Renegade Snail

Sarah the snail has a itchy foot...and she was on the move Monday night. Someone (ahem, Esme!) left the lid off the terrarium. We caught Miss Sarah near the ceiling on Tuesday morning, but not until everyone including the cat had a chance to ooh and ahh over how high she got on the window casing. I must say, Sarah does sort of match the color scheme in the kitchen.

I still can't believe these snails are around. Ada started collecting them in May, and I was skeptical at best about their "petness." I figured the first one would last a week at best. But both girls love them, and Ada tends to them well. Apparently. Now the snail census has increased to nine (nine!), I have to say they are sort of growing on me. Well, not growing on me! But creeping, sometimes, yes. No, really, they aren't that gross, I promise. But I do prefer the rabbit, if I have to play favorites.

Petness! I am so using that term. I can't wait to create a conversation so that I can drop that one. Awesome.
