They probably should be, but all three of mine are totally useless. All they catch are voles and birds (which they usually release in my kitchen). I'm hoping none of them come back with the snake now though - we still have no idea if it is still in the car!

I've just been left fostering 2 cornsnakes for a friend whos gone on exercise for 3 months to Canada, when i say left he literally left them on my doorstep with a postit note saying he'll pay me back when he comes home. Poor things were freezing and terrified, not as terrified as hes going to be when he gets back i assure you.

I love bugs and spiders and snakes etc used to have three lovelly tarantulas that i got when Windsor Safari Park closed years ago but strangely i can't bare crane flies or may bugs, even the thought of them makes me shiver.

Edited for God awful spelling.

A friend of mine at work was bundling her kids off to school when her little lad said his shoe felt funny.
She took no notice.
Later, in school, he removed it to find a (now dead) mouse.

This one's not scary but a coincidence.
Last year a blue tit flew in through our bedroom window, hit the sliding mirrors and lay concussed on the floor.
I scooped it up and took it outside (it was so tiny)
As I got to the back door with it in my palms a second bluetit flew in through the window and hit the wall.
The first one had recovered and was off.
The second had to be put in an open box and he was stunned.
It flew off a minute later.

I've had the perfect outline of a sparrowhawk and of a pigeon on our kitchen window.

I once washed my face in the bathroom washbasin and with my eyes still screwed up I grabbed for the towel, and as I was bringing it to my face I opened my eyes. Good job I did as there was one of the giant economy size spiders spread out in the folds of the towel, rapidly coming nearer to my face. It's the only time I've ever screamed with spiders or anything similar. OH came and grabbed the towel and run through the house with it to the back door as neither of us thought to open the bathroom or landing window and just chuck the towel through. Just the thought of that spider spread across my face still makes me shudder.

oooo, spiders are far worse than rats. a few stories:

1. Reading in bed, laid book down still open couldn't sleep, flipped book back over, black widow spider (very poisonous) underneath. I was across the room and in the corner screaming in less than a second (I swear the rat episode and the spider episode are the only two times in my life I've screamed) - fortunately the future Mr CBR and our roomate were home at the time.

2. Mr CBR is a geologist and loves to explore old mine looking for minerals. We went in one once and I wondered why the walls were shimmering, then I looked closer and realised it was thousands of daddy long legs crawling on it. Needless to say, I left quickly.

3. About a month ago, I was sitting peacefully reading my kindle when I felt something kinda rough in my jeans leg, so I went to move the offending bit and it moved. I quickly depants myself and saw a huge spider go scurrying away. it was its legs scrabbling on my bare leg that I'd felt. I'm panicking (sp?) by now as I have no idea if I was bitten or if France has poisonous spiders, so I'm furiously scrubbing my legg and Mr CBR is looking on the internet to find the answer to the poisonous bit (seems like there aren't any).

Spiders especially panic me as a guy who usedto attend record conventions that we knew fairly well wes bitten several years ago by a brown recluse spider, and just last year, in spite of everything the doctors could do is now in a coma and not likely to come out. BTW, don't image google brown recluse spider bites - it's not for the faint of heart.

While staying on the Isle of Mull, some years ago, we were woken by a rustling from the fireplace. There was a bat caught in the paper kindling (on topic ;)!) after falling down the chimney. I picked it up to put it out of the window (not necessarily wise, I know now). I was amazed by how warm it was and light and delicate.

few words says:
Sortly after we moved into our new house, we had friends round and as I went to go out the back door to put some rubbish in the bin a frog was sat on the doorstep. I screamed jumped out the door as the frog (obviously frightened) jumped in.
I had to go round to the front of the house to be let in as I dident want the frog to go under the washing machine. My hubby slowly opened the utility door and caught the frog and put it back in the garden.

We have quite a few frogs in the pond and in the long grass at the back of the house and they dont frighten me now but this was the first I had seen up close.

My baby is 36 now but one summer I had hung several babygrows on my washing line to dry, they had previously been soaked in floral fabric softener.

It started the rain so I dashed out and collected them all. As a few were just a bit damp I hung those on cup hooks screwed into my linen cupboard (hot water tank below).

Next day I needed a clean baby gro and was carrying one down the stairs when it started humming. The foot of the baby gro was moving by itself.

I dunked the foot of the baby gro into the sink of washing up water till it stopped moving then took the baby gro outside. The humming was a huge bumble bee which flew off none the worse for its ducking.

But if it hadn't moved in the babygro foot I might have put my daughter in the baby gro and her foot could have got badly stung.

K. A. Newton says:
I had my ginger tabby (striped tail) doctored and was travelling home on the bus with the cat in an old zip up bag. An old lady was sitting next to me on the bus when the bag started moving on my knee. I told her not to worry as it was just my cat coming round from anaesthetic at the vets.

I opened the zip a little to show her and the cat's thin striped tail came out of the bag waving about. The old lady must have been deaf as she screamed and shouted I had a snake in my bag and it was loose.

The whole bus (double decker) evacuated. The driver did not know what was going on and drove along to the next stop and then got a message on his radio someone had called the bus company.

He came and asked me about the snake. I told him it was a cat and he stood 6 feet away till I lifted the cat out. He said the depot had told him to drive to my destination and drop me off. So he did and I had the whole bus to myself all the way home.

This is true.
I found a spider floating in my fish tank today.
I removed it, put it to one side then noticed it was alive and trying to move.
I carefully placed it on to a sheet of kitchen paper and put it in a little spot outside in the sunshine to help him dry out.
I'll tell St Peter to check out my story when he asks why I think I should be allowed in.

honeybunny says:
Yes, I couldn't sleep in a room with one because of the noise they make, and the potential to dive bomb you in your sleep! some big fat moths can be just as bad and really quite fearless. One went straight in my face and bumped quite hard against my eyelid, (which I had closed in horrified anticipation) Oh well, the beasties are a small price to pay for our 'summers'. And the beasties from abroad are even worse. I'll never forget a humming insect, about the size of a small bird, bouncing off my OH neck in Turkey. I could never go for a hike in a jungle because of strange beasts.. my heart wouldn't survive the strain.

I hate daddy long legs too they are like flying spiders! You're right some of those September spiders are well 'ard! I get the feeling they are giving you the v sign when the wave those front legs at you! Ooooh I've scared myself!

Suze says:
I don't mind spiders and could do with a couple of big ones right now, as I have a fly driving me round the bend. I think it's a superfly or something, 'cos it just won't die. We have spells with large spiders and some of them are so big you could put a saddle on them and ride them. I had one for so long I adopted it as a pet.

honeybunny says:
Strangely I'm OK with them, just... as least you can see them to catch them and they don't spot you from afar with their ten beady eyes and run towards you faster than the speed of light! Well faster than I can get out of the room anyhow!

honeybunny says:
I'm the same, absolutely loath spiders with a fear bordering on phobia. I'm OK with smallish ones but anything bigger than a 5p piece leaves me screaming for my life. Those September spiders are the worse, big, fast and mean. I spend the entire month in a constant state of dread, as soon as I see one haring purposefully across the rug towards me, I'm over the back of the couch and won't come back in the room until OH has convinced me he's caught it. When I see another one scuttling about an hour later he convinces me its his 'mate'..hmm

Shudder! I love animals but struggle with anything with more than four or less than 1 leg(s) with the exception of our three legged cat! I grew up in the far north of Scotland for a bit and we had all sorts of garden visitors but the biggest pain were the Roe deer who insisted on destroying the garden!

Angel, I always assumed cats were ace at getting rid of rats and mice? I say this as a cat owner who lives near fields and farms and have never seen a mouse or rat nearby, I always thought it was my cat presence keeping them away. Are cats not a deterrent then?
