Where scratches in a non-tank room have you putting your face in dark places not concerned that it might NOT be a crab

Wow. When did we become fearless? I had a mouse once in my bedroom growing up. I freaked out every time I heard it. I lured it into a bag of tortilla chips, snatched him up and tossed him outside bag and all. Terrified. Never thought things would change so much.

Kelly I had a mouse get into the house when I was a kid. It took up residence in my doll house. (Did he think he was the new Stuart Little?) I wasn't really freaked but didn't appreciate him moving in rent free.

....to happily set your alarm for 4 am so you can hand feed your injured crab before you leave for work.
