First LIVE animal sighting
Alright, so it is official…write it down in the books – January 28th was the first day I saw a LIVE animal while checking out a crawl space or an attic. Fortunately it was not as exciting as running into an otter would have been, but I was invading the space of several feral cats. Now some of you might be thinking, a little kitty cat, that is nothing to be worried about, but this little kitty cat did not look like this:
In fact, it was a quite a bit more like this one: I kept on thinking that if I turned my back on this guy, I might just get a set of teeth in my leg while I wasn’t watching. As it turned out, we just stared at each other. I quickly got my measurements and was on my way before things escalated too far.
One live animal per month? That is not too bad. I have heard plenty of man vs. wild stories involving raccoons, squirrels, rats, mice, etc. Fortunately, this cat, although he was not too happy I was crawling around in his territory, decided it was best just to watch me.
