Amy’s prompt for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Everyday Moments.
The other day, kitty saw a praying mantis on the terrace. And after a lot of chasing and rolling on the floor with the mantis, she let him go. (I think the mantis was a he.) Okay, she did not let him go, the mantis just hopped before kitty could even blink her eyes.
In the photo above, it does look like Kitty and the mantis are giving each other a high-five but… seeing is not believing. The mantis was in an ‘attack mode’ while kitty was in a playful mood.
Kitty was angry for a while, after all, her ‘starters’ (before lunch) escaped from her pawches? (paw+ clutches) After singing praises such as “good kitty” and “beautiful kitty”, she seemed to calm down. (She really likes it when I tell her that she’s beautiful!)
