Poor Hootie

Yesterday, Hootie gained a fear of sticky bug traps. I was in the bathroom when I saw a streak of fur fly across the living room, when I came out I discovered that Hootie had gotten his tail stuck in a spider trap and was trying desperately to outrun it. I wish I had gotten it on video, but I was laughing too hard. He was running all over the place, jumping up on the table and running and finally diving into the closet to hide. Lucy just sat there under the table watching in amusement at his torment. I couldn’t find him in the closet, but I felt the trap. I started to pull on it, thinking it would just pop off and he could relax a bit, but it was so attached that he started to get dragged out of the closet. I got it off by peeling up one side at a time, but it still left a bald spot on his tail. Poor thing was traumatized for most of the day.
