OMG! Spiders Everywhere!
Last night I encountered a wolverine in the back yard that almost attacked and me and my dogs, okay, maybe it wasn’t a wolverine, but still, it was creepy and scary as hell, so tonight I decided to take the dogs out the front door to avoid the killer wolverine. The dogs ran around, took care of business and I turned around to go back inside and that’s when I saw something above, and hanging from the door, a nest of baby spiders! Baby spiders everywhere!
Thousands of tiny baby spiders all over the door. Then the realization hit me that I had walked through the nest when I went outside – holy crap!! Instantly, I felt intensely itchy, like I’d been rolling around in a barrel of fiberglass insulation. Clearly those spiders were all over me. The only way back into the house was through that door. You can imagine my horror because it was horrifying!
If you come to visit you might not want to come to the front door. Just sayin’.
I’m pretty much resigned to waking up to a big mess in the kitchen tomorrow morning. A few minutes ago, I took the dogs out for their last walk of the night. so they could take care of business. No sooner do we get out into the yard, when I spotted a pair of glowing eyes in the dark, about 15 feet away between our pool and garden. I tell myself it’s just a cat all the while I’m yelling at the dogs to get back into the house. I raced up the back steps into the house, dragging the dogs in behind me. I don’t think any of them had a chance to take care of business and there’s no way in hell I’m going back out there again tonight. I’ll wait until the sun is up thank you very much.
Like I said, it’s probably a cat, or a raccoon, or a fox, or, more likely, a wolverine. Probably a wolverine. Or it’s the weird squirrel-eating-squirrel tail-leaving creature we have never been able to identify. Over the years we’ve found the squirrel tail evidence hanging in bushes and trees around our yard but even stranger is the fact that we’ve never found any tiny squirrel skeletons, just their tails.
It’s been quite a while since we’ve found any squirrel tails not attached to any squirrels. Maybe the mysterious squirrel eating creature makes an appearance every 5 years, eats a bunch of squirrels, leaves the tails behind, and goes back into whatever hole it crawled out of and hibernates for another 5 years. Sounds kind of like an episode of “X-Files” or “Supernatural”.
So you can see why I didn’t want to take a chance with the wolverine or mysterious squirrel eater. You never know when it’s going to graduate from eating squirrels to something bigger.
I don’t have any pictures of my cats to amuse you this week. It’s been busy here with getting back from traveling and doing all the house stuff that comes along with moving. The cats know something is up but they’re enjoying all the empty boxes and venturing into almost empty closets. Because, after all, it is all about them.
Meet Midnight, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week.
Midnight is a 10-year-old male domestic long hair mix whose humans could no longer take care of him so he’s at Lollypop Farm to find some new ones….or just one. One would be fine. He’s available free of charge to approved adopters, age 60 and over, through Lollypop Farm’s Seniors-for-Seniors program.
Meow Monday came and went last week without a post. It’s been pretty crazy here between the house stuff and my trip. Yes, the trip was totally amazing!
I received a new suitcase and the cats couldn’t resist checking it out.
