Did ya hear my horror story of the big roach? It's on the answer the last question, ask the first, thread. Anyway...my hubby is of no use when it comes to picking up critters like that.
However, my JB does not have the skills, I have been working on them to teach him but that's like dragging a horse to water. He has gotten better at bringing in lizards which I always save and grasshoppers which is a hoot to watch him hop after them in the grass. He loves playing with roaches though, he doesn't know what to do with them and I figure their spiny legs aren't the best on his tongue, so he just bats them across the floor into the hallway underneath the doors and cracks and they always manage to survive the ordeal and pretend to be dead when they really aren't. Sneaky creatures!! Yeck! His new thing is bringing in the snakes, we have blind snakes, harmless, they look like extra long earthworms but move very very quickly when they sense you coming. Anyway, he brought one inside and was playing with it, it's tail was half bitten off, but he was just playing with it. I felt bad for the snake so I took it outside after trying to see if my hubby would do it, but in my household, I'm stuck with taking care of those things.
Still fun for me though to pick on him about it. This is a big guy and you would think he could handle something like that and he looks mean but he is big softy and gets squimish when it comes to lizards, snakes, roaches, etc.
My bestfriend had adopted this cat, which ran off, I think in search of some females, anyway, she never had a cat. So she calls me and says that she found the grossiest thing on her porch, a dead bird that was half recognizable and a lizard with it's legs stuck up in the air. She was freaking out
and I told her 'awww that is so cute!!! he's bringing you food and showing you that he knows you're the master and it's in appreciation of you taking care of him!' so then she says 'well why can't he show his appreciation in other ways instead of dead animals!' LOL!!! I told her I was jealous of her since mine doesn't know how to kill things like that
