Oh, Murph …

What a special boy he is!

Just look at that face!

Why, oh why are his toes facing upwards in the first photo?! How adorable is that?!

Secondly, you who know Murph know he is superbly calm & loving & funny … so that black beard is a peculiar event.

The Murphster, with his cute legs. He’s nearly always doing something weird & adorable with them.

Raccoons can wreck a room within moments and they may think you are a living toy as you attempt to clean!!

Ah man, but they are SO cute when they do it! Have I mentioned Gypsy is now practicing her lunge & jump attack capabilities? !! Oh yes!! I might add, she is quite good!! Skilled. Self-taught!!

She looks like an angel, doesn’t she? And, she is
… when she doesn’t behave like a hellion.

I have constant small wounds and some nice, new white claw scars on my shoulders that won’t tan, but, I’ve also been loved, kissed, groomed & thought of as a mother by a beautiful, wild animal, so it’s all good. What an experience!

I have to keep a dog from a raccoon, and vise versa, and a coon away from our special lizard, Murph!

What am I doing?!! How did I get here again!?!

  1. He often pouts when I bring him inside. He becomes like liquid lizard, he shuts down and I must pour him out of my hand. Next, I must fix his limbs because they are bent any which way from the pouring. It’s ridiculous & adorable.

  2. “The Many Moods of Murph”, I like that. I am so glad you see the moods by looking at him. It often seems you’ve had a lizard. Perhaps you almost feel you have in knowing Murph so well.
