SPIDER !!!!!

Well, Spring is definitely here because the
BIG spiders are back!!!!!
Mom is not too happy about that because
they scare her ,as they move so fast!!
I think they might be fun to play with,but Mom 
does NOT want them in the house!

Mom was on the deck and saw this fellow on the screen.
She came indoors and tried to get it off the screen.
All it did was jump onto the window casing.
Since it would not go away,Mom decided to take pictures of it.
She was thankful for having a telephoto lens on her camera.

Did I mention Mom is scared of spiders??
 She had her finger next to it but she would have
 run from the room if it moved, hahaha
There is actually space between the screen and the spider.

This spider is known as a Fishing or Wharf spider.
The females can get quite large,about 3 inches.
Mom hopes it will go away soon, but it has been rainy
and the spider is content to stay dry.
Mom just hopes it is content to stay outside!!!!!

Mom is going to see her Mom this weekend, so we may 
not get to visit much, but we will try.
Happy Mother's Day to all moms this Sunday!!!!!

That is a biggie and I don't think it would taste very good!

William said...

Yep, I think the legs would get stuck in your teeth! (Even my mom kinda shuddered at that!) We all hope it stays outside!

Happy Mother's day to your mom!

Sparkle said...

Wow, what a cool toy! And your human won't let it in the house? Bummer!

Oh no, why did we have to read this before bed? Now us cats will be up all excited but mom will be up all scared!!

Sorry about not visiting. Its all we can do to get mom to post on the blog, but visiting has been impossible with mom's schedule. Hope you are all doing great and your mom too!

Holy cow that is one big spider, I would have truly freaked if that were in my house!!! The biggest spider I ever saw was on Maui, called a Cane spider it was like a mouse with legs...gah!!!

Meg said...

Thank you so much for your kind words on Fin's passing. :-)

Looks like fun! We would get rid of it for you! HaHaMeow!

Laura and Taffeta Rose said...

Big spider, please stay outside. Out there you are interesting; inside you are a terror on 8 legs (except for certain excited kitties, that is).

Laura and Taffeta Rose said...

Oh, we forgot. Happy Mother's Day!

Wow, that spider is actually quite impressive! We think they're kinda cool, and I'm sure they are fun for cats to play with :)

Dang, that is a big spider! Moosey would probably try to eat it. NOM!

Cory said...

That's an amazing spider, I bet it tastes fantastic! My mom is a spoil sport and she picks up the spiders with a glass and a piece of paper and she carries them outside. Out of my reach. Sigh.
