I just finished talking to my neighbors.
I asked them "Did you catch the chicken?"
They laughed and said "Yes. No more chicken!"
I told them I hadn't seen her for a couple of weeks and I thought for sure a coyote had got her.
I didn't like to ask them what they did with her. I'm not sure they speak English too well, but they assured me she was gone. I'm hoping they took her out to the ranch which one of the children told me they owned.
So that is the end of the saga of Henrietta....However, yesterday I saw what I thought was a baby ground squirrel, but when I looked closer I saw that it was red/brown and sitting up on its haunches, nibbling some seed. It had large round ears almost like Mickey Mouse ears. and a long thin tail -- much longer than a normal rat's tail. Of course it was gone by the time I got my camera. I found a photo of something called a giant wood rat on the internet that looked close to what I saw, at least the ears do. But I thought rats only come out at night and this was the middle of the day. Who knows, maybe we will have another saga going on.
