I love all (or, mostly, all) of God's creatures......but I don't want them in my house! Sossy, our Airedale Terrier, is the only one I really care to have living indoors with us.
We recently had one of these uninvited creatures in our house......a good sized black lizard. Just thinking about it gives me the "heebie jeebies." I really don't like them. I saw this creature in the house one day, but it ran and I lost track of it. We have a dear lady named Martha who works for us one day a week. I heard an 'eek' one day when she was here, and then heard her quietly calling for me. It turns out, she likes these creatures even less than me! She's quite afraid of them.
So, between the two of us, we decided to help it get back outside where it belonged! Martha tried to move it along towards the door with a dust pan, and I tried to sweep it out with a broom. The poor thing was probably scared to death! I had to make Sossy lay down in a different part of the room because she wanted to be in on whatever this was that was taking place. It seemed so exciting to her.
This "dangerous game" lost it's tail, but we managed to get it outside. It lay quietly for a long time, and then finally moved along. Floyd, who was away traveling at the time, said he would have loved to have all this on video! Such a helpful response!
Let's hope that we don't have any more creatures come visit! I may be the one scared to death next time.
