Ahhh...

This is a little too much for me - I think I might need to pack up and move back to Connecticut.

I was doing the dishes this morning when I heard Katy making a strange sound in the living room. I looked over and she had what appeared to be a live black snake - IN HER MOUTH! I screamed and about hit the roof. The little guy turned out to be a lizard, and he made a break for it before I could get to him. I chased him around with a cup for a while, but he finally scurried under the couch, and that was the last I saw of him. At least for now. I know he is still camping in my living room.

The cats didn't even wake up during all this activity. I think I may need to start feeding them less. They're worthless, I tell you! After nine years of vets bills and daily care, I think the least they could do is provide us with a little pest control.

I googled it, and it was in fact a skink!

Eric the cat did capture it and eat it this morning. :( I'm not totally sure it was the same skink though...it looked smaller than I remember.
