I'm warnin' you now that the photos are enough to put you off your Fancy Feast ... Thoughts of spiders alone make me itchy, but the bite looks really awful and horribly painful.
It's summertime ... Be careful where you put your hands. Spiders like the Brown Recluse like dark spaces, woodpiles, and cool areas in the attic. People digging, doing yard work, cleaning, or working in attics/basements should be aware of the dangers.
The following illustrates the progression of a Brown Recluse spider bite. The affected skin actually dies on his body. The Brown Recluse spider is the most dangerous spider that we have living in the United States. A person can die from its bite, so think what pain a kitty or woofie would go through after tangling with this spider! Please be careful. Spider bites are dangerous and can have permanent and highly negative consequences. They like the darkness and tend to live in storage sheds or attics or other areas that might not be frequented by people or light. If you have a need to be in your attic, go up there and turn on a light and leave it on for about 30 minutes before you go in to do your work.
This unfortunate man was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider and didn't visit his doctor until the bite became devastating!
