And the hunter, home from the hill

Zipper is back again. I'm so glad I didn't throw away those chilly mice in the freezer! I opened a cabinet which is built against the defunct brick chimney that runs from basement to attic in our house, to grab some oil tonight, and who was staring back at me but him.

By the time Thing 2 was found, he was halfway into the wall again. She grabbed hold of him, and after the nice man at the pet store suggested we chill him down with wet towels to relax him, she managed to pull him out.

He's back in his cage.

And he's bigger. I don't even want to think about what he's been eating for a couple of months. Sigh.

In case there was any doubt that you are a stronger woman than I, it can now effectively be banished.

I can deal with snakes, but not with ongoing concerns that it will appear in my bed.
