Wed Woos: A Spidey Story

An itsy bitsy spider lives in the cellar. We'd never seen her, but we call her "Henrietta" and she's very good at catching bugs. But mom got quite a shock yesterday - she went down to do laundry & noticed a very BIG spider hanging there! She thought - wow, so that's what she looks like!
Then she noticed a much smaller spider approaching .....
And a closer look revealed that the very BIG spider was in fact, Henrietta's dinner! Woozers!
Mom checked in on her a couple hours later & Henrietta had pulled that big ole' spider up to the top of the storage bin - a good 15" straight up! That thing was 4x her size! I wonder if she's a "Working Class" spider? Go, Henrietta!

Mom says she can stay in the basement & catch bugs as long as she stays right there on the storage bin. Where we can see her. Don't want no spidey-surprises!

a-roos to yous,
Jack a-roo reporting

PS - I did poke my nose into her web once, it was like having cotton-candy on my snooter! Fortunately, I really am too big for her to snack on! woo!

Henrietta sounds like a great guard spider. Hope she sticks around.

Just goes to show you that size really doesn't matter:) Henrietta must be very brave and very hard-working - she must have some sibe genes in there somewhere.

But yes, she MUST remain in the basement.
