I feel like our home is a beacon for virtually every variety and species of living creature … we’ve had field mice, birds, bees, ants, fruit flies, moles, voles, squirrels, bunnies, fox, coyote, raccoons, and deer visited upon us over the years. All that’s missing are the frogs and locusts.
One morning this past September, I came downstairs to our kitchen, looking for some lunch while talking on the phone to a friend. I turned around in the doorway to the living room, and saw a brown blob sitting on the back of the couch. It was a little too far away to determine exactly what it was; initially, I thought, “Did the dog have an accident in a really weird spot?”
