My morning presents

At least the last two mornings. The first was dead baby bats (murciélagos in Spanish).

My neighbors heard something in my new palapa and they thought they might be rats or mice.   Hugo climbed up and couldn't find anything.  The next morning I found the first bat.   After finding the second one we concluded it must be my cat, Tomas, catching them somehow.   Tomas does not let anything live in the yard except toads.   I regularly get mice dropped near the front door ... partially eaten.  Sadly, also a bird or two.

The second was snakes.   Very thin about a foot long and also well chewed

The third is toad poop that looks very similar to their diet which is mostly cucarachas.   Toads (sapos in Spanish) come out at night.   The other evening we watched a toad chase a cucaracha across the lawn. No mice or birds for a few weeks so they may have come to know Tomas.


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
