This is a Cat Face Spider. When we first moved to Idaho, I found one in the yard and captured it. I didn’t think anything so ugly needed to live.

Don’t get mad, it was right after we were tormented with tales of Hobo Spiders. An aggressive, poisonous spider that lives here. I wondered why God had brought me to such a place.

Big wimp, I know.

But I came from Lake Tahoe, where we don’t have to worry about poisonous spiders or snakes.

Now that I know Cat Face Spiders kill Hobos, they have become my favorite garden pet. All you need is a little perspective.

I am not a photographer, I can hardly take a picture in focus, but I love this one:

Isn’t it cool?
