Last week, I introduced you to 8-year-old Shelby Counterman of Tulsa and her obsession with bugs, hissing cockroaches to be precise. 

Since then, Shelby's video from last week's story on NewsOn6.com has gone viral.

So, Friday morning, I asked Shelby Counterman and her mom Meg to join me on 6 In The Morning along with a few of her closest pets.

Shelby is a 2nd grader who is obsessed with cockroaches and she was very upset when she recently heard how much I dislike the hissing cockroach.

The story about the hissing cockroaches has appeared on Huffington Post, Daily Mail, radio station blogs and websites around the world including one in Slovakia.
