We have had a few unexpected visitors, or should I say, critters lately.
Yesterday, when we came home, we noticed Mika acting very strange because he didn't run out and greet us like he usually does. He kept staring at the floor and was acting very nervous. And that was when we saw this... on our doorstep
Both Rosie and I jumped out of our skins in the car. We are absolutely terrified of cold blooded slimy things and this was no different. If you don't already know, this is a monitor lizard. They are not actually poisonous and are not harmful creatures at all but this one was on our doorstep trying to get into our house!!! It kept facing the door but luckily, the gap between the door and floor was too small for it to squeeze through. Mika was next to the lizard, wagging his tail, coming back and forth to us. Luckily he didn't eat it up!!!!!
I reversed my car out and tried to get any of my neighbours' to help. But nobody knew how to tell the lizard to go back to its own home ...so we were stuck outside the house, watching this creature try to enter through the front door. Well, after a few minutes, it moved away and I panicked, thinking it woud crawl in through the window, so as I ran to shut them, I think I frightened it and it ran away... and since then, we have been very careful when opening our front door!!! :)
This all happened when Eva was stuck inside her little room, not knowing what was going on. She barked a couple of times because she could hear our voices but saw none of us. She usually gets rather angry when we come home and don't visit her!!
So here's a picture of Mika, the good brave boy that kept the lizard at bay and didn't eat it.
And Eva, who knew absolutely nothing about what had happened but just wanted to look pretty in this picture for you!
So who wins the bags of trips I brought back from the UK???
