I’ve been leaving the greenhouse doors open because it gets super hot in there and I’ve been hoping that Munky would decide to leave when she was ready.
Mr.C and I are taking care of Neighbor Mike’s critters this week. So after dinner last night we decided to take Miss Dixie, the black lab for a short walk down to their mailbox to pick up their mail. We got halfway over there when we noticed Brutus walking towards the front porch with a dead creature in his mouth. I chased him down and discovered it was a chipmunk AND I was fairly certain that it was Munky because of some thinned fur on her tail that looked familiar. After some serious screeching at Brut I noticed that she wasn’t dead. I snatched her up and cradled her in my hands. I rushed her into the house and gave her a once-over and didn’t see any open wounds or punctures. She wasn’t moving though so I thought that she may have a broken spine. But as it turned out she was just in shock. After some time in a safe pouch and a small dose of antibiotic (just in case) I took her back into the greenhouse. Once she saw she was ‘home’ she took off like a bat outta hell!
When I checked her this morning she was running around just like nothing ever happened. Whew!I’m sure the fact that Brutus is missing his upper canines was her saving grace!
