Grass Hopper (and Cat)

Description:

I saw these two guys just outside a busy market in Thailand. The cat was memorized by this grass hopper that obviously was very curious of the cat. It was amazing to watch two completely different creatures act so friendly towards each other.

My red tabby just likes to point at things (yes, like a dog - he can even get the stance right). Maybe this one is the same. There it is!!

You never can tell about cats... Once a friend offered my cat a "pinkie mouse" from some she had purchased to feed her snake. (**shiver**) After considerable sniffing, my cat kissed the top of the baby mouse's head and walked away. My friend looked at me in disgust and said "What kind of cat does THAT?" LOL!
