I went into the kitchen to check on the kitty bowls, their water is low but there is a huge, hairy trantula size (ok, maybe not that big but...) spider sitting in the little bit of water that's there!!! :

I ain't touching that bowl! no way! nope! ...can you spell freak out?!

I covered the bowl so it can't get out and the kitties can't get bit. Luckily I have an extra bowl I can put water in for the kits! I'll get my brother to deal with it when he wakes up.

Our house spiders are bad enough, I just can't imagine anything bigger - and poisonous!

What a nasty surprise for you?!

Yuck! Poor you!! I'm fine with little spiders, but I can't be doing with those big ones with hairy fat legs and scarey eyes

See, in the UK we may have a lot of rain, and have to deal with the fact that David and Victoria Beckham are part of our country, but we don't have many poisonous wildlife!

You don't have tornadoes or hurricanes either. I think I'll emigrate ...

It is at that point that I would decide that the kitchen belongs to the spider...

Ahhh that would have made me jump too seeing a spider that size!

But I am not really that scared of them... The other month though, there were about 30 tiny money spiders in my bathroom. Now I don't know how they all got there and I am a very good with my dusting and stuff so I guess they invaded overnight. I got rid of them though..... that long hose on the Dyson comes in handy and has great spider suction!

Tarantulas aren't all that poisonous - their bite is comparable to a bee sting.

Put a plate on top of the bowl, take it outside and dump the spider well away from the house.

I think that's the funniest thing I've read today!

Just to re-state, it was a trantula- size spider, not an actual trantula!
My brother got it out of the bowl and disposed of, got a pic of it first, but have to wait until it's downloaded on the computer, then I'll post the pic of it!

If you're not complete spider squeamish, just google Clock Spider

I initially wrote wolf spider for some reason (it's definitely not one), but I'm guessing it's a fishing/dock spider. Yours looks like a *little* one (I know that doesn't make you feel any better! ). I've been stuck on canoes with those puppies. They live near water and sometimes enter homes. We get them here in Canada too. A lot more up north or in wooded areas than in the city though.

I'm no expert, but I have this odd curiousity about spiders, so I like to identify different types I've found. The last basement apartment I lived in had wolf spiders, but they were small ones, thank heavens! I'll never live in a basement apt. again though!

Holy moley what a horrible looking thing, the kitchen would definitely belong to it.
