'Hopper Hunting.

Eric: When it is hot and the grass is dried out, we get lots of grasshoppers.

Flynn: We like to hunt them out but I don't know why I look under the grass mower because they like the sun not the shade. Maybe I will find them under there one day.

Eric: If you see them you have to grab them quick before they hop off again.

Flynn: Hey! Get off my back. I'm meant to be eating you, not giving you a piggy back.

Simba said...

Those hoppers would be mighty interesting, I think.

Hoppers sound like fun hunting!

HotMBC aka The Hotties said...

Hoppers are fun to hunt. They even get in our house sometimes and I get to hunt them inside too.
By the way Flynn, black must be the new gray from what you said.

Why not bring a live one into the house?

Au and Target said...

Mousies one day and grasshoppers the next. Every cat should live in the country!

Sweet Praline said...

Every once in a while, one of those grasshoppers gets inside and then it's loads of fun!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow you are both such awesome hunters - it is so cool that you have so many cool things to go after! And wow, grasshoppers are hard to catch - our mom can't even do it when one gets in the house (which lucky for her isn't often!)

Fin said...

Psst... Mom is terrified of hoppers!

Re-Illy Unique said...

Laila and Minchie said...

Looks like that 'hopper was hopping a free ride on your back Flynn.

Nico, Simon and JayJay said...

That's right, Flynn - NO free riders!! Oh we wish your Mum had gotten a video of you guys stalking those hoppers - that would have been pawesome!!

We LOVE it when one of those little buggies gets into our house - KILL!! KILL!! KILL!!

Have a happy day!!

Sparkle said...

Grasshoppers look like they're very fun to hunt! And I bet they are tasty too.

Kea said...

When you find them, do you crunch them very quickly or let them "hop" around in your mouth first? (Our human says, "Eeewwwwww, yuck!") ;-P

MoMo said...

Like you, I hunt insects and lizards, but I don't eat them. I prefer my wet food anyday.

DailyGs said...

Grasshoppers make for some great sport, don't they, boys?!

And wouldn't that be kitty-back, Flynn?

The Monkeys said...

That hopper has a lot of nerve jumping on your back! We hope you ate him for that!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Ummm...boys.....do they taste like chicken??? MOL

Great last picture of the hopper taking a ride!

Daisy said...

Do they taste very delicious?

Madi and Mom said...

Morning Eric and Flynn,
You two know how to have fun. I've never actually hunted for them outside but every so often one gets in the house. Boys those things are quick and hop high. Mom knows they are in the house when I get that intent stare and my bottom lip quivers and a little squeak comes out...only thing is I don't tell her where they are.

Sammy and Andy said...

ABBY said...

Oh Eric and Flynn
Momma is afraid of hoppers and she screams like a little baby when she sees one and makes Dad come and squash them!

The Crew said...

We've never seen a real 'hopper. Thank you for letting us live vicariously through you.

Kari said...

We know why you're checking under the grass mower: mousies! Hoppers can be great fun but hardly anything can best a nice succulent mousie.
Enjoy your adventures,dear boys. We "innies" can only dream.
