Hunting frogs

Yesterday should have been prime frog hunting weather with all that rain. But I didn't see any. In the evening time I went out again. I'm determined to get Laura Belle her froggie.

I didn't see a single one. I did see one little creature and I thought maybe he would do so I carefully brought him indoors and put him down. Then I went back out as I would prefer to send a frog.

When I had rumble tum later and came back my mum was in the kitchen washing up. But where was my catch?

"Where is he?" I demanded to know.

Mum looked down.

"Where is who?"

"That cute baby slug I caught and brought in."

"I took him out. He was ikky." she said.

"But I thought Laura Belle might like him," I protested.

"I'm pretty sure she wouldn't. Slugs aren't funny like frogs. They don't exactly give you much of a chase."

I suppose my mum is right but she should check with me before letting my prey escape. First the bird, now this. Can't a boy keep any livestock?

The other unfair thing my mum has done is put her water in a bottle, I have tried but I can't get in. Mercifully our water is still in a glass though so I wasn't without. But still...

I'd try knocking that bottle over.

That is really unfair about the water bottle. Why doesn't she want to share with you? Hope your frogs come back.

How do you know the slug is a "he"?

Mum are no fun when come to ikky stuff. You need to pick pretty nice things for your mum to let you keep them inside mate.

Thank mew SO MUCH for hunting froggies for me Toby! I have faith in your hunting skills, and know that soon I will have my little froggie for a pet. While I appreciate the effort you put in to catching me a slug, I would much rather wait for you to catch me a frog. Besides, my meowmy agrees with your mum...she thinks slugs are icky also, and wouldn't let me keep the slug as a pet. I hope your prime frog hunting weather continues. Happy hunting!

Love,

Laura Belle
