    Re: Strange visitors

    A rat in the lounge, a green budgie behind the gas fire having slowly fluttered down the chimney, and a buzzard in the conservatory. He was quite impressive but I wasn't allowed to keep him. Also had a big cow which turned up occasionally but that was just the ex mother-in-law.

    We have had a couple of Blue Tits and the odd sparrow and last year a bat. But my neighbour had a pine marten in his kitchen last week.

    Forgot to add, a horse in the kitchen. Sister gave the reins to mum whilst she went to the bathroom. Mum wasn't keen on horses so took a step back. Horse took a step forward, and mum took another step back, and horse took another step forward.... repeat, repeat, repeat....
    Give it big humpties

    Once had a big hairy beastie in my bathroom, calm as you like in the bath, didnt even flutter an eyelid when I bore down on him.

    TBF, Stu C is completely house trained, and done a fine job of fitting my shower, as well.

    Do I win?

    I used to have a Jack Russell who once chased a badger into my house!
    Thankfully, he chased him out almost immediately, but for a couple of minutes it was like WWIII in my house.
