Because it's been raining a lot here in Manila. these insects known as gamu gamo appear in the hundreds before sunrise. Attracted by the lights of the house, they're my cats' latest fun toys. While I prepare their breakfast, the silly kitties are jumping, running and chasing these bugs which are pretty easy to catch. One swat of their paw, the insect falls to the ground still alive and spinning like a top. The kitties have one or two bugs each and they watch or swat at it. They do not eat them though, which is good. Sometimes I have to call the cats twice that their food is ready. Even though I don't like these bugs (they get into everything - water, food, clothes) I'm happy to see my babies having a wonderful time.
