There I was, minding my OWN business, resting early this morning (Sunday, July 29, 2006), my daughter was making me some ice coffee and I was thinking of waking up, and trying to figure out the setting on my trusty Sony camera. When I heard this noise from behind the books on the shelf. scratch...scratch. Now, understand I'm a Monk about keeping the house clean...I knew this sound was NOT coming from outside...
I said to my daughter..."Scout, do you hear that noise???" She came over and said..." Mommy there is SOMETHING behind the books"... She screamed"! I snapped its picture.
You be the judge! Filthy creature leaped down at me, I thought it was going for my throat! We struggled...
I'm keeping it.
Editor's Note: I thought this was really bizarre, and I am certainly not an expert on animals. I am probably like most of you, and immediately thought, "HOAX!". I did contact Virginia, however, , and asked her where the creature was, and this is her reply.
I have it in a cage! We got a giant dog cage at Wal-mart and got it in there. It has giant eyes...webbed toes...long tail like thing...it is hairless except for some very short, soft down like hairs, it is small though with long arms.
It ate some Cornish game hen I made for dinner tonight and some milk stuff I made. I made a hammock for it to lay on and put a litter box in there...it is laying on the hammock now.
It seems friendly enough...but I'm keeping it caged! It watches us from the cage...every move. It like communicates...but I can't explain it... it makes some sounds and gestures. My husband covered it with a sheet, and it is quiet in there.
It is a soft gray color or like a soft chocolate brown color. It has eye lids but no eye lashes... it is dirty (long pointed dirty nails) and has some teeth (they look sharp) but he does not look dangerous. STILL I'M KEEPING HIM CAGED!
My husband said I should never have told, he thinks someone is going to come and take it away. Maybe I should take it to a hospital.
