The kids came screaming into the house the other day absolutely terrified and shaking due to being "attacked" by an animal. It took a few minutes to calm them down to find out what had prompted this. Stung by a wasp? Did the neighbour's rather exuberant dogs get loose again? Nope. A black cat poked his head into our yard and looked at them.
Clearly we need to increase our exposure to animals!
So Rachel came by this evening to introduce the kids to her temporary dog Ginger (she was dogsitting for the week).
