RIP to our bug

Some of you might remember (or were disgusted by) our bug, a Madagascar hissing cockroach. Yesterday when I was going to make breakfast, she was upside down in her cage. Jim took her out, held her, and put her upright in the cage. Sadly, when I came home from work, she was gone. We had her 23 months, and I must admit that she grew on me. Goodbye little bug.

Sadie especially will miss watching you. She was smelling and exploring the cage, looking and looking for the bug.
Where is my favorite entertainment the bug?

We're sorry your entertainment....er, bug...is gone. It does give the mom shivers to look at the pics, and not in a good way. But still, she had a good buggy life with you, and that's what counts.

We bring them in ever so often. Would you like mom to send you a replacement?

So sad to lose an animal you have been caring for.

I can send you lots of replacements from Hawaii but ours aren't that big and they fly like kamikaze airplanes. RIP Miss Bug. You will be missed by all in the Schweitzer household.

I never thought about keeping a bug as a pet. What a good idea!!!
Sorry your entertainment is gone.

I'm sorry your bug died! It sounds like she had quite a good life, for a cockroach.

We're sorry about your bug. RIP, bug...we bet you are hissing at the Bridge. (Do bugs go to the Bridge?)

Two kitties on the porch couch

Ringo and Lucy both love to sneak out on the porch anytime they can (with sneak meaning that Jim opens the door for them).
