As I do most days, I napped this afternoon. Nearly every day I do that, my cat hears the noises of my starting to wake up and comes in from wherever he is to jump up and get petted once he's actually awake. (I observed the process when Mom and Dad would be visiting and one or the other of them took a nap.) This afternoon, then, I was just starting to stir, and whump there he was, staring at the wall a few feet up. I turned my head and saw quite a large spider there. I'm not really arachnophobic but I sure do hate bugs and things where I am doing personal things like sleeping. Not to worry, however: in one swipe he had it down on the floor, and then it was crunch crunch crunch time. He got extra treats with supper.
