bug.

Biscuit: *purrs*

Kitties are not meant to be useful exterminators, in fact if you look in their contract you will see quite clearly that along with providing room and board for them you must also see to removing all pests as you are the cat's staff.

Gah, hate it when the large insects make their way into the house. Mont chirps at them. I guess she thinks they're very small birds who will fall for her 'I AM NOT A CAT' routine...

She could at least have found the wretched little insect.

Oh well, you're right; dogs have owners, cats have staff.

Our crack squad of exterminators aren't very effective either.

Right after I posted that comment last night Q*Bert brought my attention to a fly she'd only slightly damaged. What a killer.

LOL. It would seem the bug wasn't important enough for a cat of her stature. :D

Of course not! That's why she has humans.

Clearly, you must provide more engaging bugs. That one simply did not suit. ;)

We caught a little gray mouse that had been living in our grill for the winter. I'm sure Biscuit would have found mousie much more interesting. (The mouse ended up in the Mouse Relocation Program, and all was well.)
