Here is the last foster kitten out of 9. We decided to keep her after giving away all the others. She was not my first choice but she grows on you. She is naturally floppy and rolls on her back when picked up. She is very soft and people crazy. We named her Cotton for her super soft coat.We think she might have some Ragdoll in her family tree. She is also, like her littermates, fearless of the other cats and the dogs.
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.
