Kevin was just walking the boys and saw him up there, checking things out. He poked his head back in to tell me, because I live for wildlife alerts and he knows this. I went to look and sure enough, he was shuffling down the steps. He went under the bushes. Now I'm askeered he'll go to the back yard!
It reminds me of our New Year's Eve possum. We stayed home that year. Angus was just about five months old, and I didn't want to leave him for long.
Sometime around midnight we took Angus out back to go potty. He went to the far corner of the backyard, and suddenly we heard, "OOooooOOOoooo!" and saw Angus BEELINING back for the house, ears back, tail tucked. He was visibly shaken when he reached the deck, and continued to look in the direction from whence he came, saying, "OooooOooooO!"
It scared the willies out of me. What in the world? We got a flashlight, and there he was. A HUGE, ancient possum, sitting on our fence.
Once we saw what it was, we got a very big laugh out of Angus' impersonation of Mr. Chicken.
And that is how Angus came to be known as The Cowardly Lion, and eventually our Dandy Lion.
