Tattle Tail Thursday

Dad owes Maggie a big apology. The other night Maggie, Josie and Huggy Bear were all huddled around the entertainment center. It seemed apparent that there was a bug they were hunting. Dad came over and inspected. He even pulled out a flashlight. But he couldn't see anything. (Of course not, he's not a cat!) So he figured we were after the cables and cords behind the TV cabinet. Then Maggie got excited and started clawing at the carpet. So Dad got the squirt bottle and sprayed Maggie to make her stop. Well Huggy Bear kept vigil, and a few minutes later this HUGE Palmetto bug (aka roach) ventured out. Huggy Bear was quick to pounce, swat and play with it. Dad scooped it up, praised Huggy Bear, and gave us all treats for a successful hunt. But we still feel that Maggie deserves an apology for the water -- even if she was digging at the carpet.
