Buddy, the pacifist

Buddy is very good at seeking out a bug or spider - - - then he just sits there, fascinated. I know he has "prey" when over time, his head swivels and he crouches lower and lower to get a good look at it.

If I have anything to say, I grab it and it's immediately promoted to "bug heaven".

Now, house flies are another story. He will leap and pirouette, smacking the window with his sizable paws til he wins.
I try to get the fly before Buddy does - he eats them. They don't go down easy and he chokes and gags his way til he's successful. I sit choking and gagging watching - mercy!

Slim's passion is swallowing wood bees. It is not a pretty site. She stalks them and jumps at them, much like Buddy does, and is so proud when she catches one. But it certainly does not go down easily for her either.
