This HUGE mantis was on the window of our local movie center!
Squint went for a 'sleepover' last night, to see how well he gets along in a new house. The momma dog who licked his ear lives there, along with a large pack of other indoor dogs. So far he has gotten along well with all of them - I'm more worried about his own 'defensive reactions' getting him into trouble.
Squint met Tessa Goat last night as well - and disapproved highly of her. Good for Tessa though, she got scratched on the nose by him and did nothing but draw back and look down at him like 'What's your problem?' Two minutes later she was investigating again, but from further away. Tessa likes kittens - and has helped watch over the last litter Newt had.
My girls are either chewing on each other because Squint isn't here to do it, or are fighting over 'who lost the kitten - he was here yesterday!'
Willow took time out to investigate the pocket of the suitcase.
Up until yesterday I had those nice jingley double pointed needles in that pocket. Now Willow keeps sticking her head and paws inside trying to figure out why the pocket doesn't jingle anymore!
Seen in the background is Obsidian Kitten's excellent jumping spider gift - which gets a lot of use around our house! Also, we have a filing box in front of the closet to keep Sallymander's paws from constantly opening it!
Linky: These Celtic Long Spiral Socks look great! Maybe my black and white Palette will come to good use this Winter ;o)
