Those stink bugs make my skin crawl and when I see one I do everything in my power to capture it and flush it before it has a chance to release it's stink.
Mazy is very good at pointing them out to me without disturbing them, but Queen Eva has not yet learned.....until maybe today.
I saw her stalking something, so of course I went over to see what she was up to. Just as I got there she reached out her paw and patted the bug (before I could stop her).
It was a tentative pat, but it was enough. After the pat she stuck her nose down to smell it, and her recoil was....hilarious. Usually I am shuddering too hard to get any kind of amusement out of a stink bug, but Queen Eva's wrinkled nose look of disgust was too much for me, I collapsed in laughter even before hurrying to remove it.
Now though, delayed reaction has set in and my scalp is crawling in memory of seeing and smelling the disgusting thing.
