I've learned to watch where I step as more than once I've done the foot jerk as I realize there is a dead bird/mouse/creature on the sidewalk. Last night I went to put Bella to bed. Bella decided she wanted to sleep in the shed in her straw nest, as I went to shut the gate I discovered another of Moxie's treasures. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what it is. It's big, kinda looks like a mouse but isn't. Perhaps it's a mole or muskrat. (Alberta is supposedly rat free.) Whatever it was it gave me the heebie jeebies! *shudder* As I was looking for and adding the links to pictures I realized the thing was clearly not a mole but could be a gopher, only the tail seemed, well, rat like. If I was a gruesome person I would post a picture of the dead thing and ask for suggestions. *Heh*
Each day I stumble across some new, dead creature. I must admit I appreciate Moxie's diligence in keeping the place vermin free, I just wish she'd cease and desist in bringing her prizes to the high traffic areas.
