Toad or Cat?

November 2, 2009

They can't all be winners.

I took these pictures a while ago, but I’m still curious to know what did this. Brad put these seedums in pots by our front step, and about a month ago something dug into them and made holes. So what does this? A cat with an impatient bladder who can’t make it four more feet to the yard, or a less-than-bright toad who thinks he’s found the perfect place to over winter?

I watered these immediately after taking the picture.

    …a squirrel burying nuts?

    I’m glad to see the plants aren’t dead. Yet.

    The squirrels replant a lot of the stuff in my yard. They think I want walnut trees in all the pots and then they take the pretty stuff up the tree into their nest. A little frustrating, but fun to watch!

    A small snake?

    Those little plants are so cute. Do they need to come inside?

    Gnomes….those little buggers like to dig.
