Zoey does not need a clock, or a calendar to know that spring has sprung.
She only needs turn her attention to any window screen ...
And the rest of the story is ... one of these monsters, or a close family member
(and these are not the little kids on the block, these are 6-7-inches long)
got into the house and then into the master bathroom.
The ZH said she'd rather use our litter box than go in that bathroom! So ...
Step #1: get kitchen spaghetti tongs
Step #2: get paper bag
Step #3: enter bathroom, close door behind you
Step #4: make lots of noise
Step #5: when monster rushs out from behind the litter-loo,
grab tail with spaghetti tongs
Step #6: drop monster into paper bag, close bag quickly
Step #7: take paper bag into woods, open, monster escapes
Step #8: use bathroom
Step #9: sterilize spaghetti tongs
P.S. she does let me and Mag chase and play with the littler ones
