He killed a brown recluse!

I know they like to chase bug's and thing's that move.But I was surprised he killed the brown recluse before I could see what he had. I just hope he doesn't try to eat one!

Wow! That's crazy! Gracie likes to chase bugs too. I'm going to watch a little more closely at what she does chase!


Tigger is my- favorite!

When Tigger was a bit younger, he went after a moth, and this type of moth has a chemical that causes a reaction - needles to say, when he bit it, he started foaming at the mouth & I completely freaked out! It only makes a bad taste for them, but it does make you double think what bugs they are going after. Smithwick almost went after a HUGE wasp the other day...eeesh!!

I didn't what it was until I looked it up. We don't have them here. They do have poisonous fangs. Please check with your vet if you see anything with your kitten. Natasha used to eat insects. Alex just plays with any insects...

I would be very wary if we had recluse in UK. I have kept spiders for over 20 years and would not like my cats to get a bite from a tarantula tbh, some are toxic to humans. The worst things mine hunt is Ginge and bees on my lavender bush. But thats earmarked for moving soon, so he can't get them.


cause thats what- i am a princess

How is Shadow doing now? Since it happened a while ago, I would not worry to much. I like to hunt Black and Brown Widow spiders myself!
But that was when I was a lot younger. I am now 1 year old and have moved up to lizards. mol
Please keep us all posted as to how things go.
