The whole thing!

post #1 of 15

I woke up to a deep growling. There was Tripod crouched next to the bed. Again, I heard the growling and realized it was coming from him. Oliver was nearby watching his every move.

I jumped out of bed and grabbed Tripod. I knew he had something in his mouth and figured it was a lizard. We try to keep them out, but every once in awhile, they get in the house. I stuck my finger into the corner of Tri's mouth causing him to open it. He spit out a tree frog!

I couldn't believe he had the whole thing in his mouth! I don't know how he got in unless he was clinging to the door when one of us opened it. My BF took the frog outside and he hopped away. When he was a few feet away, the frog chirped, as if to say thank you.

That's funny, Renee. I wonder if he would've eaten it? Poor frog. Jamie was torturing a grasshopper in the upstairs hallway last night. He kept picking it up in his mouth, and spitting it out, then catching it again. He usually just eats them right away.

Tree frogs look kind of smooth and they can stick to a window very easily. We live on the 2nd floor and see them quite often on the outside of the windows.

A friend had one jump out of his mailbox and onto his face once.

Tripod had an entire treefrog in his mouth!You must be that frog's hero today, Renee!

Serenity is my little mighty huntress! Last year, the crickets drove me nuts! I have no idea how they get in, but they would keep me awake all night long with their endless chirping! Not this year! Not if Serenity has anything to say about it, anyway! When she catches her prize, she makes the most bizarre sounds. I always get it away from her, tell her how wonderfully she's done, then give her a treat. If she doesn't get her treat to eat, she wanders around calling frantically to find her cricket!

Tricia, I wonder, too if he would have eaten the frog. Tri was a found kitten and I assume he had to be a hunter before I knew him. His lack of a front leg didn't slow him down at all.

I was suprised because I thought that frogs emit a bad taste that would have caused him to drop it. Maybe thats why he was growling so loud.

Cody, my youngest dog brought a tree frog into the house and took it up stairs to deposit it onto my bed. It was still alive so I caught it and took it back outside. Animals are so funny sometimes.

Toads do. Frogs don't to the best of my knowledge, or at least not on this continent (I assume poison arrow frogs found in South America may be an exception .)

RoseHawke, that makes sense. I always get them confused.

Amy, I thought they were going to send someone into spray!

I bet that was a funny sight!
I was vacuming tonight and right as I turned on the vacum I saw Isis drop something in front of it and run away, then I see a snake slithering to get away from the terrible vacum and the horrible cat! so I grabbed it and the poor thing was just about to shed it's skin as it's eyes were all blue, (but that's another story) and it was a baby still. It was so frightened it peed all over my hand in it's defensive mode while I was taking it outside. Oh well, at least it's free a little tramatized but no punctures or wounds like that and I could wash my hand when I came inside! I bet it'll think twice before coming inside again!

A snake!!!!!!!! Weren't you scared?
Snakes (even the non-posionous kind) can cause a great deal of damage. Years ago, Oliver had a black snake cornered in the dining room. His face was 4 inches from the snake's face. The snake was curled up looking like he was about to strike. His tounge was sticking out. I figured I had to get Oliver away without causing the snake to strike. I hate to say it, but I pulled Oliver back by his tail and scooped him up. I then ran down the hall and tossed him on the bed, backing up quickly so I could shut the door before Oliver could get to it.
My tee-shirt was ripped to shreds.
Both of my arms were scratched.
I got a big bruise on my butt from backing into the door handle.
