This morning one of the male kittens stole some scrambled egg off my husbands plate at breakfast. He ran off with it growling and eating at the same time. Since my 8 week old foster kittens are growing, I will have to increase their food. So I opened a can of moist canned cat food for all 9 to share. They ate their fill and all passed out into a food coma. With the kitten shots and multiple worming they are a bit under weight. They were born outside to a mom cat that was run over. While they received colostrum they were burdened with parasites and worm load. They are on the mend and happy being pampered and fed well.
I happened to find this huge black beetle pondering across my neighbors basement floor. She almost weighed as much as a full spool of quilting thread and was the size of the palm of my hand. She is a black rain beetle and is a rare find indeed. They take 13 years to mature and both sexes emerge just before rain and fall to mate then burrow underground again. The female does not fly only the male, so that was why she was walking in the basement. She was the neatest bug I have found yet. I set her outside to find a mate in the woods.
