Feeding the cat.

Step one - wash cat's bowl and move to kitchen to get food.

Step two - notice the Gecko on the kitchen floor before the cat does, but fail to react quickly enough.

Step three - grab cat by tail (because cat's reaction time is quick) and remove him to another room and shut door.

Step four - spend a stoopidd amount of time chasing gecko around kitchen floor (usually I am Pretty good at catching to rescue lizards).

Step five - finally catch gecko minus wriggling tail, and remove it to the garden.

Step six - let the cat out who eats the tail and complains about the rest of the gecko missing.

Step seven - put cat meat into cat bowl and give to cat.

@SS - sounds like my weekend - it was unusually warm & all the bugs came out - into the house! Where Stella is a relentless hunter - she will literally demolish the house to track down (and play with) a bug! And she is big enough to do some damage. Fortunately when she notices a bug, she makes a distinctive hunting "chirp" that alerts me to jump up and remove the intended victim.

Sunday - I caught 3 lady bugs & 1 unidentified flying something - and moved them onto the deck - while hotly pursued by Stella!

P.S. We've only had a lizard (skink) in the house once - I've never seen Goldie cat move so fast - as she chased it through the rooms. I trapped the lizard by throwing a magazine over it - it froze in the "dark" - and I could scoop it up and toss it onto the deck.

I am keeping my daughter(23) from dressing up our poor cat Polly again. She has bought her a sweater 'for the cold, mother', a sparkling red christmas tie and a headpiece of a kind of reindeer horns......ahem

Preparing myself for my journey to Egypt at the end of the week.

I would do something similar with little birds my Grandmother's cat would bring into her house...but I used a hand towel or dishrag. After shutting the cat in another room of course.

Plus the web was damaged and not being repaired. We feared that nature had taken its course and she had expired. So we decided to take down the Caution warning tape (which protected her during Halloween) and move the web - with her in it - along with her egg case to some bushes - to give the young 'uns some protection & shelter to hatch and grow up in. Well - we snagged the top of the web onto a branch and tugged it free of the porch railing - whereupon she began to move! By the time we got to the designated nursery bush, she was on top of the branch and heading towards us! The branch/web/spider combination was hurriedly placed in the bush & we ran for it!

Once my heart rate has dropped a bit, I'll go back & visit the bush to check on the family!
I miss her very much when I pass the front door and reflexively look out the side light to check on her.

Would this be a bad time to mention I've let a live black widow crawl back and forth from one of my hands to the other?

I have an hypothesis that most animals won't harm you if you don't harm them. I know that doesn't always hold true, but I've been lucky so far. I've also held a scorpion, but that was in a pet store.

Christian used to bring us all sorts of surprises—like freshly slaughtered baby bunny heads to decorate the middle of the family room rug. He doesn't do that anymore. Doesn't do much of anything anymore. He's 20 years old and moving kind of slow these days.

Aw, that would be such a great photo.... especially with the little reindeer horns headpiece.

I hope you have a great time on your trip to Egypt. Is it for fun or for work?

Right now, I am being lazy and enjoying the rest of my morning coffee.

Polly is a sweet animal and a huntress. There's this piece of paper on the fridge, where her catch, which she brings into the house, is noted. So far:
10 mice, half alive +several creeping crawlies+ 1 blackbird, 2 finches, 1 tomtit.

Thanks for the wishes, Dreams.
I'm going to Egypt for fun, for two weeks; from a child on I wanted to see the pyramids for myself, and the excavations in the Valley of the Kings and all.

Tiger just left the mouse guts in the middle of the floor in the bathroom...which I usually found in the middle of the night by stepping on them.

Thank you. I admit that at the time, I was slightly envious on reading that he was going.

Just made a batch of dip (cheese, beef, onions, tomatoes) then decided I wasn't really hungry, so getting ready to settle in for a few hours playing Skyrim while drinking a nice, nutritious glass of milk.
