Hidey Hole.

Last weekend Mr. Zoom and I were outside. Playing in the street. Well, not exactly like that, but sorta.

I sat on the curb and noticed a fur ball inside a pipe/hole in the curb:

At first I was scared. If the animal was dead, I was going to be really really sad. Look. I know about the circle of life and all of that. But I can't handle kids or animals in pain. It wonks up my whole day.

I realized it was breathing, whatever it was. I shrieked at Mr. Zoom to "come over here right now. You have to see this." He did. We looked closer. "It's breathing" I said. "Well Zoom...I don't know how you are going to play that one." he said.

I took a picture. We tried to figure out what it was based on the fur. I said "oooo. It looks like bunny fur! It's a baby bunny!" Because I know what bunny fur looks like? Up close? No. Because I want things to be what I want them to be.

I waited around - with astonishing focus, since I'm generally bored within 30 seconds - and my newfound bunny turned around in his pipe and revealed a RAT face.

OOOOOOOO. A rat. Curiosity satisfied, I let the little guy be. After I took his picture.

And then I came home and exploited the image for some cheap giggles (my own giggles - Mr. Zoom's head shaking) via the LOL cat builder:
