Caturday: Furry fly trap

Another Caturday rolls around and while late, I have a post. Our other replacement computer is here and I spent a couple of days wiping the hard drive on the old ones. I decided to go for more than a mere formatting and opted to wipe the drives by having the data overwritten with gibberish instead. It’s much more secure than reformatting or taking a hammer to it. Now they can go to the e-waste facility.

The kitties are still adjusting, but it’s going well. They have recently taken up the sport of fly trapping. We don’t get a lot of flies, but there are more here in the East Bay than in San Francisco. I’m hoping I can keep them out as much as possible though as the pointy eared people will destroy the trailer in their trapping endeavors.

Lucky for me, Tito caught the fly before the other two noticed.

Miss Jenny did something quite interesting…for her. In the evenings, I leave the front door open as there’s a screen door and the fresh air is nice. I was working on the budget when I heard a low growl that got louder and turned into quite a snarl. It was our Miss Jenny. She was in full fluffage mode and pissed off. There may have been a dog or raccoon out there. I didn’t see anything. The only thing she ever used to growl at was people in cherry pickers. Yeah, really. Go figure. Anyhow, she recovered and came over near me to chase her tail, ask for pettings, and purr a lot. No fly trapping for her.

Titanescu was napping near me in the corner. He wasn’t interested in the fly or Miss Jenny’s antics.

  1. Ohh! That is some fine riverdancing that little bird is doing.

    My cats love to chase flies but I always have to intervene when they catch moths. I can’t tell you how many moths I’ve had to rescue from Cora and Pearl’s jaws. They always fly off when I release them out the back door — so, hopefully they suffer no long lasting trauma. 🙂

    1. I haven’t had to rescue a moth yet. The street light outside is much brighter than anything I have on at night, so they aren’t attracted. I’m sure I’ll get one sooner or later. Hopefully our blogging will resume with greater frequency after tomorrow, when AT&T comes to hook up our internet. We actually have things to say now, but it’s hard with a weak signal. Just loading a pic from the phone puts everything else at a standstill. We aren’t getting cable or anything else. I’ve lived without cable for almost 15 years and have no desire to have it again. 🙂
