About a month ago I got bit on the shoulder by a spider. For a couple of weeks after the area around the bite was itchy.
I only mention this because early yesterday morning I again was woken up by the sound of one of the boyz hacking up a hair ball. (I think the warm weather is causing them to clean themselves more and thus ingest more hair...) I was much too tired to get up and deal with it.
When I finally did get out of bed I searched everywhere to find the mess. I couldn't find anything out of the ordinary in the plush carpeted area of the isolated upper wing of the house. I began to wonder if I had just dreamed all this.
Later in the day I was going down the basement steps to do laundry, and sure enough I found a fairly fresh hairball. The first thing I could think of is the spider bite has given me super powers- extraordinary hearing. I'll let you know if I find I have the ability to climb the walls.
