Tiny



This is Tiny.  He was in residence in our home, just briefly, earlier this summer.  The picture makes him look huge, but his little temporary aquarium is actually a water glass. After Spencer the Nosey (who has been waiting for this moment for a very long time) noticed Tiny in the living room and alerted me to his presence, I tucked Spencer in the bathroom and bravely set out to confine Tiny. 

Tiny was trying to lay low, probably hoping Spencer would leave him the hell alone, so I took advantage of this quiet moment to place the glass over him, and slip the paper underneath the glass (see, I said I would use that scrapbooking paper one of these days).  I then snapped a vey quick photo of Tiny (always thinking of The Blog!), and delivered him outside to his rightful home. 

Oh, then I let Spencer out of the bathroom, and he spent the remainder of the afternoon sniffing around the Scene of the Crime.  It was a very exciting day.

  1. Tiny is lucky. Great that you were able to get him out of your house unharmed.

    1. I couldn't believe it. Spencer was really pretty gentle, just setting his paw on Tiny, and looking at me!

  2. Cute little guy. My cat spends a lot of time watching lizards.. btw, that's a preying mantis on my post, not a grasshopper...I don't have much luck getting grasshoppers to sit still.

    1. They do love their lizard-watching! Pretying mantis makes much more sense. Well, he's a beauty, either way!

  3. We have no screens, and it's not uncommon to have geckos slip in and out of the kitchen.

    1. Yikes! We have a screen, but the lizard slipping in and out thing was becoming a problem, so Bike Guy devise a cool thing to put on the bottome of the screen. No lizards, and no slugs either, which was an even bigger problem!

    1. Well, I think they're cute, but I wouldn't be too upset if they weren't so common.
