Critter Photo #45

Posted on: November 13, 2017

A small black ant fell on our living room carpet. From her resting spot on our recliner, Bootsie instantly perked up. Her ears twitched. Her eyes widened. This got the attention of our other two cats. They followed her gaze. Cinder’s shoulders hunched. Rainy crouched. Prey!

I stroked Bootsie’s ears and kept watch with the girls. The ant wandered along the edge of the television cabinet. Andy left the room and returned with toilet paper. He slid a thin sheet under the ant. It ran to the edge, but didn’t jump. Instead it scurried this way and that. Andy headed to the door and flicked the ant outside.

Bootsie straightened up. She jumped down and sniffed the carpet in front of the television. Our other two cats followed. Rainy pawed at the wooden cabinet and meowed. The other cats paced. Cinder even ran up to me and rubbed against me. Where’s the prey?

They have to keep the house safe from unwanted critters. Andy did a good job getting the ant outside where it belongs.

Have a purrfect Awww Monday. ☺

This story is about the cats at old house, but they’re just as vigilant in our new house. Sometimes they’re even faster than Andy or me and they end up eating unwanted critters!
