It will be no surprise to any of you that Burton is LOVING the catio. He loves the ability to go in and out as he pleases – and go out without a harness and leash. HE spends a good amount of the day out there (as long as it’s not too hot). But he especially loves going out after dinner, as the bugs seem to be more plentiful then. He LOVES chasing bugs.
But the other night, something new wandered into the catio.
He was small (about the size of a loonie), and very well camoflauged, as you can see. But as soon as he hopped, he was on Burton’s radar.
I had a hard time getting pictures of him. I kept losing him in the grass in and around the catio. Every time he hopped in, Burton had a blast following him about and investigating with a curious paw. You can see a little video here.
Eventually, Mr. Toad hopped onto the pavement of the back driveway, out of Burton’s reach.
But it allowed me to get some better pictures.
We never saw ANY toads at the townhouse. I’m so happy Burton got to have this experience! I hope there are many more! (Now I have go dig out my toad house and find a good spot for it in the catio.)
