Pet hates

Officially we don't have any pets. I wanted a fish tank, but my partner wanted a dog, so we got neither. That is untill the Daddy Longlegs moved in this summer. They buzz in the lampshades and land on your face.

One or two I wouldn't mind. I could just send them back out into nature, but we seem to have been infested by the buggers. That is until the spiders started taking over.

We get the occasional spider inside, but most of them live in our garden, and they weave the webs from flower to tree, from post to post, across our path.

But as long as they catch the Daddy Longlegs, I don't mind.

Ohh I don't like Daddy Longlegs. They tend to take over the place. First there's one, then the Mrs moves in and the kids in tow.. get a cat! you'll be Daddy Longlegless (is that a word) and mosquitoless, and spiderless....

What is a Daddy Longlegs? Over here we have a spider called that ... and there is no buzzing with them at all .. nor do they land on faces! LOL

They eat mosquitoes and other small insects. If I had a spider like you have pictured I'd run and hide far, FAR away!

Cute pets you have :-)

We have some strange ones too, but they are more easy going:

1. The giant panda Orvar
2. The sharks one
3. The sharks two
4. The zebra Roger Pontare (named after a swedish singer)
5. Jack Russel (brother to Kurt Russel)
6. Cat Stevens (after the singer)
7. Napoleon
8. The dust rats

Pet # 1-6 is as you prob guessed already, toy animals. Mr Lifecruiser have won them at tivolis.

Pet # 7 is made of porcelain.

Pet # 8 do we have because we want some animals that actually is moving. Hard to pet them though ;-)

We have a perfect food chain at our house. Spiders are eating flies and daddy longlegs, cat eats spiders.

No! Of course we donĀ“t eat the cat!!

We seem to have had more than our fair share of daddy longlegs and spiders in our place this summer - I guess it is the weather. Either they are co-habiting nicely or the death toll isn't keeping up with the birthrate.

This morning my son wakes up and starts shouting mum please come to my room when i open the door he said mum look there is a flying spider i said no son its a daddy longlegs. I'm scared shitless of them but there was me being brave for my son and trying to kill them until i pulled the curtain and another ten flew out. In the end my husband had to sort them out. They are a right pain in the arse. Like you say its the bussing sound more than anything that gets to me.

One spider actually made a huge web across our backdoor, and cault Lasse.
That's ambition or just a huge appetite.

Daddy Longlegs are harmless. They don't even have a big enough mouth to bite!
