    Quick story...Chloe brought a strange, very slow moving beetle inside yesterday.

When I gently touched the backside of this strange looking bug...it hissed! Hysterically, Chloe hissed back. I got five more hisses out of the beetle, each one met with a hiss from Chloe. I quit after five, because I didn't want to antagonize the little bug any further. It was a "hiss off". So cute!
    You're a brave one... I would have freaked out at the first hiss and gone screaming. Was it striped? I don't know where you live but I found a pic of a hissing beetle taken by someone in California. You can go to bugguide.net to identify which type of beetle it was. Here's a pic of the hissing beetle.ELQZALSZ1L0ZRHSR3Z6RAL4RLHKREL0RELKROZQR3ZKROZ3LALXZQH2RBLERDLIZAL7ZKHPRKHMR.jpg

    It looked very similar to that Eastcoastmom, minus the stripes. It was strange looking, not your run-of-the-mill California beetle. Thanks for posting that picture! I'm not brave at all, I just hate killing anything. The only insects I kill are ants, because they're just too darm small to collect!

    When bugs show up.....I vacate the area! Bugs are why I don't like picnics! No thank you!

    Re: For animal lovers

    I grow catnip, and it's much stronger than the other. If anyone wants some, it's just about time to do my mailing! Ok, shay, you twisted my arm; I took some individual pics a week ago, but now they look totally different. I'll go get more new ones. I've been having to supplemental feed the littlestone with a syringe (she hates the itty bitty bottle) There were 2 needing help, but one is about caught up; the little girl seems plenty healthy but is just so much smaller than the rest of them she gets pushed aside and stuck on a front boobie without much milk every time.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.
