I saw this the other day. Did you see the part where she did a Vulcan mind meld with it to get it to leave?

That cat looks comfy. There's a certain Harry S. Miller folk song that comes to mind.

I think this cat was someone's pet they turned out in the wild. It saw the door open and went in like any house cat would. Being the cat didn't freak out upon seeing the human tells me it was probably rescued until it could be turned out.

OK. I fee dumb that I never realized this before, but when you are outside at night and are wearing a fairly strong headlamp, those glittering dew drops you see here and there in large numbers on the grass are actually spider's eyes looking back at you. You'll see, when you get closer. And they are everywhere.

If you change your headlamp to red, they glow red.

I have no experience with the phenomenon you're describing, but how do you know it's not actual moisture/dew drops?

Because when you walk up to one, it's a spider. I tried to say that in my post but wasn't terribly clear.

It is a ground spiders web which catches fleas or mosquitoes or whatever. Before morning they collect their web to recycle for the next night. That is dew shining back at you as the spider is so small its doubtful you could see the reflection of its eyes.

See, I thought it was dew, but upon closer examination it was the spiders' eyes. Dew hadn't formed yet, and the reflection was greenish when the headlamp was in white light mode, and red in red mode. These were the kind of spiders that just crawl around and don't have webs. I always called the bigger ones wolf spiders.

This page talks about it too, although they are in Belize and I was in Virginia.

I have never seen their eyes never paid attention to it. My night visitor built a web from the porch rail to the porch swing. It only took a couple nights for it to learn about the cats walking on the rail for it to adjust its web. Someone visiting at night dispatched him/her. I don't bother the wildlife if it doesn't bother me and I was upset that they killed my spider.

I can back Glatt up here. Seen it many times. What we call 'field spiders/wolf spiders' (brown, can get fairly big, black stripe down each leg) you can pick 'em out at night with a flashlight from a fair distance away by their reflecting eyes.

In the hottest part of summer we got little 'worms' (?) that come out and glow on their own. Well out in the country, away from light pollution, in short grass, ya can see whole fields of them sometimes.

We don't have any such worms over here, because of evolution. The Smokies divide KY and NC and the only worms that glow are down by the nuclear plant in Southport.

Then you got all those critters we don't have. Werewolves, we don't have any of them. Those vampires can stay on your side of the mountains too. No bears over here either. I never saw one so there must not be any.

Glowing worms?! Pics or it never happened.
