I know we have had some good yuck stories but mine has got to be one of the worst . So I'm putting zoey to bed and giving her good night kisses and pats and notice something thick and squashy in her hair. I thought what in the heck is that. I couldn't see anything so I put her in the sink and ran water over the area. I washing trying to get what ever it is out when a slug rinses out of her hair and lands in the bottom of the sink . Before I could figure out what to do the slimy slug still alive went down the drain. I just visualized it going down the drain and out to the sewer and it would be gone. Well my co workers said it probably worked its way back up.
Karens Kodie gets first place with the Mouse but I think the slug is up in the top ten for a gross yuck story.

Oh Lord! That is gross.....I think I would run lots and lots of water and put bleach and anything else strong down the sink to kill it!

Yup! Slugs are definitely high on the grossness scale!

Suzi - at least Zoey didn't eat the thing. Last year, while taking Augie out to his potty area, we passed a slug and he tried to eat it. I got it out of his mouth and threw it aside. But he did not forget - on the way back in, he pulled over to where I had thrown it, got it in his mouth and swallowed before I could even react! I want to throw up just thinking about it now! Their texture is so icky and it takes forever to wash off that slime. They are nasty this year; I just noticed several stems of my barberries cleaned of leaves with the shiny residue of slug slime. I have NEVER had barberries bothered by slugs before.

Slugs are so disgusting!!! I heard that if you put little containers of beer down they will drown in it! Never tried it, though. We had them in our old yard but haven't seen any here. With all our woods I guess the wildlife here would wolf them down!
