If, as the saying goes, AD's home is his castle - then these are the castle guards.
With the local temperatures being so cold and continuing to drop the field mice and rats are really scrambling to find warmer digs.
Much to my dismay the little varmints have been coming closer and closer to the house.
Much to our fur kids delight the little varmints have been coming closer and closer to the house.
And the fur kids have been standing guard almost constantly. Even the slightest movement outside catches their eye and they go into a frenzy wanting out the door.
I've been knocking on the glass to give any wildlife fair warning the guards are going to be let loose.
Heaven forbid that one of my sweet darlings would actually catch one of those creatures!
Oh, and please overlook the Christmas tree and stocking post that are still in the living room. I really am going to take them down this week . . .
