Chasing Herman the Ermine
I saw Herman last night in a late-night high-speed chase around The Pad with Travis and Mika in hot pursuit.
Herman was checking out the kitchen, hunting for a late-night snack. Mika heard him first and leapt off my bed and skittered around on the kitchen linoleum, cornering Herman behind a cupboard.
I got out of bed, threw on a robe, and ran to catch the action.
Travis bounced around the whole cabin and then joined Mika yipping and scratching around the cupboard. Herman gave a fierce, squeaky yelp and zipped back into the living room and then Margaret’s closet. That’s when I saw him – a white streak way faster than even the dogs’ eys could follow.
Mika and Travis thought they still had him cornered in the kitchen.
Margaret slept through the whole shenanigans.
