Another Wild-Kingdom Encounter

1:28 a.m. CDT

“Mom!  Wake up!  Now!  There’s something out there!”








“No I don’t know where.  That’s **your** job!!”












“I’m not sure I can stand this.  Please help me?”

“But it’s still out there.  No I don’t care about that kitsch little sculpture, I never liked it in the first place.  I’m telling you — IT’S OUT THERE!!”








“I just know that’s got to be good to eat.  Can I go get it?  Please?”

(Later that morning.)

“I shall never give up.”

About nadbugs

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.

    ahahahah The suspense builds up. Bugs, Im not sure froggies taste to good. (They pee pee.) But maybe that frog had an improtant missive for you. We may never know.

      4Cats, your comment gives me the confidence for another post. I’m going for it later today (work & energy permitting). As ever, thank you. For that boost you give me into the next installment and, also, because you just GET things. I meant for the suspense to build. It’s so neat for me that you’re on the receiving end. We have contact!

    Wonderful! More pictures of his hilarious white stockings. They really make me chuckle, thank you. He looks so serious and concerned about the intruder – I love his face in your first picture (frog-wakeup).
    And Bugs, like Sara said, I’ve had it on good authority that frogs DON’T taste good, but I know you’ll want to check that out for yourself. I had a cat that used to like nipping the rear ends of toads to hear them scream (yes, really), but he never ate them.

  3. Marcy Benham says:

    Lovely, just lovely, to be awakened at 1:30 am for a FROG!! I’ve never met a dangerous frog but….. I’m sure Bugs had your best interests at heart!

  4. nadbugs says:

    Good, isn’t it. Hard to stay pissed about it, really. And you never know, about those frogs. Don’t I remember they can be poisonous? Perhaps Bugs had an encounter with one in a prior incarnation, somewhere in the rain forest . . . . I feel another post coming on . . . . incoming, incoming . . . .

  5. the sequence of photos is just superb!! The shots of the legs coming out from behind the blinds….I am dying laughing!

    • nadbugs says:

      What **is** it about those white legs?? Automatic cuteness overload! But — I think we need to keep this from Bugs. He stands on his dignity, don’t you know.

  6. Wazeau says:

    I’m not convinced Bugs wants to EAT the frog… perhaps he wants to start a dating service?

  7. nadbugs says:

    Now wait just a minute. Does marriage mean nothing any more?

    Bugs and I are going to have to have a little sit-down about this. If he thinks he can just divorce me like that, he’s got another think coming.

    Plus there’s the prenup.

  8. Melanie says:

    I can see why a frog would be entirely too much temptation for you, Bugs! Just wait until a squirrel lands on the sill!

  9. Haha! I did the same thing this weekend when I saw a SNAKE! You sure are doing everything you can to alert your human. What was her problem? My Diddy did the same thing…ignored me.

  10. Sara says:

    Bugs, your white pants remind me of a guy named John Travolta who danced to ‘staying alive.’ Only in your case, the song goes, ” oh oh oh oh kilin the bug, killin the frog, oh oh oh oh feed me treeeeaaaaattts.”

  11. nadbugs says:

    This is too funny! Remember white patent-leather SHOES?

  12. Sara says:

    yeah my mom forced me to wear them. Along with barrets, and the command, “Sit like a lady!”

  13. Sara says:

    Hands in lap.

  14. melody says:

    Oh my goodness!! That is so Funny. The whole thing made me smile ear to ear. I just love it. My Piper just loves to look at the frogs outside the windows in my sunroom. She too gets excited over the frogs.
    You go Nadbugs!! I really like you!

  15. melody says:

    I will try and post a pic of my kitty doing the same thing…your Nadbugs is too cute.

  17. Nomi says:

    I saw you on Cat of the Day. I love your persistence in your hunting expedition. You are also very handsome by the way.

    • nadbugs says:

      Yes. It’s true. I am persistent and handsome. Very good of you to appreciate those qualities in me. Will you speak to human about this, please? I think she needs reminding sometimes.

  18. momsbusy says:
