"we thought we'd wrap it for you this time"

I may have been maligning Zen yesterday by calling her the Mastermind of the Frog Invasion.

Orac has just triumphantly deposited a frog on my (carpeted) office floor. Not just ANY old frog, oh no. This one was gift-wrapped: draped in some of the luminous green feathers that had been ripped out of one of the cat toys motorpickle kindly gave us.

So this time the frog had been dragged in through the catflap and up two flights of stairs. It was still breathing and blinking but looking significantly less happy than it had been yesterday. Sadly I did not have a camera within reach to take a picture before rotwang took it back outside (this time we left it in the front garden, where the cats don't go).

It could have been worse; I was not actually on the phone to a customer at the time...

Enough with the f**king frogs already, cats.

This frog, sitting in the dining room and being intently stared at by two cats, did not appear to have any evidence of green feathers clinging to it, so I'm guessing it wasn't the same one as earlier. Also placed into the front garden, where it hopped away.

Four in two days. I'm almost worried to leave the house tomorrow in case I come back to find it full of displaced amphibians....
