Kitties and Cicadas

Last night I was not paying a lot of attention to my cats… although I did here a strange noise coming from the porch…

When I looked out — my two cats were staring intently at the screen door (the screen door has a piece of plexiglass attached on the outside bottom — a few feet tall — to keep the dogs from scratching at the screen).

I thought that perhaps a neighbor’s cat was visiting —

Pru patted the screen — and I saw the cicada trapped between the screen and the plexiglass. I thought it was dead (from all the attention), but it was still moving this morning — had crawled up the screen almost to the top of the plexiglass — perhaps it will free itself… It is a lot less interesting — Pru has come to oversee the writing of this post! And Allie is sleeping :)
