The Plant Hider

IZA:  I FOUND IT, I FOUND IT!!!  It was REAL tricky cuz it has no warmth to it, but I FOUND it!

I even broke down some leafs onna big plant getting at it.
It was impressive...  TBT wasnt too thrilled though. He liked the big plant leafs.
 But I had a "PURPOSE"...  See how I kept watchin the broke leaf? 
I could SMELL IT!  And I FINALLY pulled it out!

It looked a lot like THIS...
And HERE IT IS!
Some darn TOAD!
It smelled bad.  I TOLD TBT so, but he couldnt smell it.
But he recognized it.  Nasty old toad.  A sneaky one that hides fer the Winter in weerd places.  Like unner the BBQ cooker cover mostly.
Its the first time we found one IN the house.   I got rewarded with a whole HANDFUL of crunchies all to myself...  Nom, Nom, Nom...
Ayla tried to lay a claim to it fer some noms, but TBT knew I had been searchin and I had found it. He tossed it outside (with a bit of annoyance cuz its a really annoying toad even though he generally LIKES toads).

But no one of ya guessed a TOAD in the indoor plant!  And who WOULD have guessed a toad?

OMC, you had a toad in your indoor plant? How convenient for it to come inside to you like that!

Wowza! You hunted the horny backed toad. We are so impressed! Much respect.

Who invited Mr Toad into the house?

Well done Iza! Nothing can hide from you.Never mind about the big leaf, that was the evil toad's fault, not yours.

Great job! What a find. Our Mommy moved a large plant indoors for the winter (several years ago) and FIVE toads made their way out of it! We loved it, but the Mommy ruined our fun and turned them out. That was the end of the houseplants, too. MOL!

We want to thank you for stopping by and leaving condolences on the loss of Princess. It means so very much. xoxo

An update on the shelter - so far a total of 14 cats were lost to the virus. The virus has been kept at bay and so far none has passed since last week. The dogs have gotten the OK to leave the shelter in to foster homes. We had a touch and go with one cat but the vet worked hard and kept him alive. This virus is worse than most of calici virus seen. =(

WOW, Iza, what an awesome find! You really earned those treats. I don't think I would want to eat a toad anyway - I bet they taste nasty.

Daisy said...

Wow, how did that thing get in there anyway?!?

Megan said...

Congratulations Iza - persistence, application of effort, tenacity and superior smelling skills.

How cool, an indoor hoppy toad! I would have never have guessed it.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Ha! He thought he could get through the cold season in the warmth and coziness of your home! Little did he know that a great huntress like Iza, one with patience and determination, was in that very house and would not let him get away with it!
I'm glad you got some crunchies, Iza, and didn't have to munch the frog, bleh!

Oui Oui said...

Why do we never find good things in our house??? And you didn't eat the toad? We wonder if they taste like chick-hen?

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

No Oui Oui, you DONT wanna eat toads. They taste bad.

Punapippuri said...

Iza, Mirsku wishes to point out that 12lb is simply big boned: he has 7.7kg of mighty mancat muscle. Translated into your language, wethinks that is maybe a bit more than your polite girlcat mass.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

Wow, 16 pounds? Skeeter was that awesome once...

Seriously, I knew Mirsku outweighed me. It was a joke. MOL! ~ IZA
