I have a zoo in my house!

I'm sure some of you remembered the two incidences where I had a SNAKE in my house, once in my shower and once slithering out from behind the computer tower next to my desk! I've also had two lizards find their way in my house, one into the closet and the other into the second bath. Today there was a BIRD in my shower! My poor husband is always present to see me freak out whenever we have uninvited animal 'guests' in our home. Today was no exception. I jumped about a foot and said h*** s*** there's a BIRD in the shower!! It was a TINY bird. Apparently it may still be somewhere in our house. He said he got it out of the bathroom but then it flew out into the main part of our bedroom and then he lost it somewhere. I don't have any windows open, the slider was open but he said it never went out the door. Do you get uninvited animal guests into your home? Do you treat them well or do they scare the holy living daylights out of you when you discover them? LOL!

Hi mommyboo! As I'm out in the country I get my share of uninvited guests inside the house from time to time. One of my most memorable though was when a tree frog had been in the shower with me. The only reason I even noticed him in the first place was because as I was putting my foot down in the stall I felt something squishy underneath. Not knowing what it was I kicked it aside, but when I looked down I realized it was a frog! It shocked me just for a moment at first, but once my eyes adjusted and saw it was a frog I laughed at myself and called out to my husband so he could take the frog outside where it belonged. Fortunately I'm not scared of little tree frogs. I felt bad for the little guy. First he had to endure the hot water, then he almost got stepped on, and then he got kicked. I don't doubt he was happy to be set free after all he'd been through! LOL Happy mylotting!

I live out in the country in the middle of nowhere and we always get uninvited animals in the house. The cats deal with the lizards for us, so we don't have to catch them and relaese them into the yard, but I hate to find the remains. We've had snakes, both venomous and non-venomous get in the house, especially when it gets cooler outside. Those are the ones we freak out over. We have to call our neighbor over if my dad or another male isn't in the immediate vecinity. We've also had the occasional frog. Those my dad freaks out over. He made my mom catch the last one, even though she had a broken hand, because my brother is in Afghanistan and I'm not living there anymore. We've also had the spiders and flies that people get in their houses.

Wow, it's magical!As I'm scared of many animals, luckly, I have no such experience. Just once, at the beginning of working for this company, I put keep some files in my cabinet, unfornately, I found rats visited there and peed on my files. It was so awful! But yes, I'm for the opinions to treat animals well. If I had encountered this situation, I would call for help what I can reach!But I hope it won't be true!
