While watching TV tonight I was startled a bit. About 11 pm I hear a wap wap wap wap real intense like someone knocking frantically on the sliding glass doors to my back porch. Dang that can't be would have to break through the locked screen door to the porch first, security/motion light didn't kick on either.
So I turn on other lights don't see anybody or anything.............one of the cats wants in is standing by the door, but never made that noise before..............still warm enough for the AC and I keep the sliding doors shut and locked unless the weather is nice and I leave them open or cracked so the cats can go in and out to the back porch to lounge and to a litter box in the daytime and until bedtime at night.
So after waiting watching and listening I see nothing and open the door, cat comes flying in still nothing so I proceed out the door to the back porch to look around (well me and a .44 Spl). All clear.................still can't figure out the "Knocking".............
A few minutes later I see that cat and look closer...............she had somehow wrapped one of those sticky fly catcher tubes with tape you pull out around her back leg and somehow got it wrapped several turns. I unraveled it and threw it away. Must have got her in a hissy fit when she couldn't shake it off
I had hung it on a 5ft tall box that holds a roll of garden plastic cover because there was no where else to hang it with all metal and screens.
While in Walmart today I decided to buy a pack of them to see if they would help get rid those damn little fruit flies. I have put a glass bowl out with cider vinegar and a couple drops of liquid dish soap in a couple places and caught quite a few in the kitchen. But thought maybe they were coming in off the back porch since I can't find where they might be coming from in the house. They like bananas and that is where the cider vinegar is next to, my banana stand. Even when no bananas are in the house I see them. I hate the pesky little bastards and they are quick too..............
Anyhow, it was nothing and I'm glad cause it is about bedtime for my tired 63 year butt. I need my beauty sleep.
