Eric's Day Flashback - Hopper Hunting.

This week the flashback comes from July 2010 and is called:

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.

That hopper hitching a ride was pretty funny, at least to us!

We agree with Brian!

Maybe the hopper thought it was hiding behind you!

Grasshoppers are nice and crunchy! I used to eat them - THEN I discovered moths which I preferred for a long while. Mother Nature gives us plenty of FREE treats! Eric and Flynn look like a wonderful hunting team.

Love, Sammy

I bet grasshopper hunting is a lot of fun, Angel Eric and Flynn. Well, except for when they try to hitch a ride. It's always wonderful to see these memories. Thank you for sharing this with us!

Katie Isabella said...

I would LOVE to see that, boys. Maybe I can help?

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Do you know our Mom is afraid of hoppers. WE are glad we don't get too many of them around here. We get enough as it is!

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

OMC, Mommy does not like grasshoppers! She would freak if we caught one. MOL

Layla Morgan Wilde ( Cat Wisdom 101) said...

Tasty treats and memories. We get cicadas in August which is better than any cat toy for Odin!

Team Tabby said...

Thank you for stopping by our blog to wish us a Happy Canada Day! Hope you were able to catch lots of those "hoppers"

Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs, Spike William

Colehaus Cats said...

Oooo, we know what those grasshopper things are! Even though we are indoor kitties, sometimes one hops into our house and then, the fun begins! Have a good day!

MeezerMews&FrecklesWoofs said...

Basil Widdairs said...

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

We dont find many grasshoppers here annymore. Mebbe we ate them all!

Jean Neilson said...

Hey there Flynn, you two are clever partners. Those grasshoppers are too fast for me. I even hop behind them but they don't think I'm a family member. Kali just watches them from a distance. She is afraid of bugs. MOL
