Zoey does not need a clock, or a calendar to know that spring has sprung.
She only needs turn her attention to any window screen ...
And the rest of the story is ... one of these monsters, or a close family member
(and these are not the little kids on the block, these are 6-7-inches long)
got into the house and then into the master bathroom. 
The ZH said she'd rather use our litter box than go in that bathroom!  So ...
Step #1: get kitchen spaghetti tongs
Step #2: get paper bag
Step #3: enter bathroom, close door behind you
Step #4: make lots of noise
Step #5: when monster rushs out from behind the litter-loo,
grab tail with spaghetti tongs
Step #6: drop monster into paper bag, close bag quickly
Step #7: take paper bag into woods, open, monster escapes
Step #8: use bathroom
Step #9: sterilize spaghetti tongs
P.S. she does let me and Mag chase and play with the littler ones


  1. Ewwwwww! M just passed out cuz we don't have anything like that around here. Zoe - be careful it doesn't get you and eat you up!

  2. That sounds like a good list to me. We only get little ones on the third floor. Never the big ones.

    pawhugs, Max

  3. We get all sizes here. Sometimes the little ones are almost see-through!!

    The Florida Furkids

  4. That goodness we don't get those here - Mum would be stood on the table!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. Yikes that's a little big for my liking!!! Thank you for Kip's birthday wishes :-)

  6. Ooooooh....we have those here too but ours are smart and stay at the front of the house so me and the pack won't eat them. Think we just got a new litter of babies too.

  7. We volunteer for Monster Duty!


  8. Oh my goodness! Those were big!!!

  9. Oh my! I'll bet the big ones could take a bite out of Maggie or Zoey! They might be interesting to watch from a distance, but I wouldn't want to get as close as you did.

    You're so brave!

  10. we have a few kittehs at PAWS who will be happy to help catch those monsters! :)

    Squeee! Oh my, we'd luf to have one of those! Our human is kinda fearless-she'd just pick em up! Gotta be careful cuz they can snap!

  12. Ewwwwww - those are awful - Mom would die if one of those got in the house. Your ZH is very brave to do that. Those are almost as bad as the snake we found.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  13. We don't get anything like that here, but we wish we did.

  14. Mom has seen those but not aroung the house!

  15. We don't have those here...but when we were in Florida, Chloe became obsessed with the little teeny ones that were all over the deck!!! She was REALLY excited about them...not that she would hurt them...just wanted to chase them! Mama would be flippin' out!!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  16. *shudder* I wouldnt used that bathroom either....
