Wednesday Excitement....

Look what was just sitting on our little verandah yesterday!
Picture enlarged....SHE didn't get that close.
 A filigree Siberian hamster RAT!

SHE raced to get the camera and it disappeared.
SHE raced out the side door and it was
there........looking at HER!
Being a typical blogger, SHE took its picture,
and retreated!
 When SHE looked back, it was climbing our security door!
That's when we noticed in the welcome mat!
It fell off the door....
 sat around the side of the house to recover and then disappeared.

When we were finally allowed out, we searched EVERYWHERE!
But it was gone.


  1. Wow, you haf exciting visitors!!!!
    I bet you were shouting your welcome REALLY loud weren't you?!?
    Loves and licky kisses

    Well done to your mum for getting such great photos!

  6. HA!!! We bet you were going to give that critter the same warm welcome we would:)

  7. That's a foolish rat going in a terrier's yard!

  8. maybe he wanted to come inside and do some cooking for you :)

  9. If you let me get to it, it would have been eaten!!!

  10. Oh my gosh, we just ran head first into the computer screen.

  11. Wow sure looks like Bella was determined to get that rat. Her face made me fall out laughing. And thanks for your prayers and keep sending them, I'm still not eating dog food but I will eat a little bit of chicken.

    Aroo to you,

  14. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! WHAT???? They didn't let you out right away??? I bet you could have caught it! I would have caught it! How fun!!! Maybe it will come back?

  15. Keep searching! He's out there somewhere!

  16. Now SEE????? This is ALL ... HER ... fault... If you had not been imprisoned all those days and NIGHTS... that guy would NEVER have tried to take up Residence in YOUR Yard... SHE should be ashamed of herself.
    DARN... a shame you didn't get to NAB that guy... he would have been FUN to play with... fur about 87 seconds... We hear that they Break Easily.

  17. Bella, you did indeed look hard for the rat! BOL


  18. You mean that it isn't a protected Australian species?

  19. I bet that little guy is long gone ....probably caught whiff of you hunters and took off for the hills
