I never got my dog "Ernie" neutered...couldn't bring myself do it...

He was a pain in arse (quite literally where female dogs were concerned no matter what size or shape) throughout his life! At least he never tried to shag the cat!

Today I relocated the biggest snapper I've ever seen in the wild from a very busy stretch of road down to a quiet bog. (S)he weighed at least 40 pounds, and had a head bigger than my fist. Photos in the next few days if I can find time to download them at work (this computer can't handle it).

As long as you didn't shag it, you're probably OK. The main symptom of Tarantula bites is death - if you get that, you did get bitten.

It was a very cute Mexican Tarantula but my feelings were purely platonic.

Wikipedia wrote:Most tarantulas are harmless to humans, and some species are popular in the exotic pet trade. All tarantulas are venomous, but only some species have venom that, while not known to have ever produced human fatalities, can produce extreme discomfort over a period of several days.

I hope you got a photo of you hi-fiving the tarantula, Bart, although I can't help but feel that Mr Spider was displeased that you couldn't give him a hi-eight. :haha:

There may be a photo...I can't remember if we took one or not it was so exciting. Then there was a scorpion and a stick insect as well!

I love stick insects and scorpions. Never held the latter, but I have the former. They're really weird.

The cats found another mouse in the kitchen this evening. I was able to rescue him before any significant mayhem was done, and release him out in the barn. Hopefully he's clever enough to stay out there.

I recommend using the cat as a pillow-enhancer. She'll move soon enough.
