Hahaha I can't get over this picture of our turtle! So cute!
Okay, he's not REALLY our turtle. He just wondered into our yard two months back and, even though he has the ability to leave (big space under our gate, that he always crawls under to go eat the bugs that are always dead out front early in the morning), he doesn't. He sticks around the house, eats bugs, and makes our home feel whole again after having to put our dog to sleep last year.
However, I named him Frankie. And I caught him playing in a puddle of water on the back porch after dd and I rinsed off our feet with the water hose...his face...pure joy.
We don't bother him, he stays outside free to roam and can leave when he wishes, and it gives me a good opportunity to teach dd not to touch wild animals, which I think she's starting to grasp the concept =)
Have you ever had a wild animal make your yard it's home?
How about anything not adorable, like an infestation? Just curious =) sometimes wild animals moving in can be cute, like Frankie, but then some can be gross/scary like mice or roaches.
