Eight legs? Pincers ... some weird kind of spider?
Certainly a new one on me.
Glad it wasn't in Henry's dish as going by his recent behaviour he would no doubt have eaten it.

As you know I love bugs but I have never seen one like that before, My first thought was scorpion (we do have small ones in this country as we do centipedes) but he doesn't really look like one of those either at the back, he has no sting.  I am truly intreagued.  Wouldn't like him near my babies though.

I'm wondering if it is something in an intermediate state .... not fully formed. A beetle of some kind or tick .... its body is similar to a ticks.

It's a pseudoscorpion (seriously that's what they're called).

It must have came out of the bag of hay because there's a mosquito net over their bedroom window!

Don't mentioned bites please.
I was looking after a patient two nights ago in her own home. two cats lovely. At about midnight it didnt feel lovely anymore. One of the cats and myself scratching. Came home in the morning covered in flee bites all over my body as the sods must be on the soft furniture as well.
So....
Into the shower long on. All cloth straight into the mashine on 60 degree long circle before I would say good morning to the folks.
