Sister Saturday with Antsy Dolly




Okay friends, Brian was calling me antsy and I was going to whap him a good one, but then I thought about it for a minute.  Now I’m not saying Brian is correct, I sure wouldn’t want to do that, but purrhaps he is on to a little something without even know it.

I am a little bit antsy.  Do you know what that really means?  It means that it is ant season and some of those little bitty ants have found their way into the house.  I’m the antsy one, I can hear them coming into a room before they even know they are doing it.  Those little boogers are noisy and they make that marching/stomping sound with their little feet.  They sound like a bunch of Clydesdales marching down the road to me.  I can smell them too, and they have such a distinct odor, sort of like dirty metal or something.  They usually send a scout out to make sure all is safe, but I always hear him, no matter how quiet he tries to be.  I will go running across the room to greet him, then I eat him.  Nothing better than a nice meet n’greet n’eat!  Actually, we’ve only seen a few ants here and there, but rest assured, I’m on guard, and yes Brian, I am a wee bit antsy, but someone has to do it.

What about you?  Can you see those teeny little bugs way before your peeps do?

Have a fun Saturday everyone and get plenty of Easy in tomorrow.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Wow you must have some great hearing! MOL! We usually get ants in the house during the summer, but this year has been great and mostly ant free. I catch a few here and there sometimes.

Wow! Mommy wishes you could teach us how to Greet N Eat the ants that make their way into the house. We usually just Greet and walk off. And Mommy has to do the job of eating, uh, no, wiping the ants away.

Hi there Dolly, what a good girl you are to catch those ants. Our bug lady is Two Two. She is good at catching most anything and then eats it right up. But glad you are right there on the job Sister Dolly. You all have a great day.

Eeek! Hate ants in the house! Luckily there is only the odd one. Banjo is a very good mosquito, moth and fly catcher. 🙂

I bet you would have a lot more ants in the house if you weren’t on the job hunting them down, Dolly. We had no idea they were so loud!

This has been one of the most antsy years ever. We could use you here Dolly as they are driving Mom and Dad crazy. If we drop one little piece of food on the floor, they are on it before Mom can pick it up. She only uses natural, non-toxic to humans and animals bug spray. What that means is you have to drown the dumb things. There is no residual effect once it dries. We ignore the darn things…not enough meat to bother with them. May we say, Dolly, that you are absolutely stunning in this photo. We could… Read more »

We had a few ants eight years ago when we moved in, so Mommy sprinkled cayenne pepper in the seams of the wood at the base of all exterior doors and windows making sure to clean up any pepper where kitties would step,…and then we were ant-free for eight years. But this year the ants tried to moved in again. Our Clarence detected them like you did, and Mommy re-cayenne peppered the doors and windows, so we are ant-free again. She also placed a saucer of water beneath of our crunchy food dish so ants couldn’t get to it, just… Read more »

Dolly, don’t even get me started about those ants! We had such a bad ant problem here that my human had to hire an exterminator and all us kitties had to vacate the house yesterday! My human took us to a friend’s place nearby and we spent the night, but we were mighty hissed off about it!

You are doing a very worthwhile job Dolly. I always know when the ants are around and tell mum so she can kill them.

You know, Dolly, you’re saving your family from a marauding ant attack. It’s hard work, but the rewards in the end make up for it.

You have some amazing hearing! We had ants really badly last month and mostly we ignored them unless they got into our food. You must be one sensitive girl, sister Dolly!

The mom freaks when the ants come in the house….she doesn’t want us to get them. But fortunately, we haven’t had any ants lately. But as for spiders…that’s another story!

The peeps used to have ants every year in the old house but they don’t come up 4 floors fortunately. Nicky used to bring them into the house and they even got into TW’s bed one year. I bet your peeps are happy you’re eating them.
