There's a moth - at least, I think it's the same one - that has been coming in most evenings. It has even been known to be flapping about in here during the day (isn't that unusual moth behaviour? I thought they were only around in the evenings and night times). We almost got a photo of it the other day when it settled itself on Kero's nose. Definately a "shouldabeenakodakmoment" there!
I guess Kero decided the moth was here to play with him. He was playing with it yesterday. The moth would flap around near him, and he'd pretend to snap at it.
That's when it happened... I think he got carried away with excitement or something. Either that or the moth didn't fly the direction he thought it would. But whatever the reason it ended up in his mouth.
He spat it right out with a noise that sounded very much like the word "yuck!" But after being in his mouth it's mobility was somewhat lacking. After it happened the second time the poor moth flapped no more!
Kero was devistated! He nudged at it. He pawed at it... He even tried picking it up... Nothing worked.
One thing did happen though... The moth ended up in pieces from the nudging and being pawed at. So there were bits of moth all over the floor! Yuck!
Kero spent most of yesterday evening sulking about it. Bless him!
I'm not sure if it was because he was sulking or if the moth being in his mouth gave him a bit of an upset stomach, but he was off his food yesterday evening too. I don't think he was sick or anything (if he was he made it outside) but he didn't eat anything, which is unusual in the evenings since it's usually then that he wants his food.
I doubt this has taught him that moths are neither toys nor snacks though. LOL!
And - as far as I'm aware - no new moths came to visit last night... So it's quite possible that it was - as I suspected - the same moth coming to visit each time.
