Grasshoppers on Dumbar Street

Lately our weather has cooled down to the low 90's. I've turned off the air conditioner and have been leaving the back sliding glass door open when we are home. Last night as we were watching TV, I heard strange sounds coming from the game room. The sounds increased so I got up to check it out. A grasshopper was in the game room and Mindy, our Himalayan Siamese cat was chasing it. Si, our other Siamese, got up from his nap and came in to check out all the noise too. So Mindy and Si were both chasing the grasshopper.
Trixie, our little papillon, decided she didn't want to be left out of all the fun came in and watched the cats chase the grasshopper. As the cats were playing with the grasshopper, it jumped and Trixie jumped. In one swallow the grasshopper was gone.
It's not safe to be a grasshopper on Dumbar Street!
