We are talking bout a Brown Recluse? Don't they have the "violin" on their back? I find them all the time will be much more careful from now on!

Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] Brown spider (loxosceles reclusa) bite leads to
        hemolytic anemia

I was bitten by one last November. My wound didn't become necrotic - but the swollen area was about 10" in diameter, it was tremendously painful and I have a discolored & noticeable concavity in my leg at the bite site which will probably be permanent. Since that time I have suffered from constant exhaustion along with muscle spasms in the affected leg that are sometimes non-stop. So, I am always on the lookout for them. Interesting - I would love to see the research if you would kindly email it to me.

I keep thinking of how fast I lost Beltza, and hence I keep researching. Just to find out that is very weird*, but that the bite of a *Loxosceles
reclusa* causes hemolytic anemia.

*weird in adults, not that weird in children -- I would say, not that weird
in our cats.

I don't know if these spiders are common where you live, but please google a
pic of them so you can recognize it --and kill it--- when you see one.
Please don't expose your kitties to this bug.


PS. If someone wants the original scientific papers I've read, let me know,
so I can email them
