Opie got quite a workout, yesterday. With the nice weather, I leave the back door open and Opie likes to hang out and watch birds in the backyard. Yesterday afternoon, a lizard was skittering around on the screen door. Opie went ballistic! He was jumping and trying to climb the screen. He REALLY wanted that lizard! Fortunately, the door is wrought iron and security mesh or, he might have gone through it. The lizard, finally, got down, on the patio. With it being that close, Opie freaked, again. Bill and I were, prctically, rolling on the floor, watching him. Woe betide any small creature that, actually, gets into the house. Years ago, I had cats that caught the occasional lizard. They, never, ate them, though. I found dismembered lizard parts scattered around my kitchen - YUCK! Hope that Opie isn't going to do that. I don't mind lizards but, I prefer them intact and outside.
