The thing with spiders is that they seem to have eight of everything! Eight hairy little legs, eight lives and eight beady little eyes arranged in rows to get the best view of their world. Well to my two eyes, these wee beasites should not frequent our space. Their space is the garage and the veggie patch. I have seen a few bigguns galloping around there rounding up the rouge insects that get out of line. But it is fair to say that this little fella deserved to be caught and put outside again because he actually ran at me, raising his cephalothorax and waving his pedipalps, like he was going to taste me. I was fascinated of course and not a little bit scared, even when he tried to talk his way out of the glass by playing dead!
Mr.Zeus the ever faithful SecuriCat was interested, but said that he would have to conduct a risk assessment first before anyone should capture it and promptly left the lounge for his notebook and pen and came back herrumphing because he had been ignored. He then proceeded to write his report from the safety of the cat post. Well, I suppose, only fools rush in. That would be Momma then as ManSlave was quaking in his boots. He was comforting Lillibet and Faith, apparently!!!! Hmmm
Well, out of the door the little fella went, he bid Momma farewell and ran back to his family behind the garage door. Talking of doors.... We have had a new pane of glass fitted with a little black Devon Rex Kitten on it. Momma designed it of course and a nice man made it for her. It has a little butterfly and a heart and our house number. When it was installed, Mr. Zeus thought it was a real cat and spent the whole afternoon doing his SecuriCat job of protecting the family from this monstrous black cat with green eyes. He wasted so much energy growling and grumbling at it that by the evening, he was thoroughly worn out. He even had Faith going at one point as she thought she was in for a bit of 'Stud Cat' only to find out it was a pretend cat and a pretend butterfly. She disappeared upstairs with a big sigh and preceded to beat up Lillibet for asking questions.
I think sometimes, I live in a house of crazy cats and humans. I am, of course, purrrrfect in every way!
