Lucky on the other hand likes to befriend bugs...she will follow them around and then lay down next to them. If they try to wander off she will pull them back with her paw...but she won't kill them, and definitely won't eat them!!
So basically you've got a lover and a fighter.

Oh, and not much puts me off my food, but I think "basement littered with twitching carcasses" just might have done the trick.

Leo is one of the most adept cats I have ever seen or known when it comes to killing bugs (I imagine he'd be god at mice and other rodents, which would have helped with the rat infestation in Ian's old basement, but he's inside only and I don't want him getting near ANY place where rat poison might possibly be). He can literally catch flies in his paws...it's kind of scary. Yet another reason why we call him the Zen Master Kitty! Lola tries her darndest, but she's still going through that akward kitten phase.

sorry about that....but now you know what i go through. I have to remind myself not to go into the basement barefoot!! Especially if rambo comes up licking his lips or looking proud!

I decided to post this picture in this thread too.....i've just discovered what exactly it is that rambo's been having fun with in the basement. Introducing the critter of my nightmares...the house centipede. Anyone else have these guys?

You guys have bugs in your house? I've never seen a bug in our house
Of course we have 12 bengals on 24 hour bug patrol. Bengals are the environmentally safe option to using Raid.

Ack! That's not a bug; that's ... I don't know what it is, but it is wrong on so many levels.

Actually, Leo just ate one of those about 10 minutes ago...

Nial, that's classic...you know how I like to use all-natural, environmentally sound products..I can see it now...go to the natural food store to buy some natural bug bombs, and instead you come upon a Bengal breeder's number

That's it, Nial. I want a bengal. I can be in NC in 3 hours!

That looks a little too familiar!

EEK! that's Scary

Since the weather's turned colder we've had 3!! waterbug invasions (the big red flying cockroaches EEE!!) and i'm Deathly afraid of them! Gibby is our Roach chaser, but note I said CHASER, he won't kill the darn things!! Molly is our spider patrol, but since we moved there haven't been that much by the way of spiders. Our old apartment, we couldn't use the porch for all the spiders!

Paige doesn't hunt bugs, it's below her.

this is so funny - they're like their namesakes!

We had those in the dorms at Georgia Tech. They scared me more than anything I've ever seen, and even my Georgian roommates hadn't ever seen one. And my RA's boyfriend wouldn't kill it for me, because it scared him too much.

I never had bugs till we got these 2. Well ok we had ants, but usually spraying under the house once in the spring took care of that. Not this year!

Ok, I'll be here. I'll get the stencils out and spray "Orkin" on the sides of one of them for you.
