Tis the season.
Due to winter being rainy here in Los Angeles, this spring there is an uptick in flowers, fruit, and … bugs.
Cynthia has the kitties alternating bug duty.
Penelope Kitten disposed of approximately 5 1/2 bugs while on the job.
Marcy is currently on duty as Cynthia blogs.
Cynthia glances over at a half asleep Marcy and sees a small brown oval shape marching over her paw.
Cynthia: Marcy! Wake up! There’s a potato bug on your arm.
Marcy mildly watches the potato bug as it maneuvers off her paw and onto the couch.
Cynthia: Get it! Why aren’t you getting it?
Marcy (yawning): That’s Daryl.
Marcy: Yeah. He’s pretty stupid but… you know… he doesn’t bother me.
Marcy puts her head on her paws and starts snoozing.
Daryl makes his way between the seat cushions and disappears.
Cynthia: I guess I’ll just…I don’t know… BURN THE COUCH?!
Cynthia: Penelopeeeeeee! Heeeelp! There’s a bug!
penelope kitten (squeaking): reporting for duty, sir.
