Mommy is pretty lenient with us and she doesn't ask a lot. In fact, she's really big on letting us 'do our thing' as she says. We have a lot of freedom and very few jobs in this house, but we still have certain things that we have to take care of. Besides loving her and keeping her warm at night, our next priority is getting rid of any bugs that dare to set eight feet in our lair. She HATES spiders and bugs! She always lets out a God-awful scream and we know we have a job to do. Samson and I know what that scream means and we always respond with enthusiasm. One time I heard Mommy cry out in the bathroom and I ran to her side to find her pointing at the ground, shaking with fear. Usually I like to torture the little critters and then dispose of them but this one had apparently had the nerve to jump on her head, then her shoulder before she brushed it off onto the ground! I had to munch that one up really quickly to show Mommy that I was capable of efficiently removing the threat. Spiders taste yucky but we always get yummy treats after we take care of them.
Winter time means less spiders but last night there was one on the wall! This one was a little tricky because I have not yet developed my ability to climb the walls (I am working on it, though). Sammy and I waited patiently (it seemed like hours!) but finally it climbed down enough for Samson to grab it. We are spider killers extraordinaire! Check out the concentration we have in this photo! Samson is usually a cam hog and poses whenever the humans have a camera but you can see he is focused on the task at hand.
It's finally Friday and we have had a hard week chewing bugs so we're going to relax all weekend! Have a great weekend everyone!
