Which Critter Dares To Live Under My House?
I have some pretty flowers blooming in my front flower bed. I don't know their name but they have done so well all summer until Susie decided to use them for a soft, cool bed, since they are near where the A/C water drains. There is a big round sunk-in place where she has made a nest, but I noticed yesterday she has deserted her bed. Now while going back and forth getting the boxes my old computer came in so I can give it all to the renters since they have four half grown kids and only one computer. I noticed something has burrowed a large hole under my house right next to where Susie was sleeping. I'm anxious to find out which critter is living under my house. I'm thinking skunk since that is what we have seen most often in the neighborhood. I wouldn't think Susie would be afraid of it because John once saw her walking beside a skunk. John thinks it's an armadillo but I don't think so, as we have never seen one around here only on the highway near the ranch as roadkill. I'll be watching that hole and hoping it doesn't confront me one night in the dark.
