We recently found out about the Society of Feline Gardeners and were so happy to meet other gardening kittehs. Thanks to Jonesie over at Cory Cat Blog, we can now be members of a gardening club...we LOVE gardening!
Our story this week is about larva (larvi?) that Mom found living in the ground below the Blue Spruce. These ugly creatures live about an inch below the surface and you might never know they are there unless you dig up the ground because they are just waiting to turn into weird flying bugs in the summer (in the summer, after they have become bugs, they come crawling out of holes in the ground and noisily fly away). Sometimes we see blackbirds digging holes in the ground and pulling them out, but the other day, Mom was digging in the flowerbed and she found a whole bunch of them (that she later gave to the koi). We, of course, had to come and make sure that they were of no danger to her.
I only smelled them and touched them with the tips of my toes.
Lautrec actually put one in his mouth, but didn't eat it. EEEEWWWWW!!!
