    Yes. If the vacuum cleaner is in my room, and I can be bothered to unwind it, I'll suck the moths up. If not, I'll just get a can of cheap deodorant and just spray it constantly at the moth until it is debilitated, and then dead - it usually takes about 15 seconds of constant spraying.

    This happens to me a lot. Even when i have my blind down they somehow manage to get in. At night i sit in bed with my laptop on and the light off, so often one flies into or over the screen whilst Im typing. The other day a huge one missed the screen and flew straight into my face. Fortunately I got it out, but I often wake up to find dead ones on the floor or my desk or the windowsill. Moths are like vampires when it comes to morning!

    We always get massive moths in the house, not because we leave windows open but because our cat likes to catch them in her mouth then bring them in through the cat flap to play with in the hallway. -_-

    Not usually, she'll only paw them if they're within her reach and are moving, which tends to be when they've got a broken wing and are trying to fly away or something like that. If they fly too high or stay still then she gets bored and leaves them.
