Poor Moonpie is now terrorized.(Update)

This is the culprit:

This is one of the cat teasers I have. They love to play with all of them. Up until yesterday, both of them loved this one too. Now Moonpie runs like she stole something when she sees it.
I do not tease her with it. She obviously is scared of it now. I don't remember anything that seemed to scare her her when she was playing with it the last time. Tater ain't skeered.

Maybe Tater chased her with it while I was asleep or she had a nightmare. Moonpie does bite at the feathers when it's just still. Let it move though and whoosh. It's like the flying monkeys from Oz are after her.
I believe cats see things we can't. There is obviously something lurking with it. Maybe I should throw it out to get rid of the bad juju.

Moonpie has returned to her normal self. As long as the Feathered Fiend was out, she was skittish and kept one eye on it. I put it in a closet and will give it to my brother. He has 4 cats.
I still have no idea what got into her. I considered what all of you suggested but I don't think those were plausible scenarios.
Just being a kitteh. Inscrutable.

Moonpie and Tater snuggled for the cold:

Moonpie is in the back giving me the eye.

Could We Have The First Named Atlantic Tropical System Of 2016 In January? Jeebus

Yes, I clicked on my Twitter feed and saw a notice from the National Hurricane Center about a subtropical system in the Atlantic Ocean. Arenít these folks supposed to be heading on vacation or to New Orleans for the American Meteorological Society meeting (#AMS2016)? Yet, the graphic below tells the story.

Lawd! The weather is beyond screwed up.

I do believe I perceive a threat to me & others from neo-Confederate mad about the flag coming down.

I weighed in on the ridiculous notion that SC should spend eleventy billion dollars to display the flag that was removed. It was in the comment section of The State paper.
Carl weighed in on my comment. Here is the exchange:
My original comment:
This is too damn much. With all the problems in SC, spending this much money is absurd. There are ways to display the flag that don't cost this much. This is spite and malice because the flag was removed.
Trust me when I say that those who cheered that flag's removal have no idea just what they did - aside from accepting a pro-white supremacist viewpoint that legitimate Confederate heritage defenders rejects.
And don't presume that lowering one flag at a 30 foot pole behind a monument will mean the end of a permanent display of the flag flying over Columbia....you'll know what I mean by next summer.
My reply:
Listen Stonewall, the war is over. The flag is a historic relic that does not represent all of SC.Nobody is telling you that you can't display it. They are saying that on state grounds that belong to everyone, it should not be flown as a symbol for the state. I have several ancestors that died for the Confederacy. I have no desire to canonize them.
As far as white supremacy, you can deny it all you want. However, it is used as a symbol for that movement. You may not think so but that is a fact.
As far as your veiled staement about 'you'll know what I mean' about some coming event, are you gonna burn the city again? Graffiti? Tantrums? A 1000 ft flagpole flying the flag? The mind reels.
When the war was over, Robert E.Lee said this ""Abandon your animosities and make your sons Americans."
He didn't say nurse your grievances and never stop fighting. I'll defer to him.

So, I believe that is a threat of some action. I'm sure my name zoomed to the top of whatever list they keep. Meh. Bullies and cowards.
