So far, the wildlife tally in West Virginia is:
1 mountain goat
1 blue-tailed skink
Several hippity-hoppity bunnies
Deer – We’ve lost count. One of the three frequenting the area by our porch keeps giving me the evil eye.
Yup, a mole. My husband was outside grilling and knocked on the porch door, urging me to come outside. He thought, at first, that a rat ran by the edge of the porch, and the realized it was a little black mole. It kept going up and down the side of the building, trying to find its hole. At one point it would have run over my bare toes had I not moved my feet.
And it did, eventually, find the way back to its hole in the ground, next to the porch belonging to the apartment across the hall.
