I got so excited this morning when I thought I spotted a bug in the kitchen. I haven’t seen any bugs since it got cold outside, so I felt like I had hit the jackpot spotting this one. I immediately crouched down and focused on My prey, getting ready to pounce.
As I prepared to pounce, I noticed that the bug wasn’t moving. Then I looked closer and noticed that the bug wasn’t even a bug. It was just a piece of plant or something that had probably come in on one of the Guardians’ shoes. I felt completely deflated after I made the realization.
I laid there on the floor for at least 20 minutes, completely bugless. I stared at the bit of plant and tried to turn it into a bug with My mind, but that didn’t seem to do anything.
Eventually, Brother Oliver walked by with his tail swishing back and forth. I decided that it might be just as fun to attack that tail as it would have been to attack a bug. I jumped up, ran over, and started batting Brother Oliver’s tail around between My paws, and do you know what he said? He said, “Hey! Stop bugging me!” That’s when I decided that Brother Oliver must be able to read minds.
