open season

The other day we had our warmest day of the year so far. The temperature reached 75 degrees! Yahoo!! And that means one thing, moth season is upon us!! Sure enough that same evening, the big hunt began. Opening day yielded four moths taken. Nahum chased down two average sized ones, and Willow bagged the big moth! Earlier in the night, Theo got himself a weenie one.

On the second night of moth season, the action was fast and furious. Nahum was working hard to land the giant-moth. Then out of nowhere came Willow! He never saw her coming - in super-fast action she knocked hin right off the desk and took over as frontrunner in the hunt. In the flurry of Nahum falling from the desk, the moth got away.

To console herself after losing the big one, Willow made short work of a few weenie moths on the front porch.

Meanwhile, the cats wait expectantly in their moth blinds - waiting to pounce on the next unsuspecting moth and I scheme ideas of how to stock the indoor moth population.
