Well this AM, while brushing my teeth, I noticed a spider in the bathroom. Now, I respect all animals, including spiders, but I’d rather stay away from them. Spiders just don’t look friendly to me lol. They freak me out! Needless to say, the cats were having a blast. Dillan was just batting it like there was no tomorrow. I felt bad for the thing. Hubby took it away since I was yelling so much in panic lol. Then I felt bad for the cats because they were really having fun. But, they were going to kill that thing. And really, the thing had nowhere to go..so not fair. But then I felt horrible for my kitties. I keep remembering Abby’s health issues and how I want to make him happy all the time and just felt bad that I took that special form of entertainment from him.
Ggrrr….have you guys been in that situation before or is it just my pregnancy hormones doing this to me lol…

Oh by the way, Abby is doing great! I am still scared……and  just keep thinking something bad will happen to him but he is doing really really well. He’s got his eye on a small wild bunny with a broken leg :-)

OMG how big was the spider???
I love animals dear but I sure hate bugs!...don't blame you for being scared, not hormones at all!

Honey, the spider wasn't so big. It'd say it was a medium sized spider? Hubby didn't kill it since spiders are actually pest control. I just don't like their looks :-) ew..lol

Actually, PrettyKitty is on to something.  Some times in toy stores they have these soft rubbery bugs that are squishy.  My cats love to play with them.  Get small ones so they  can bat them around and toss them up in the air.....as much fun for them as the real thing.

Oh, poor lil bunny with the broken leg....I hope he's able to run faster than Abby and Dillan :)  You know, PK that spider probably wasn't, but could've been a brown recluse. They, like black widows are very dangerous and if the kitties were playing with one and got bitten...well it would not be good.  So I am very glad your hubby disposed of it.  I hate spiders...any spiders, except the the squishy, little rubbery plastic ones :)

I know hon. I don't like spiders either. I honestly have no idea what kind of spider it was since I know very little about them, and what little I know is they can be dangerous and are ugly looking lol.
The kitties were having a lot of fun. I think they brought the spider into the bathroom. You know how cats like to offer gifts and stuff? Mine love to just bring lizards and now spiders up to us so we watch them play.

The bunny...oh I wish I could help that poor animal. It seems he has gotten used to it. It might be a birth defect since it still eats and moves. It just won't go too far from its "house" though. I think some other animal, like a bobcat will definitely take advatnage of that defect one day. Nature is RAW!
I would never let any of my cats get near any wild animal LOL. The bunny is safe hahahaha but it is funny to watch my cats' frustrations with the bunny!!

I will get them a plastic spider then......

Ugh...Abby's got some hairballs he wants to get rid of. I want to take him out to the yard so he eats grass. I do that with Dillan and it works. But as soon as Abby goes to the yard (always supervised and never by himself, of course) he just forgets all about hairballs and just starts stalking little animals lol......I'll have to do some hairball treatment at home.  I definitely have a high maintenance cat folks!

I have a little plastic wind-up lady bug that was at one point a happy meal prize.  It has string antennas that Fluffy loved to bite and toss the "bug" up into the air by them.  He hasn't been very playful, but I see that his bug is laying on its side....

I put him up on his cat tree today and he wanted down until I showed him a squirrel in the tree right outside the window; suddenly he was a young jungle cat, lol!
