    1. He doesn't know
      as his brain is slow
      that he would not last
      as the cats would eat him fast!

    1. I did! Well, I added a 'sorry!' to it...lol.... No grasshoppers for me. Although, when I was about 10 years old, I had pet caterpillars. They spun cocoons on my bedroom furniture and hatched later on. Oh geesh. That sounds so gross to me now! haha.

    1. Well, I'm not afraid of them, but they still aren't welcome. No insects allowed in the zoo. ha.

    2. When I lived in AR we used to get them come in under the back door and I cannot tell you what I did to them!

    3. So, you're scared of them because there could be an uprising? The Revenge of the Grasshoppers or something like that? lol....

      Delete
    4. Noooooo, just scared of jumpy runny insecty type things, spiders, grasshoppers, worms.... Wimp!

      Delete
    5. I'm not a fan of spiders. My fear has greatly diminished but I still don't do well with them. lol.... I had pet worms when I was a little girl. ha.

  11. I hope you directed him to the local ant hill. As the story goes he will find winter refuge there. :)

  12. The cats may not eat him but they just might use him for a play thing to bat around. I think I'd move on if I were him! ha

  13. No you can't come in unless you mind being a play thing for the cats. hahaha.
    Those things are the reason I refuse to go into a garden when it grows in. eek. Speaking of these creatures, I was purchasing Mums *yes finally* and I picked up a couple and as I was placing them on the cart to pay there happen to be a huge grasshopper sitting down in the middle of one. Well. I screamed and tossed the thing straight up. Some guy standing close caught it as it came down. My heart was flying.
    He started laughing when he realized why I threw the mum. Then he told me I scared it to death. Good! I said and I did not buy the one with the GHopper. :D I hate bugs of any kind.
