    So, question of the day -- how long do crickets live? There is a cricket *somewhere* in the master bathroom - the best part, it is nowhere that is actually accessible. We have it narrowed down to being down in the vent or possibly somehow under the garden tub -- either way, he is in a location with some great acoustics because his little song is getting some great carriage [​IMG] Not only that, but of course it is attracting the attention of the house cat so we have the singing cricket *and* the cat trying to get to it. And DH wonders why I seem to prefer sleeping in the recliner in the living room [​IMG]

    I was here at the beginning! :weee :celebrate

    I have a question what is it called when your chicken has a nasty leaky butt with a sore looking vent. I know what it is but I can't think of it for the life of me right now.

    Not sure which is worse - losing an argument to yourself or to a cat (or chicken) [​IMG]

    Had to laugh tonight - I had posted a picture the other night to facebook of how "scared" the chickens are of the outdoor cats, tonight they really did it. About half the flock was up in the yard (begging DH to toss some scratch - he is trying to buy their love) and Jackie (cat) popped up with a freshly caught mouse in her mouth. She was so worried about making sure Mojo and Salem (her brothers) didn't steal her catch that she forgot about the chickens - next thing you know one of them walked right up to her and stole that mouse out from under her nose, ran off with it and a game of chicken keep-away ensued until she managed to get it in position to swallow whole (that blew DH's mind). Poor cat never knew what hit her.

    Best Answer: Me personally I would take a different approach to the cricket. I do consider them worthy of living in my home not in my bed or in my kitchen but I like the idea of saving the creature with a little folklore with it. With the economy as it is today, maybe you could use some luck like the rest of the country.
    GOOD LUCK!

    Crickets are said to foretell good luck. Their songs are said to bring blessings to all that are lucky enough to hear them. In many parts of the world, a cricket found in the house will be treated with respect. Often, they are placed in small cages made especially for them, given food and water, and hopefully able to live a long life, as the longer they live, the more good luck they bring. Others say to leave them as they are, and if they stay, it means large amounts of money will come to the owners of the dwelling.
