There's too much cleaning, scrubbing, packing, tossing (fortunately not any of us, hehe) as we started preparing the house for sale this week. In the middle of all that, we had a shock!
It was a few days ago.
Tinker had posted himself in front of the blue cube in the computer room. It sat empty, but he wouldn't move..
Mom Julie thought nothing of it. He always sets himself somewhere, pretends to watch something and then goes off to Dreamland.
Not this time.
Eyes big as saucers, he was frozen in place.
Then, Mom Julie decided to move the cube.
It was a SNAKE!!
IN THE HOUSE!!
|"Pardon me, boys, is that the cat that took the choo-choo?"|
OMC--how did he get in??
He was just a little guy, but he was long, and squiggly and SCARY!!
What to do??
Mom Julie took off the screen to the window, opened it, put a sock over her hand (you can't make this stuff up), and picked him up and flung him outside.
Just a garter snake, but still a shock to see him in the house. Fortunately, there are no poisonous snakes in Maine, but the ones that are around, you don't want to get on their bad side..:)
Now she's worried about him. She hopes he's going to be okay. Sheesh.
The Big Puss made up a story that he chased the snake away, but I know the truth!
All for this week, my furriends,
