I know what you mean about our little bug-eaters being gross. I read a
few weeks ago where someone's ferret likes to chase butterflies. I saw a
moth sitting on my bed and thought "Hey, maybe Pete would like to chase
butterflies too." (Moths aren't that much different) Anyway, I put him on
the bed and off he went. He chased the little guy around for a minute.
Then, all of a sudden, chomp, chomp, _GULP_!...No More Little Moth!!! I
couldn't believe it! For the next few minutes every time I would look at
him I would think, "He's too cute to eat bugs!" Until I started thinking
about whether the moth was toxic to him. Fortunately, he didn't get sick.
Needless to say, I haven't been pointing out moths anymore!
cj - "Oh no! Not the little moth!"
pete - "He was good, Mom! Can I have another?"
