The other night, the girls had a big bug hunting adventure, and they wanted to share it with you. I don’t know who had more fun: the girls or me. They were utterly fascinated by this new “toy” in our living room. I was thoroughly entertained watching them try to catch the bug. The level of teamwork they displayed was remarkable; I swear I could hear them strategize on how to best approach this hunt!
But why don’t I let them tell you in their own words.
Allegra: Ruby, come over here. You’ve got to see this!
Ruby: What? What’s over there? I’m … Oooh! A bug! A bug!
Allegra: Told you!
Ruby: We should catch it. I bet it would be fun to play with, and Mom would be proud of us. I’m going to pounce on it!
Allegra: Whoa, not so fast, Ruby. We’ve got to come up with a strategy first.
Ruby: What’s strategy?
Allegra: We have to have a plan.
Ruby: Well, why didn’t you say that in the first place! You’re such a show off with your big words. I know what our plan should be: we pounce on the bug!
Allegra: We have to be smart about it. We don’t want it to get away.
Ruby: I’m fast! I can get it on my first pounce!
Allegra: Slow down, Ruby. Let’s figure out what the bug is going to do first.
Ruby: I see it, I see it. I’m going to pounce!
Ruby: Hey! I called dibs!
Allegra: You snooze, you loose, little one!
Ruby: I’m going to chase you off this table, Allegra. This bug was supposed to be mine!
Ingrid: Do I have to come over there?
Allegra and Ruby: Nothing to see here, Mom…

I’m sorry for your loss. Ruby was a beautiful girl.

Great team work, around here it is every cat for him/her self.
Allegra and Ruby brought me my first smile of the day! Too cute.
That is awesome sounds like what my cats say to each other. lol Sid goes nuts over the mice & Abbey loves the
MOL! Nobody teams up around here – as a matter of fact, I seem to the only fly catcher (and eater) around here!
