All God's Critters....

Got a place in our building, I guess.

There's a new friend in the building.

A cricket.

Perhaps this other friend will take care of it. Because by the time someone got around to calling someone else to take care of that friend (and this was after multiple viewings by multiple people), taking care of that friend was prohibited due to the season.

I'll take the cricket any day, but it's sure loud.

Hum, we've had bats too. They like the sink drain. Gross. No crickets that I can remember. They are noisy little buggers! Hope he gets tired of all that racket too.

Our cats eat crickets... that last leg dangling from a whisker is always tell-tale...

There was a church down the street from me, the pastor was a friend of mine. She had bats. Couldn't get rid of them. She had rats. A very helpful person dropped off a couple of cats to get rid of the rats. Didn't work, but they had kittens in the basement.

She started calling her church "Our Lady of Bats, Rats and Cats."

Honest.

I actually like bats, but I probably wouldn't want them swooping around my head in church...

Our cat Mollie likes to sit on the patio table on the front porch at dawn and dusk and try to catch bats. One morning I was talking to Fellow Traveler, when suddenly in the window behind her I spied Mollie making about a 4-foot vertical leap into the air, as if she were launching from a trampoline...I thought, "What?...." until I saw the gray shadow zipping away just out of reach.

I don't mind bats. I just prefer them staying a little higher in the sky. And not in church sanctuaries.

Church crickets, though, are fun. Unless, I suppose, you have to preach over them.;-)
