Well... I have 2 escape artists... and I can't seem to be able to keep them in the backyard... and they HAVE to wait for rainy days to do it!!!
Yesterday, I heard Charlotte and Valentina whining... they do that when they are following an iguana (that's another story... they have been huting, killing and eating green iguanas... we've been able to save a few when we see them, but they have manages to catch a few too)... well.. I looked through the window, but I couldn't see them, even though I heard them... I go to the backyard, and they weren't there, they had crossed a fence that leads to a small hall with a small garden that's on the side to the house. This leads to the balcony and then to the streets. Charlotte is so skinny that she can go through the gate, so I go running to the other side to get them. I take them back to the backyard, tie them up and inspect the fence to see where are they going out... After i think I have it figured out, my mom helped me close where I think they were going out with some wire... I let them loose again and went to take a shower cause I was muddy muddy... After my shower, I go to the balcony to feed the crickets and guess who I found? Yes.. Valentina again in the hall... and I could hear Charlotte running down the street! (Arrgh!) I called her and she came in running to meet me (phew!). I had gotten dark already, so we just left them tied up during the night...
Well, today I woke up to deal with them. I let them loose and went to the other side of the house to look what where they doing to get out... Guess what are they doing... THEY ARE CLIMBING MY NEIGHBOR'S FENCE, CRAWLING ON THE TUBE TILL THEY CROSS THE 9' FENCE THAT DIVIDES THE BACKYARD FROM THE HALL AND JUMPING TO THE OTHER SIDE! Can you believe it! Grrrr! Well, I put a piece of zinc there on the fence so they couldn't climb it, and watched for a while... they tried it, but gave up. 8) I go away... and after half an hour checked on them and Charly wasn't in the backyard
I called her and finally, found her... she had climbed the fence at the end of the backyard and gotten to the other side (still our backyard, but not fenced).... I took her in, tied them both and decided to leave them till tuesday when my dad can come up with something to block her from going out... (he works on weekends, but has tuesday-thursday free).
Then, my little Vale chewed her leash and is loose on the backyard again... I just hope that she doesn't chews Charly's leash... they like to stay together, so having at least one tied, might do the trick... *sigh* why didn't they told me that they were houdini's relatives before I decided to adopt them?
