Yesterday my mom was in the exercise room where one of my cats stays when we swap cats (they fight so one gets locked up every other day) and Pumpkin was meowing incessantly.... My mom looked at the food and water dishes on the windowsill (5 feet high) to see if they were empty.
Lo and behold.
A large bullfrog was in the water dish.
HOW he got there nobody knows. To get a frog into that room he'd have to hop through a heck of a lot of furniture that's stored in the garage, then jump high up to the windowsill and find the water.....the window is at ground level (the 1st floor is halfway underground on one side) and we only open the window with the screen.
Another time I had a pet 1 inch long American Toad for 2 weeks....one night I left her tank open on the ground and I found her the next day under the china cabinet, looking very smug with her front feet tucked in neatly.
I feel so bad because she had to go without water for a while (looks like the dog's water dish wasn't touched) and she had NO food!
I'm glad my kitty didn't eat her.
Sorry about your little froggie, too. I love Clawed frogs and their personalities! It's just a shame that yours got out :( :( :(
