Boris the Spider

When I went to the bathroom about an hour ago, there was a spider on the wall next to the toilet. I don't like spiders but I can tolerate them at a distance - like, preferably, not in the same house as me. In a triumph of rationality over screaming abdabs, I convinced myself that it wasn't about to leap off the wall and onto my bare bum, and so used the loo without disturbing the spider, just 12" away. I'm still hoping it will have moved when I go back again.

I had a cat called Vila who liked spiders. He thought they were tasty. 
Or maybe he liked the way they wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside him.

He was a smallish cat, but charming. When he was 7 months old we took him to the vet to be neutered. The nurse gave him a grope and said "There's not much here, but we'll have them off anyway."  Now that really is adding insult to injury !

Oh, poor Vila! Typecast again. But yes, smallish and of great charm describes him well.
