Awwwww!!!! At least you don't have mice anymore! We used to find mice droppings near the fish food. I got SOOOOOOOO mad!

I'd trap him and bring him to the vet to get checked out and try to tame him!:3

I would say as a wild animal don't tame him, but if be becomes people friendly on his own and so chooses to hang with you then let him. I know someone who befriended a wild red fox and comes to her home every day the same time for treats and pets. He's terrified of any other human though and if she isn't outside he will lay by her screen door and chirp for her to come out xD. I use to have a raven friend too I fed every day and eventually it just started showing up when I came outside begging for food from me.

What I would do if I found it in there:
Search for little canopies and toys for it!
SO CUTE!
What did you do with it?

Meow, my beta fish, passed :( He was flushed. Sagwa and I where at his funeral. Mom did not bring me to get another, but we shouldn't get one at Petco... Anyway, I will keep you updated on that
And I still have one, Jaws, but I have to share him with my mom
pic is of my cat (not profile pic, but pic in signature) Sagwa. (She would never EVER hurt or kill a fish. She only kills moths and by accident.)

I thought it was a weasel/ferret type critter.

Surely it doesn't survive off of whole grain cereal, dried tree fruit & Ghiradelli hot cocoa.

While it is squeezable cute, I would set up one of those Havahart animal traps designed for chipmunks/squirrels. If you're living in a remote area like that, your neighbor should have one in their garage for the occasional unwanted guest.

When I'm wandering/stumbling around in the kitchen @ night for a bite to eat, I don't want to end up having to take a trip to the hospital for a rabies shot.

Having a unexpected furry critter, chew into my hand while I reach for ingredients to create a midnight snack or beverage is not my idea of a good time.

You already have the photograph to prove it wasn't some dream, now it's time to rid the house of it & seal off the suspected points of ENTRY.

Don't forget you can get a handful of dried urine & nature's own foul organic "le chocolat" smeared all over your edibles.

Sounds funny, but as you're well aware by now, it's NOT pleasant & NOT part of any known food group.

2%-5% bleach & h2o solution to clean up any & all areas it's been using as shelter.
