We have been plagued with a few big, black flies that have taken up buzzing around everywhere and making a nuissance of themselves. I have no idea where they came from. We've checked for rotting things to no avail. There's no obvious explanation as to why they appeared or why they're so damn annoying.

I feel bad chasing them around with the swatter because the swatter scares Sally. When anyone starts waving it around she runs away with her ears and tail down and hides until it's safe to come out.

When we first got her she had been badly abused and we barely saw her around anywhere. It took a lot of intensive snuggling to get her over her fear of brooms and newspapers, but she's still pretty skittish.
