Birds and moths and lizards. Oh My!

I just love cats. We always had them while I was growing up. My two cats are so sweet and silky. Now, let me tell you why I want to shoot them. They love to bring creatures into the house that have NO business being indoors. You probably remember the post about the dead bird in my bed. Well, they just keep sharing their friends with the family. Like this mutant moth...

Ugly thing, isn't it! But this first picture doesn't show just how big it really is so I included a shot of "it" with the cat. Look how small Elvis' paw is in comparison.

Pretty creepy. And the sound of it's wings beating against the floor sent chills down my spine. Then Elvis caught another bird...and brought him inside to share with his brother. The poor guy was wounded pretty bad. I just picked him up in a paper towel and put him under a bush out front. Jason said he'd just suffer and die out there but I couldn't bring myself to kill it or to let the cats continue to torment it.
This bird is the only play thing they've brought in that didn't totally gross me out. Just so long as it stays out of my bed! Then just this morning I found these little dead treasures in the downstairs hall....
In case you can't tell, those are lizards. I actually stepped on one of the little corpses before I was aware they were there.

I was hoping someone could put me in touch with the Kitty Whisperer so she can tell my cats that they need to play with their friends outside only. My schedule is pretty flexible so any time she can meet with them is good.

Oh... I remember the hunting days. You know Elvis is sharing his captured prey with you too. After all, who could resist playing with something that sounds like that?
