So I was doing dishes, then I saw my cat playing with this Beatle thing, so I would like to know if I should be concerned or not. It sure looks pretty though! And the climate is about 75 degrees at night and it’s the first time I’ve ever seen a bug like this before.

This is an impressive Ten Lined June Beetle, and his fanlike antennae indicate he is a male. Ten Lined June Beetles make an audible squeaking noise known as stridulation when they are disturbed.
