My New Flatmates
Posted by Supertradmum
Two of these little creatures joined me in my flat. I stepped on one in the middle of the night. Eieieieuuu. One was crawling up the wall between the bathroom and the kitchen. These are the slugs of Malta, a special kind not found outside the countries around the Mediterranean.
Now, stepping on a mollusk in the middle of the night is not something I would wish on anyone. I put salt down by the two doors and a window. Of course, I keep the windows closed at night, but there are cracks underneath both doors.
I guess I should be glad these fellows are not brown recluse spiders or the HUGE cockroaches of Malta.
They must be cold, but if they understood English, I would tell them it is actually colder inside the flat than outside.
