Sorry I missed this comment, Cathy - I just love the image of you and Poot hunting through the room for an excaped condemned moth! This late summer, I had at least a pair of beautiful luna moths resting on the siding of my loft balcony - but even 'tho I know they have but a week to live, in their moth stage, I could not bring myself to 'sacrifice' them to my boys. I can give them wax worms without a pang of regret, for the loss of the worm's life - but just can't do it with moths (well - not exactly true - I can do it, with 'Indian meal moths' ... lol!). Here's a link to some of the photos I've gotten, of the moths:

or copy and paste:

Would love to see a photo of Pootie with her prize!
