Yesterday's post and your comments were fun. Good answers! Yes, it was the house cricket I dedded. Mom took the picture of him when he was still alive and hopping in the kitchen, and I was playing with him. In the morning there were cricket legs in the front hall. So either I mashed him, or I ate some parts, leaving the legs.
The hole in the herb pot was dug when I wasn't out on the deck, probably early in the morning, so it wasn't my doing. Mom agrees with those of you who said they think it was a chipmunk. Squirrel is not totally out of consideration, but the neat hole dug so that the soil was outside the pot on the deck seems characteristic of the way chipmunks dig, and the hole was a good fit for a chipmunk. Anyway, squirrel wasn't one of the choices I gave you.
Thanks for playing my game!
Here's a picture of me looking mancatly for today. I am showing off the white fur on my chin and neck. This is my "secondary" napping spot with towel on the deck (yes,I am spoiled). I have a better view of the bird feeder and the birdies flying to it from this spot.
Happy Monday and Happy week, everybody! And special Happy Birthday wishes to my auntie M today. Hope you read this today!
