What was that sound???
So I get up early this morning, leaving hb snoozing in bed. This is my favorite time of day. 6:15am, still dark, quiet, coffee in hand, Sunday paper in the other hand.
I hear something fall in the basement.
I ignore it.
Over the course of a half hour I hear many sounds from the basement. Scurrying noises. Things tipping over.
We have a critter. So hb finally wakes up and I say "good morning, we have a critter in the basement."
And down he goes, clad in his boxer briefs and nothing else.
At this point I'm just praying it's not a BIG critter.
I hear him call my name, asking for my help. Yeah right. Like I'm going down there. So I say "what kind of critter is it??"
A mumble in response.
"I'm not going down there until you tell me what you have."
OMG - how freaking cute are these things????? Little body, big head and big eyes. ADORABLE. FAST.
We finally trapped him in a fishing net and put him outside. Turns out he had nested in one of our birdhouses, the same birdhouse hb brought inside yesterday afternoon to repair.
Imagine that squirrel's surprise when he woke up inside his house, INSIDE MY HOUSE.
