I was working at my computer when I heard a strange buzzing noise from the living room. It took a few moments for it to register. When I went to investigate, I saw Tashi & Mani crowded together by the window. On the window sill was a gigantic buzzing bug with an intimidating yellow and black color scheme. I think my heart skipped a couple beats and I may have felt faint. I shooed the Miaos away and hurried to get my jar. When I got back, it became clear that the bug must have been wounded because it was still by the window, not acting aggressive but just buzzing. I took it outside. It didn’t leave the jar immediately so I’m just leaving the jar in the front yard for now. I hope the bug makes it, but at the same time I’m terrified that it is some kind of mutant poisonous stinging insect that came to scout out the Miao House in preparation for mass invasion.
I checked Tashi & Mani for signs of insect stings but they both seem comfortable. Past experience has made me paranoid.
And where was the Batcat during all of this? Napping on my bed in his fleecy nest!
Can anyone identify the bug from these photos? Please tell me it is a harmless buzzy bug that eats pollen and not kitties.
