Fortunately when she notices a bug, she makes a distinctive hunting "chirp" that alerts me to jump up and remove the intended victim.
Sunday - I caught 3 lady bugs & 1 unidentified flying something - and moved them onto the deck - while hotly pursued by Stella!
P.S. We've only had a lizard (skink) in the house once - I've never seen Goldie cat move so fast - as she chased it through the rooms. I trapped the lizard by throwing a magazine over it - it froze in the "dark" - and I could scoop it up and toss it onto the deck.
I would do something similar with little birds my Grandmother's cat would bring into her house...but I used a hand towel or dishrag. After shutting the cat in another room of course.
