Tucker and the bug

First, thank you to everyone who posted comments about our late family friend. The funeral was a dignified tribute and send off. The family was very appreciative of the support.

Today's photos include a newer member of the, um, family. Jim works for a community newspaper, and as part of a press release, was given a hissing Madacascar cockroach. This bug is HUGE, more than 3 inches long. In the second photo, I drew an arrow pointing to him (her?).

The cats are fascinated with this creature. Here's Tucker watching with interest.

Oh. My.

What an amazing creature. Oh wow. I cannot see the connection between this fabulously icky creature and the community newspaper but I bet it was fun!! WOW!!! And yuck at the same time!! A hissing cockroach. Life is just so amazing!

Tucker you are one brave handsome kitty! Hello too to sweet Sadie and Benny!
Take care

Good snoopervising job, Tucker!!!!!!!!

Happy Monday to all of you.

We were sad to hear of your mama's loss.

We bet he's very crunchy and wonder if he hisses all the way down to your belly after you eat him. Our Mom is going "eeeee-uuuuu!"

I'd be a bit concerned of the new protein source Tucker is contemplating.

Angel and Kirby said...

We hope he does not escape!

Just THINK of the crunch factor!

Mommy says she hopes it's not a pregnant female. aaaaiiiieeee!!!!

That does sound like a fun creature for the cats to check out! It's way more interesting than the native bugs here, that's for sure!

Also, ew.

I love that top picture of Tucker! I can only imagine what was going through his head, lol.


But I'm part of the gift!

I could only get one photo of this. I had a shopping bag on the table. We were visiting relatives and I was going to add some fruit and oth...
