A mouse rested in the corner, just there, by the kitchen. A small bunny had made its way, unnoticed, into the kitchen and was now sitting silently and still in the middle of the floor. There were more critters in various locations through the house. A monkey was perched on the edge of a chair, his tail hanging down the back. A duck had managed to make a safe landing by the flower-pot.
No, I don’t live in a zoo, nor is it a rescue house. Yes I do adore animals and wouldn’t put it past myself to have a myriad of them, but that isn’t in the cards right now. What is in the cards right now is a four-footed companion with her own zoo of dog toys.
Now and then she decides she must set them all free and spread throughout the house. Today was one of those days. It started with a green frog being carried into the hallway. Then the pink elephant broke out of jail, also known as the toy box. After that the great escape happened as a bear, Buffalo, owl and lamb were rushed to safe places. I lost rack after that.
I found the bunny purely by accident, my foot made contact with something soft while I was doing something in the kitchen. The something soft skittered across the floor from my kick and that’s when I saw the mouse. The four-footed one however was nowhere to be found. Perhaps rescuing all her friends was too much. Maybe that’s why in found her fast asleep under the dinning room table all by herself.
