Feline Toads

Feline Toads, originally uploaded by A!ison.

When The Captain stayed with us over a week ago, he kindly removed the two toads that took up residence in our garage. According to him, he walked the toads about eight houses down and placed them in a bush near some water. Ahem, not hard to find here in Florida… the water that is. Anyway, to my surprise one of the toads returned this past Thursday. I knew it was the same toad. He’s low to the ground, greenish and slow moving. I mean, there was a part of me that wondered if there was a little family of toads BUT guess who returned this afternoon? His spry, black friend! Special K is insisting that it’s a family. We actually had 4 toads in our garage, not 2 but I do not agree, they look exactly like the two that were carried away. I mean, seriously, what the heck? How in the world does a TOAD find his way “home”?

My solution is to catch them in a box and drive them across town. I feel like we found stray kittens in our garage for crying out loud! If you have any thoughts on this bizarre matter, please leave a comment.

Now where is a box? And where is the Captain?

PS – I named the first returnee “Eminem” ‘cause he just keeps coming back. Now that I have two that returned and in keeping with the comeback theme, I’ll name #2 after one of the greatest comebacks, Marlon Brando. The one pictured is Marlon.
