The Return of Mom's Terror

Tillie: Guess what friends??? The BIG spider is back!!!
Well, him or one of his kin, and Mom is scared!!
She does not like spiders,especially BIG ones.
The downside of living just outside the city.
Purrsonaly, I like bugs.They're tasty,heehee

Mom noticed the spider on the outdoor lamp.

No wonder he likes it there,the light attracts bugs.
They even get inside the light! They must be vacuumed out.
You can see them by the blue arrow.
Mom recommends downward hanging lights,not
upward ones like we have.

I bet that spider is toasty warm too!!

Just waiting for dinner.
Wolf spiders hunt their dinner,they do not have webs.

This guy must have had a fight,he is missing a leg.
You can see where it should be ,from the arrow.
I don't think it slows him down any!!
Now,Mom wants him to go far away!!!!!!!!

Holy Crap!!

Wow! We have never seen a big wolf spider where we live, just little green ones and other small ones.

Spiders hunt bugs and keep their populations down. We would not want a spider of any size to crawl on us, but as hunters ourselves we respect any creature that has the skills to hunt down prey.

Oah I hate that!

Chesney Cats said...

Mama has goose bumps from the pictures! She HATES spiders of any size & she'd probably have a heart attack if she saw one that big!!

Forever Foster said...

Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Go away, scary spider!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. We have had a few problems auto-posting, too.

Millie said...

Tracey and Huffle said...

Um, we couldn't look at the photos - we had to scroll past really fast because mum is totally scared of spiders.

Mom says her mom used to have them ALL over the basement. They are very common around here. They run out but they usually try to avoid people. They don't go after you unless cornered. However... that never stopped any mom from standing on a chair and dropping something on top of the spiders.

mom has the chills now.


we hates spiders.

The Kitty Krew said...

Oh, gosh, next time you need a big warning on the post that there are icky close-up spider pictures involved! The Mommy hates spiders too. Too bad your mommy didn't let you go after it!

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

PS - Bugsy's home!

OMG! I just told my mom that I am with you liking spiders purrsonally, but then we scrolled down and OMG! That thing is HUGE! It is almost big enough to eat a Jelly Bean! Be careful!

Jasmim said...

"Wow! Spiders are really disgusting"
this is the thought of my mother ....

.... but I'm like you, I also like the bugs, and like to play with them ^^

He does seem rather large. I think even my mom would get all weird at one of those and I don't think I'd try to play with him, either. Remember the other day when I told you about my mom moving that pregnant spider somewhere? Well, don't tell my Aunt L, just in case she does wind up spending Sunday night with us, but Mom put the spider in the room when Aunt L will sleep!! Ha ha ha! And then a few days later she put lady spider's husband in there, too!

(OK, so they aren't real spiders, they're daddy longlegs, and they're very good at eating other spiders and things. That's why my mom never hurts them or puts them outside and won't let us tease them either. But I suppose secretly knowing about the spider family where my aunt might sleep is amusing enough!)

Cliff and Olivia said...

Dear Tillie, That's a giant spider (the lagest spider here is about one and a half inches, is rarely seen and not dangerous). Our Woman says your Mom is very brave! She's terrified of spiders and says if a spider that big came near her she'd scream!

Princess said...

I hate spiders. My furrrs are standing on end and I have major goose bumps.

I think you should pick up the phone and call the exterminator aaakkkkk
That thing is ginormous!

purrrs to all of you and stay safe!

Daisy said...

I cannot even look!

The Island Cats said...

We're with Daisy! We can't even look at that spider! We like to play with bugs...but that thing is huge!! And it's creeping our mom out big-time!

The Devil Dog said...

Okay, wow, that's really cool, nice. yup, uh huh.
gotta go, mom's trying very hard not to look at the screen.

(and she calls herself a black belt!)

catsynth said...

That is a big spider!
But we kinda think spiders are fascinating, we much prefer them to swarming insects.

Our mom would be so scared! But maybe we'd would just try to eat it... (O_O)
