Howdy dudes and dudettes, how y’all been doin’ lately, I haven’t seen you since Sunday. If you did a selfie on Sunday I did track it down. It helps me to practice my tracking skills. Really, tracking skills. You just never know when you’ll be called upon to track something down.

Just last week I was called upon, by the Mom, to track down a fly that had gotten in the house. Yep, lots of times when the Dad goes out the back sliding door to feed the ferals a little old house fly will zip right in. So, the Mom said “Simon, come find that fly”, and I knew immediately that my tracking skills would come in handy.

Did I find the fly? Well of course I did, I’m a darn good bugger, I can smell them and I can hear them too. It’s actually quite the fun hobby to have! Okay, that’s it for me today, have a fun Tabby Tuesday everyone. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Simon! Being on the big chair – does that mean you’re CHAIRman of the Board? I guess you are the champion flycatcher so that alone entitles you to be CHAIRman!!!

    Hugs, Teddy

    Catching bugs is an important job. Everyone who hates bugs should have cats. Floki is our resident bug catcher. It used to be Chris but not so much anymore.

    We had a couple of cat-fly hunters gone wild last night here when one got in from the garage. LOL quite comical – good job Simon

    Now that is a skill that might make me get us a cat because the fly comes into sliding glass door and then I run around with a fly SWAT trying to catch it you would be a big help here

    You could teach June a thing or two! The only bug she can catch is the one that crawls on the floor (thankfully they are few), she finds them to be delicious little snacks.

    PS oh why oh why does wordpress interfere and make that TURTLE show up as my “picture” when my red and white stripey sox should be there! UGH!!!

    Flies are such pests and try eating dinner with one of them buzzing your food. Your sure did a great job protecting your peeps from that pesky fly.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.
                              
    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches all around and my best to your peeps. ♥

    Charlee: “You’re in the big chair, Simon? Our Dada says we have to ask if you found any songs there.”
    Chaplin: “We don’t know why we have to ask that but we suspect it’s some sort of 80s album reference.”

    Simon, you and I should open our own fly catching company! I’m darned good at it myself, (especially for being a newbie at it!) Love, Roary

    I thought the title said Big Charming with Simon – which would have been true. Tilly also likes hunting flies. She’s the first kitty I’ve had who shows interest in them.

    But did your Mama let you snack on the fly?? We usually have to hand our flies over to Mama when we catch them…spoil sport Mama!

    Your tracking skills are excellent, Simon – they brought you right to our Sunday post. So what did you do with that fly once you caught it? We like to roll them around in our mouth and then spit them out – Mom is always surprised we don’t swallow them.

    Oh you have patience don’t you? We had a black lab that had incredible patience. But he caught a few bords off guard too. He loved to see and wait to catch a fly! THat requires lots of wait time. You are sure a steady feline. Thanks for sharing your story here.

    Teddy not only tracks bugs that fly in, but he also brings in grasshoppers and cicadas from the balcony. He tries to be subtle about it because he knows it is not something he should do. I am not a person who likes bugs of any kind in the house, outside is fine, but not inside!

    Guess what, Brian. I have learned to speak/communicate to the flies and ask them to leave and let me be. They used to bother me so much when I would sit outside to meditate or grab a snooze. I found a trick where you could tell them nicely, pleasely leave and there is plenty of place for you to go around here, and let me also be at peace.

    It works better than the herbal sprays we use, believe you me. You could ask lizards, rats and other pests to leave your home in the same manner.

    I know it may sound funny to many, but it works like magic. 🙂 My teacher taught me this trick.
    Have a great week.
