Mancat Monday - Roach Hunt!

 Anytime I see two or more cats in the tub, I know something's going on.
And the towels are pulled down on the floor, things that were in and around the tub are now on the floor... what is going on today?

Aha. The hunt is on.

Not sure what hunting move this is... but it's a good pose for the camera!

Smokey, that's looking like you're going to actually "get" this big bug.

No! Thank goodness. 
The boys will not touch these things, they just like to chase them.
And bring everything down in the bathroom in the process.
I gave the big bug a "swimming lesson" after the photos were taken.

Hope everyone is having a great Monday!

That gives the mom the shivers, and not in a good way. LOL.

Swimming lessons are good.

Roaches must taste NOT like chicken, my crew play them to death but won't eat 'em either. I loved the "Double-Seated Stalk" technique!

We don't see big bugs like that. If we ever do, we will know not to eat them. Playing with them looks like fun.

You got some great photos of the boys. The Mom screams like a girl when she sees a roach so we couldn't let her read the post.

Au and Target said...

Ew! We stomp them with kitty paws. Nice of you to do the dirty deed for the fuzzies.

Mr Puddy said...

Yes, Good idea to not touch that bug..It's Yakky Dirty one !

Cheysuli and gemini said...

EWW EWWW EWWW--that's the Woman. I am thinking fun fun fun. I knocked a spider off the wall onto her mouse and she was all freaked otu!

Sparkle said...

If that bug were here, "somebody" would have eaten him.

Cat said...

Gah that gives me the willies!!! It's good that the cats alert you when one is around :-)

Angel, Kirby and Mac said...

How funny! They will chase them but not touch them. I wish mine were that way with geckos!

Prancer Pie said...

The Paw Relations said...

We want one!

Admiral Hestorb said...

TUB HOCKEY! HaHaMeow!!!

Grace & Company are equally bad hunters!! They find things, either in the house or in the garage, and bring them into the TV room. They never kill anything, of course, but they do love to chase whatever it is!

Too bad Indy isn't around to teach them decent hunting skills!

=)

Whisppy said...

Eeek. That would freak our Mommy out. She is terrified of roaches which is why the whole house is roach proof!

OKcats said...

Well, if you're not going to eat the bug, the next best thing is to show it to your Mom! Thank you so very much for stopping by to wish me a happy gotcha day! It was a GREAT day, made better by GREAT CB cats!!

Your friend, Zoe

Here the cats don´t have so much lucky to see big bugs!!! Maybe because we live in an apartment on 4th floor.... Enjoy guys!

Mark's Mews said...

We like playin wif a pingpong ball in the tub better than one of THOSE things.

meowmeowmans said...

Yikes, we don't like those kinds of visitors here. I'm assuming the swimming lesson involved learning how to go very quickly in a downward spiral? ;)

Oui Oui said...

Hey, they look like fun and a nice alternative to crickets and stink bugs! Tub hockey with big bugs? We're coming over. If you don't eat it, Carl "The Vacuum" will!

Deb Barnes - Zee and Zoey said...

Boy oh Boy, here in Florida, we can sure relate to that! But, like you said, it's just harmless fun... the kitties don't ever snack on these cruncy critters!!

Elvira Mistress of Felinity said...

Oh, how exciting!

Such great "Sports" photos! ;-D

I've begun to take up "Atheletic Pursuits", too, when the opportunity arises.

Just a fly, or 2, so far, though. ;-D
