Critters......Critters......and More Critters
What is it with me and critters….outdoor critters?
Do I have a sign on my back that says come on over and live with me?
After a trip to the bathroom and back to the living room my visitor decided to fly right out the front door that he entered in. I had propped it open in hopes he would.
That same winter, a year after the squirrels, I had my first mouse. I found this out when I went to grab a breakfast bar and it had been eaten into. I closed the pantry door, looked at the KING and asked, "what good are you, this is what your breed of dog is for"???? Of course I got a blank stare. Another thing I had to take care of. Thanks Dakota, wonder when you will earn your keep.
I had major surgery on my shoulder this past summer and by fall I was still not lifting heavy items. I had a Peace Lily in a big pot out front. I called my friend Brian and he came and took it in the house for me. I had him sat it in the living room. A few days later I decided that all my plants were going to the kitchen for the winter. So with that I slid that big pot through the living room to the kitchen. Only later to be sitting in my chair to see a green frog hopping across the living room. Okay, what's up with that. I guess he had been living in the plant and when I moved it, he jumped out. The KING never paid attention or seemed to notice. I caught the critter in a cup and let him outside.
After taking a pic, I always have a camera, I called my mom, we tried calling my brother who lives about 5 minutes away to come get it but I could not find anyone! After throwing rocks at it, thinking of poking with a stick and finally deciding to go to the back door I looked and he had gone back in. The KING and I ran up the stairs.
So what does this leave…..bats in my belfry now! I don't even want to think about it. But I am thinking that it is time for the KING to start earning his keep, or he will be dethroned.
