My hunters!

This morning when we got up, Ira found the cats' latest prey in the middle of the floor. It was a scorpion!! The body itself was about 2 inches long, so it was a pretty big one! I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but scorpions are my one thing that really freak me out! It was in my house!! Even more importantly, it coulda got my babies I have no idea how they didn't get stung or anything. Neither was acting funny, no lumps or tender spots I even checked scrappy for good measure and found nothing. I'm so glad they're all ok! I wish I could convince myself that was the only one in here

Ew. I don't think I could handle that - not loose in my house anyway ! Like you, I'd be worried about my babies ... but, good for them for protecting their Momma !

Sleep with one eye open ....

LOL, I'm glad I'm not the only one freaked out by those things! I can handle them in cages or at the petstore, just not loose in my house. If they're loose they get the shoe (or the kitty tag team )!

Probably thought it was a well-armored mouse.

Scorpions are nasty little fellows ... I'm glad your cats' curiosity didn't get the better of them!!

My cats just point and show me where it is. They can't be bothered hunting anything.

Becki don't you feel safer knowing that your kitties are protecting you and not letting these creepies walk all over you at night! *shudders*
