First, let me tell you that this is not my usual type of “bug” post. Here’s what happened:
My 5 1/2 month old son had just started an afternoon nap and my wife took the opportunity to get in the shower (which is why you can’t believe her if she says I screamed like a little girl and jumped on a chair). I heard my son stirring and walked into his nursery to help him get back to sleep, I sat down next to his crib and was patting him back to sleep when I felt something tickle my foot. At first I just guessed it was the cat, but a moment later it occurred to me that CATS ARE SOFT! I immediately picked my foot up and looked down to see….
This monster staring right back at me
It was dark and he was not the least bit scared of me. I jumped out of the chair and turned on the light (in very manly way) and came back to take a closer look. I found a jar to put him in and nudged him into it and then searched the crib and the rest of the room to see if he had any friends around. I have no idea how this guy got into the house, up a flight of stairs, and made a left into the babies room. I kept him on my desk for a little while for ID, where I grew pretty fond of the fellow, and now he’s been released into the front yard on parole for good behavior.
