Subject: 2nd day of moth fun
In reply to: Cathy C. & Princess P. 's message, "Moths for Pootie" on 15:37:08 07/27/07 Fri

We had another night of fun catching moths together as a team. I see that she is refining her technique by sneaking up on them. At first she'd run full speed and leap at them, which of course didn't work. Now she stalks them and tries to get close enough to grab them with her little paws. But today the moths have to go. I figured out they must be coming from a box with some blankets in that needed mending. I'll remove the box, wash the blankets and probably the next few nights use my battery operated zapper that looks like a tennis racket. Unless someone wants to lend me 3 or 4 little SFS to exterminate the little moths naturally............... ;-)
