Bugs in the house!

I was sitting in the front room working on a project last night when all of a sudden I saw this scampering across the floor!


Needless to say I was not entirley amused. Not at all! I grabbed a shoe, chased it across the room and squished the daylights out of the critter.

Now I respect life and don’t normally go around attacking living creatures, well accept for the bat incident, but in my house there should be two kinds of beings, People and a cat. Anything else does not belong and I have rules.

If it is on the floor or on the wall within reach the critter is fair game. If I catch it, it goes outside unless it’s dangerous then it’s dead for sure. If it is above what I can reach, it needs to stay there or get his buddies and leave.

Do you save them or quish them?

Blessed Be

  1. I don’t even know what the heck that is. I hate to admit it but I would have killed it too.
    As for other bugs – spiders, scorpions, beetles – I try to scoot them outside. Florida is full of bugs.


  2. Hi ElementHealing,
    I met you on Danny Ray’s site.
    Thank you again for your kind words about my article, a giant list post.
    To answer your question, it depends who you are. Buddhists value all life. If I can, I get a broom and sweep it out even though I’m not a Buddhist. Nice to meet you.

  3. This was a really cute question. I enjoyed reading everyone’s responses. As for myself, anything that has a hard shell, or is crunchy tends to be squished. Other things will be transplanted outside or banished to the basement (where I never go) in the winter time.
