I know there are laws against cruelty to animals,but
what about grasshoppers. If they are protected, we're in a world of trouble. I had left the door ajar to the back porch this morning,while we drink our morning cup of coffee. Minnie and Lucky have so much fun running in and out and all around the porches,I couldn't bring myself to shut the door too soon.I got busy with my morning ritual of this and that, and forgot the door. The next thing I knew, Minnie had a new playmate. I don't think she wanted to eat him, as much as she wanted to play with him. It was so cute watching her catch and release him, just so she could chase him again, I never give it a thought as to how the poor grasshopper might feel.I guess it could have been worse. Minnie could have eaten him.I never thought they would be that tasty, since I remember as a child, that they would eat big holes in our tobacco crop. I remember them spitting the tobacco juice on us. I just figured from that point on that all grasshoppers spit tobacco, but then I guess it has to do with what they eat. Hopefully,Minnie will tire of his company, before she gets that hungry.
