Remember when my cat Rat ate my fish?

She's always up to something and intentionally knocks things over when I'm looking.

She actually enjoys watching my reaction.

Which is why her newest trick is making me wonder why she won't let me see her do it.

I have a heavy brass bell hanging in the dining room and the other night I was home alone when the bell rang.



Loud.

I jumped up and there sat Rat looking as shocked as I was.



Wow. She rang the bell.

The other night the Island King and I drove up to the store and as we came around a corner I saw a coyote duck into some woods.
It was just a brief glimpse but I saw him.
On our way back home we saw the coyote running full speed down the middle of the road. I was telling the Island King to get his phone so we could get a picture but then the coyote made a sharp turn into a church parking lot.

I whipped the car into the parking lot and saw him run into the woods.

I have a cousin who lives on the water here in Northwest Florida and when I ran into her the other day she told me about her new friend.

She was on her dock and saw this guy swimming around.



It's not a turtle we usually see around here so she sent the picture to someone at a local college and he identified it as a Hawksbill Turtle.

Hawksbills are not native to this area, living primarily in the Caribbean coral reefs. They grow to about 3 ½ feet and eat sponge and jellyfish.

Rat
The Island King has a cat
named Rat. He named her that because
she is SO small. She's not much bigger than a kitten. According to the vet she's
perfectly healthy – she's just a miniature cat. But the name Rat fits her
in other ways as well. She doesn't like...

Cows
For years we've been
teasing the Island King about being scared of large animals. He denies it but... He's always had to “work”
if we went horseback riding. Swimming with the manatee?
While all of us were in the water he claimed “someone needs to stay
in th...

Pulled Over
I ran up to the Circle K
last night to grab some milk and learned all about bicycle rules
while I was there. I was standing at the
counter when this man walks in. Normal looking guy who can't wait to
tell us his story. He says they needed cat
food and his w...

Pensacola's Graffiti Bridge Art
My sister sent me a text
before Christmas asking which was my favorite – a dolphin,
mermaid's tail, sea horse or manatee. I immediately answered
dolphin. A few minutes later she
sent another text telling me to pick another one. Ok. It was a toss up
between ...
