One of the best qualities I got from my mom is that I'm a total animal lover. I love all animals, big and small. I grew up on a farm with a huge feed yard full of cattle. I had pet cows, horses, rabbits, cats, dogs, snakes, and turtles. I'm the type of person who will catch a mouse in a live trap, and take it out down the road (away from my house) and let it out. For almost three years of my life, I was a vegetarian. I probably would still be if I didn't get severe food poisoning while living in Mexico.
This whole attitude towards Earth's creatures totally changes when we start talking about bugs and spiders. About two weeks ago, we receive a lot of rain. Mix that with 98 degree weather, and you are just asking for bugs to take refuge in your house. That's exactly what we got. A compilation of spiders, cockroaches, and ants trying to stay dry and cool. I quickly called the exterminator and got him to come out right away. Yesterday and today I've finally noticed all the remains of his work. Dead bugs!! I LOVE IT!
I think this response might be a little insane, but having cockroaches in my house is just something I'm not prepared to live with!
