That leads me to today's drawing, which serves as our contribution for both Athena's Caturday Art blog hop, as well as for the daily Halloween Challenge, as today's prompt is spider/web. In honor of my spider hunters, always on duty and always on the lookout for those eight-legged freaks, I ended up with this:
I don't think this spider has much luck on its side. Once my furbabies catch sight of their leggy prey, it's usually just a matter of time before it ends up slapped around like a ping pong ball, and sometimes eaten. I'll admit, I always feel quite horrible watching my furbabies torture those poor buggers, but helping them would require far more bravery than I can usually muster.
Are any of our furiends out there spider hunters?
Happy Caturday, everybuddy!
Our Tip of the Day:Our furbabies, especially those of the feline sort, are known to stalk and chase and even eat bugs. This is actually normal, as it stems back to their instinct to hunt. And, what's more, did you know that most bugs are actually quite high in protein? Being obligate carnivores, no wonder our kitties are drawn to those bugs. Please do be cautious, though, as not only are there a handful of venomous bugs out there, but also some bugs can irritate your furbaby's intestinal tract. Although it depends on the individual kitty and bug in question, there is always the chance that your furbaby will eat a bug only to end up with vomiting and/or diarrhea. Although in some cases there is only a mild reaction, if your furbaby ends up with vomiting or diarrhea that is in any way severe or persistent, please consult a veterinarian. And, if your furbaby has a history of eating bugs and ending up with such symptoms, it might be best to make all attempts to keep them from eating those buggers.
