It was worth getting eaten alive by mosquitoes.
Little Braveheart was willing to come closer for a wiggling flag, than a wiggling stick. 😀
The bit of fur visible at the bottom of the picture is Potato Beetle, who really, really wanted cuddles!
I didn’t stay too long, though. Tabby was hanging around, and I spotted their even more elusive sibling making several attempts to get to the freshly refilled food container. I didn’t want to keep any cats from being able to eat!
