Critter sightings at our house...

We always have lots of critters hanging around our yard. We have an acre with the back part wooded. I think they know that they are safe here.

We call this girl, Sissy! She comes on the deck and looks in the sliding glass door when she wants peanuts! She will come right up to me, but want take the peanut out of my hand. Yet. I talk to her and feed her everyday. She's really small, much smaller than Rocky.

What kind of critters are these? LOL Oh, wait...that's our family, taken on the 4th of July!!

This little toad was in the kitchen last night! He was only about an inch long. I scooped him up and put him out, before the dogs or the cat found him.

This cute little critter was all curled up in a ball sleeping in our side yard, near the street. I had Richard put gloves on and move it towards the woods so he wouldn't wander into the street and get hit by a car. He just sat there and didn't run off. We thought maybe it was hurt. So I called the Humane Shelter to come and get him. We waited and waited and Richard called them back and finally talked to someone. She told him she wouldn't be here until the next morning. What? So we put him in a box with a couple of old blankets and some food(graham crackers, bread, marshmallows and some fruit) and a bowl of water. We sat the box back under Richard's trailer, since it was sprinkling. The next morning the food was completely gone and so was the racoon!! I guess he just wanted a meal and a warm bed!

A few of our pond fish.

This little guy has been hanging in the pond with the gold fish!

I posted a pic of these sweeties before. They were in the back of our property Saturday morning.

This toad was quite good sized. He was on the patio next to the deck.


Obviously, this isn't an animal! I just wanted to show a picture of the cake I got Richard for our anniversary, yesterday! He was surprised and it was so yummy!
