Okay, it's wildlife. Close though, eh?
There was the oddest of critters just... showing up inside our fenced in yard.... and onto our back patio. We gave him/her water and lodged him/her for the night with a plan of relocating him/her the next day to somewhere he/she would likely live a more duck-like (or whatever) life. But, in the morning, it was gone.
"Here ducky, ducky, ducky..."
Nowhere to be found.
And then, another sudden guest... just showing up with a MEOW< MEOW ... we fed her tuna, gave her lodging for the night, then took her to the animal shelter the following day.
A week later, I took my daughter and granddaughters down to rescue her. Mandy Baxter is now home and happy.
