Or maybe not!! The trap was set with the tastiest of tuna!! What could go wrong?
Possibly this. Here is kitty kitty snooping around, although this big guy learned his lesson early on when he got caught the very first time. He hasn't been back in the trap since.
HOWEVER ..... this morning there is SOMETHING in the trap. YAY!!! or not. I wrapped it up a little too tight and can't see much more than some grey fur, which I suspect is not the black and white formal job I was after. I also hear no digging, so I rather imagine another kitty kitty is caught. I'll find out when the sun comes up and let you know.
I thought for sure the camera would show what tripped the door, but alas, there is NOTHING on the critter cam. What's up with that?
On another front, I actually had a Doctor's appointment yesterday. Those who know me, know I don't do Doctors. The Doctors are glad since I'm not civil after waiting in their lobby for an hour before being called, and then waiting another hour in the room. I'm sure there is a big red star next to my name.
Even though it's an old building ... very old ... we are high tech in this little berg. You check in on-line before entering. My appointment? 10:00. At 10:10 I was called in to again wait in another chair in back. Finally the gal took my blood pressure, which by now is always high. That's why I was checking in ... to see if we could lower it a tad.
She asked when I would be back to see the Doctor. Back? What do you mean? I'm here to see the doctor TODAY. Oh she said ... your appointment is just to have your blood pressure taken. In a flash, my BP went off the charts. I made an appointment to see the doctor because I think my blood pressure is higher than it should be ... which is DEFINITELY the case NOW!!!
They got me in a room as I practiced my breathing and calmed my little brain. An hour later a nice Nurse Practitioner came in and I got a prescription. She thought I was ten years younger, so come to find out my blood pressure isn't that high after all.
Feeling like I needed a treat for not coming unglued, I went to Habit Burger, a brand new joint in our little town. There were twelve cars ahead of me at the drive through. I waited ..... and waited ..... and did not move one inch for over 10 minutes. Okay, I'm going to Panda Express.
For ten bucks, you get a lot more food. This will last me three days!! They have their act together since I was only in line about three minutes.
Since I had to drive BACK by Habit (which I've never heard of before) I decided to REALLY treat myself to a shake. With only three cars in line, it can't take long. OR NOT. Twenty minutes later I had my shake in hand. I have to say it was worth it. Of course an Oreo cookie shake is always worth the wait.
I felt even better when I got back home to find this in my fortune cookie. Woohoo!!!!
So now it's time to go see what's in the trap. Honestly, I'm kind of hoping it's not a skunk because that requires lots of fortitude and hutzpah to get rid of. I'm not sure what's worse ... rattlesnakes or skunks!!! I'll let you know tomorrow!!
