Critters in My House

Everywhere. Always in the kitchen. It doesn't matter if you keep the food off the counters or not. Upsetting at first, but now I'm zen.
2) Geckos
Friends! They eat bugs.
3) Cockroaches. They cause abjection, but mostly harmless as far as I know.
4) Mice
In the kitchen and in my bedroom. Quite elusive. They eat clothing and bite, but I don't know if I would be able to kill one even if I wanted to. They're fast.
5) Tarantulas.
Uncommon, but poisonous. Better off killed.
6) Mosquitos (called zancudos)
Of course.
7) Blanquita
The puppy. I'm okay with her in the house, but Eric is firmly against it, so we try to discourage her presence. She is very determined to be in the house, and gallingly audacious about it at times.
8) Beetles, flying insects, other unidentified bugs.


  1. Mice that bite! Aack! If you get bitten, see a doctor! Are the geckos as cute as the one in the commercial here?

  2. Well, Miguel claims they bite. My guess is they don't bite any more than American mice. But of course I would see a doctor if I got bitten.

  3. OK--it's NORMAL mice. They still would keep me awake!
