Enough already! My cat Scout is being a starved, craving attention, please play with me cat! My other cat is under the weather. Johnny, well he’s like Scout’s older brother.

My Big Boy Johnny






He was older when Scout was born. All the other older cats at the farmhouse, were mean to him. Not Johnny, he took baby Scout under his wing! Taught him everything to know about being a tougher cat. Johnny was tough, yet gentle, with Scout. He still is. Scout is his shadow.

Johnny, being not so playful lately, has left Scout with nothing to do, but get in trouble. Scout really has the cutest personality and loyalty.MY BABY BOY, SCOUT But lately with no one to play and sleep with, Scout has been being naughty. Its as if he has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. My nightstand is his very own personal space. He has a slim walkway. He makes his way past my belongings, and heads straight to my fan. This is where he sticks his head up to the blowing air for a few seconds, he then lies down. I’ve crowded his space. To make sure I know this, he’s knocking all my stuff to the floor, ON PURPOSE!

Enough Already……………..


Once Upon A time..Exotic Pets 5

Now, my husband had a couple more tarantulas, but this is the last one I had. I will show the full grown size, but mine was still a baby. I liked to get mine as babies, so that I could train them to be used to being handled. This was my most beautiful tarantula! Common name is green bottle blue. I have two photos of this one!

To continue on with our collection of tarantulas, this next one was mine. A Tiger Rump. Although mine was still only the size of a 1/2 dollar, the image I’m posting is a full grown Tiger Rump.

Since my spiders were still so small, I held them a lot, so that as they grew, they would be used to handling!

Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time, my husband and I were into collecting exotic animals. Tarantulas, snakes, lizards, salt water fish, fresh water fish, and a few things here and there. I once had a domestic white duck. That is a story I will save for later.

I am going to start with our Tarantula collection. First, the spiders we had, then some beautiful spiders I wanted. There is quite a bit, so I am going to post a Tarantula a day. The first picture is an Origidian ornamental tarantula. There is a species name, but that gets way to complicated. The spider I am going to post, is also the same spider my husband had tattooed on his back. A birthday present from me. This is the Tarantula!
