More views of my bug friend

Where are you going green bug?

Our friends think you might be a kaydid. We will have to look it up on Wikipedia and see!

Almost got you!!

I just played with the bug. I never ate him. He runned away and hid in some weeds. Big weeds.

He looked about the right size to fit in my mouth though.

I am sending big hugs to my special friends at Kodak, Winton & 3Perf . Sweet Winton went to the bridge today, and I know his family will miss him lots. He had chronic renal failure and his mom did a super job of loving him, and giving him fluids and special foods. But he was tired and let her know that he was ready of the bridge. Winton I hope there are lots of bugs at the bridge for you. I am going to send some hugs to your family, I know they miss you lots.


  1. That bug would have been a crunchy good mouthful, Poppy Q, but I'm glad you saved him to play another day!

    I'm gonna run over and hug Winton's family. I'm sorry you lost your friend, Poppy.

  2. That bug looks like he would be a good treat to eat. Bet he's very crunchy.

  3. That Katydid could have been a Katydone if you eated him, Poppy Q. You must not have been hungry to pass up such a crunchy snack!

    We are very saddened to hear about Winton.

  4. I didn't realise yesterday just how BIG this bug is Poppy. It was very sweet of you not to eat him or even break him a little bit. He will be able to play another day!

    We left some purrs for Winton's family. It is so sad you lost your friend Poppy, he was a lovely lad.

  5. You are so smart Poppy Q! You know that if you eat the bug, you can no longer play with him. Bugs are more entertaining when they aren't in your tummy!

  6. Such a sad day Miss Poppy, our hearts hurt for Winton's Mommy.

  7. I was very sorry to read about Winton, too. You are a very thoughtful kitty.

  8. Oh that's a pretty photo cavalcade of you and your green friend, Mr Grasshopper isn't it? The last photo is absolutely adorable:)

  9. Your bug friend looks like he'd be super fun to whap. hee hee

    We are so sorry to hear about Winton. :(

  10. I bet he tastes good! Otherwise, he'd probably be named a katydon't!

  11. I've never seen a green bug that big before! I wonder what he'd taste like? *giggles*
    I'm so sorry you lost your friend, Winton. Mom and I will send him and his family lots of purrs!


  12. Well, at least you have a friend to play with tomorrow.

    Sorry about your your friend Winton. It hurts to lose a friend.

  13. Julie and Poppy Q,

    I can't thank you enough for your kind words and support! It has meant so much to me. I'm so sorry I haven't written back before now! I just wanted you to know how much your caring words have meant to me! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!

  14. You're a good girl for playing so gentle with that bug.

    I'm sorry it was time for your friend to go to the bridge.
