It all started out as usual…slept in, got up when mom did but she tossed me back into the comfy cloud.
After Dad got up, and by then I would have stayed under the warm blankies for a while more, he made me come with him though.
So I found if I have Mom the appropriate look, I could join her on her chair! My chair is ok, but Mom’s has better surface area- more stretchy space! Even better when she leaves!
So a day of lounging, and then an attempt at a walk that was thwarted by a plethora of bitey bugs, and we relaxed back in the blue screen room for the evening.
I have by now lulled my two- leggers into a complacent, “she’s in her chair, she’s sleeping” attitude. BOL !
In a plot twist that took less than a second, I spotted my prey, and quietly slipped off my chair in a tangle of orange blankie and harness and leash!
I had waited until I was on Dad’s side of the blue screen room, as I believe Mom has a more natural affinity for sensing my next move, so when Dad was distracted, it was easier to make my move to chomp.
Magic toad !
I have been waiting all trip, sniffing out where I had tasted one last year, keeping my nose sharp, and it walked right past the blue screen room !
And I chomped it!
No, I didn’t get to eat it- Dad made me drop it after it spewed its gross tasting icky stuff, and I began frothy spewing myself.
Mom grabbed me and washed my mouth out- 4 times!!! The last one was full on water pressure at the water tap.
They did not understand how awesome I was. I caught it from 2 Sprocket-lengths away and through the gap in the blue screen- from my chair!
Instead, she put me in jail after I expunged my supper all over the ground in 5 places.
But it was magical!
I’m such a great hunter!!
